CLEVELAND (AP) — Tim Anderson chased Trevor Bauer after the All-Star tweeted a playful message to him earlier in the day, Yoán Moncada had a two-run homer and four RBIs, and the Chicago White Sox routed Cleveland Indians 9-1 Monday night to stop a three-game losing streak.

Bauer (4-2) matched career highs by allowing eight runs and seven earned runs in five-plus innings, and his ERA rose from 2.45 to 3.42. He had been 3-0 in his previous four starts. Chicago ended his streak of starts allowing four earned runs or fewer at 60, the second-longest in the major leagues since 1970 behind Greg Maddux’s 106 from 1991-94.

Bauer tweeted a playful message to Anderson before the game.

“I’m all in on the bat flips man but if you could skip a day today that would be great,” Bauer wrote. “Even the lord took a day of rest.”

Anderson then chased him with a two-run single in the sixth. He had two hits and is batting .339 with a major league-leading 12 steals.

Last month, Anderson flipped his bat after a home run against Kansas City, and Royals pitcher Brad Keller hit him with a pitch, prompting benches to clear.

Moncada homered in the first, had a sacrifice fly in the third and an RBI double in the fifth. Leury García had three singles, and James McCann added a solo homer for Chicago.

Iván Nova (1-3) allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings for his first win since beating Milwaukee for Pittsburgh on Sept. 21. He had been 0-3 in his prior eight starts.

Jason Kipnis drove in Cleveland’s run with a fifth-inning single and also doubled.

Chicago had three hits in four at-bats in the fifth but scored just one run. Moncada doubled with runners at the corners, and García was thrown out at the plate without a slide, with right fielder Tyler Naquin making the throw to Francisco Lindor, who threw to catcher Roberto Pérez. One batter later, Moncada was doubled off second when he thought the inning had ended on José Abreu’s foulout.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: RHP Kelvin Herrera (lower back) is experiencing back spasms after being removed Sunday against Boston with stiffness. The setup man allowed a career-high five runs in 2/3 innings against Boston.

Indians: OF Leonys Martin (left hamstring) did not play for the second straight day, but manager Terry Francona said he will play Tuesday. Martin did some light running on the field before the game.

UP NEXT

White Sox: RHP Lucas Giolito (2-1) makes his second start since returning from a strained left hamstring. He struck out seven in a five-inning no-decision against Boston last week.

Indians: RHP Jefry Rodriguez (0-1) will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus for his third start. He gave up one run over a career-high seven innings in his last appearance, on April 24 against Miami.
