CHICAGO (AP) Trevor Bauer's performance was encouraging, and Carlos Carrasco was even better - until a late meltdown.
Bauer took a step toward returning to Cleveland's rotation for the postseason by tossing four effective innings, but the Chicago White Sox overcame a two-run, ninth-inning deficit to beat the Indians and Carrasco 5-4 Tuesday night.
Bauer allowed two runs - on Avisail Garcia's career-high-19th homer in the first - in his second start since suffering a stress fracture in his right leg on Aug. 11. The right-hander also allowed four singles while striking out four and walking none. He threw 43 strikes in the 60-pitch limit set by manager Terry Francona.
