Carrasco Loses Game, Saves Pen; Rangers 5, Indians 1
Mike B. | On 17, May 2015
Carlos Carrasco tossed an odd complete game, resulting in a loss, but saving the bullpen for the upcoming four game series against the Chicago White Sox. Carrasco tossed eight innings, allowing seven hits and five runs, while sticking out nine on 114 pitches in the Tribe’s 5-1 loss to the Rangers Sunday afternoon.
The Indians only offense of the day came when Michael Brantley doubled home Jason Kipnis in the top of the fifth inning. The defeat ends the Tribe’s mini-two game win streak. The pair of wins equals their longest streak of the year and was just their second series victory.
W: Nick Martinez (3-0)
L: Carlos Carrasco (4-4)
HR: Mitch Moreland (2, 6th inning off Carrasco 1 on, 1 Out)
