Here’s to a great week!
Astros 3, Indians 1
The Tribe’s offense struggled against Lance McCullers and a late home run from Brian McCann was the difference Sunday night. With the loss, the Indians are now 22-23 on the year.
Carrasco gave up three earned runs over 7 2/3 innings, striking out six. From Richard Dean:
Carrasco had pitched 21 2/3 innings of scoreless ball at Minute Maid Park before McCann’s fourth homer of the season. Carrasco wasn’t as sharp as McCullers, but he was effective. After allowing five baserunners over the first two innings, Carrasco settled down, retiring 13 of the next 14 batters as he took a shutout into the sixth.
Cabrera batted sixth and went 0-3 in his first game with the Tribe.
Just Trevor being Trevor.
