Danny Salazar versus the White Sox

The White Sox ended their 14-game head-to-head losing streak against Cleveland by beating the Tribe, 7-3. To do it, they had to defeat Indians starter Danny Salazar who was both brilliant and horrid in his 3.2 IP outing.

Salazar faced just 18 batters allowing six hits, including two homers and a double, and walked two and permitted five runs.

Now here’s the amazing part…

He struck out every other batter he faced.
