It was a Wednesday afternoon to forget for Chicago White Sox left-hander Dallas Keuchel.

The 34-year-old hurler got torched by the Cleveland Guardians, allowing 10 runs (eight earned) on 10 hits and recording just three outs before he was removed from the game.

In the bottom of the second inning, 11 Guardians stepped to the plate against Keuchel, with the big blow coming in the form of a Jose Ramirez grand slam.

The 2015 AL Cy Young winner didn't receive much help from his defense. The White Sox committed five errors, including three by shortstop Tim Anderson.

Following an 11-1 loss, White Sox manager Tony La Russa took the onus for his team's performance.

"I take the heat for that," La Russa said, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times. "It's a common problem when you have an off day and you have to push. We weren't ready to play early, and it's my job to get that done."

The rough outing ballooned Keuchel's season ERA to 16.50.
