Box Score: White Sox 9, Indians 0

The Indians (68-94) season has come to a woeful, merciless end. In a game as fitting as possible for this entire season, the White Sox (85-77) poured on 16 hits, led by three homers from backup first baseman Dan Johnson (his first HRs of the season), in a complete thrashing of the Tribe.

The next time you see Cleveland baseball, there likely will be plenty of changes to the lineup and the coaching staff. Oh, and Travis Hafner popped out to White Sox 3B Jose Lopez in the ninth. That seems ironic, doesn’t it?
