Carrasco Misses No-Hitter by One Out; Indians 8, Rays 1

Carlos Carrasco just missed a no-hitter on Wednesday night against the Rays, allowing a two-out single to Joey Butler in the ninth inning in the Tribe’s 8-1 victory.

Carrasco had a perfect game until walking Butler with one out in the seventh; he struck out 13 and departed after Butler’s single. He’s tied for second in MLB with 10 wins.
