The Sox lost to Cleveland 3-2 at U.S. Cellular Field.

The White Sox (60-73) have dropped 15 of their last 20 games, but Abreu has not stopped competing.

He is a lock to win American League Rookie of the Year honors, and Abreu also figures to get some MVP votes.

"I don't know if I envisioned it, but you realized he's a good hitter," Sox manager Robin Ventura said when asked for his thoughts on Abreu before the season started. "You hope for something like this but I don't think anybody was sitting there putting a stamp on it, that these was going to be the numbers that he'd have. And there's always room for improvement. Whether those numbers are going to be better, jumbled or different, I think he'll get better just as experience helps him."

Adam Dunn drove in the White Sox' final run with an RBI single in the eighth inning.

Sox starter John Danks pitched 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits.
