Happy Friday, everyone!

What a wacky game this was. Carlos Carrasco did not look sharp but he still made it through 5.1 innings. When he left the game, the Indians were winning by a score of 7-5. Nick Goody took care of that with one pitch to Josh Donaldson. The game would last another five innings and an 11th inning grand slam by Yangervis Solarte proved to be too much for the Tribe to overcome in game 1 of the double header.

The Indians scored 7 runs in one inning in the first game and that wasn’t enough to get a win. So the offense had an even bigger explosion in game 2 by scoring 9 runs in the fifth inning, which was more than enough to get the split. On top of that, Adam Plutko looked marvelous over 7.1 innings and gave the bullpen a much needed rest.
