Chisenhall Messes With Texas

by Chris Mosch


The Monday Takeaway
Lonnie Chisenhall has been teasing a breakout, as he entered Monday’s contest with a .365/.413/.538 slash line in 176 plate appearances this season. But nobody could have expected the show the former first-round pick put on during Cleveland’s 17-7 blowout of the Rangers. When the Indians walked off the field, Chisenhall had accomplished a stat line that no other player in history had ever recorded.

Chisenhall started off his historic night by singling home the second run of the game off Nick Martinez as part of a three-run first inning. In his second trip to the plate, the Cleveland third sacker sat back on a 1-1 changeup at the knees from Martinez, hooking it just inside the right-field foul pole.

The two-run blast by Chisenhall put the Indians up 8-1, and the visitors had put double-digits on the scoreboard by the time Chisenhall came to bat for the third time. Scott Baker was in for mop-up duty and surrendered Chisenhall’s second home run of the night, this one just beyond the reach of a leaping Daniel Robertson.
