CHICAGO -- The final seven batters for the White Sox reached base Monday night, but Indians closer Cody Allen felt as if he was one pitch away from getting out of the jam -- right until the end of the ninth-inning meltdown that led to a 4-3 loss.
"I never felt like we were out of it until we were," Allen said. "But it's just one of those things. They hit some good pitches, they hit some bad pitches."
