The Tribe made this one interesting late, scoring three runs in the bottom of the ninth, but alas it wasn’t enough. Carlos Carrasco struggled, giving up five earned runs over 6 13 innings. With the loss, the Indians are now 77-59 on the season.

Josh Donaldson’s next chapter: mapping out a return to big league games for the Indians |

Exciting stuff. From Joe Noga:

Donaldson, limited to just 36 games for the Toronto Blue Jays because of shoulder and calf injuries, worked out Sunday at Progressive Field under the watchful eyes of Cleveland trainers prior to the Tribe’s game against Tampa Bay. Though a timeline for his return to playing in big league games has not yet been established, Donaldson said he is excited about the progress he’s made.

”My body is coming to the point now where I feel very much comfortable in going out there and playing,” Donaldson said. “Not only playing at an ordinary level, but as a very high level as well.”
