Michael Brantley hit the go-ahead homer in the eighth inning, and a few insurance runs helped make for an almost comfortable finish for the Tribe. Trevor Bauer was really solid again and Carlos Carrasco earned the win with one scoreless inning of relief. The Indians enter the All-Star break 52-43 on the season.

Andrew Miller set for rehab appearance on Tuesday |

Fingers crossed it goes well. From Joe Noga:

Miller, on the disabled list since May 26 with a sore right knee, could split time between Columbus and Akron during his rehab, depending on which team is at home on a given day.

”We’re just trying to keep him around here,” Francona said.

Miller threw from the game mound Saturday at Canal Park in Akron prior to the Rubberducks game against Binghamton.

Francona said Miller appears confident and ready to turn things loose when he’s up on the mound.
