Indians' Carlos Carrasco allows 2 hits in 8 IP - Saturday 12th August, 2017

Logan Morrison pulls a single to right field to break up Carlos Carrasco's no-hit bid in the bottom of the 7th inning

Carrasco, who came within one out of pitching a no-hitter against the Rays at Tropicana Field on July 1, 2015, fell seven outs shy of turning the trick on Friday night. Joey Butler broke up Carrasco's bid in 2015, and Logan Morrison did so on Friday when he ripped a single to right with two outs in the seventh.

Eddie E ignites: Faria had not allowed a base runner entering the fifth inning. Edwin Encarnacion changed that when he deposited a 2-2 fastball 403 feet over the center-field wall. The barreled ball had a 105.3 mph exit velocity with a 29-degree launch angle.

Off Longo's glove: The Indians had already scored twice in the fifth to take a 2-0 lead when Giovanny Urshela stepped to the plate with one out. He promptly smoked a single up the left side that caromed off of Longoria's glove. Had Longoria managed to make a play on the shot, he might have prevented a run from scoring. Instead, Carlos Santana scored from third and the Indians added two more runs to take a 5-0 lead. Collateral damage from the play saw Longoria suffered a contusion to his left thumb, which caused him to leave the game an inning later.


Indians: Mike Clevinger (5-4, 4.00) rejoins the rotation to make his first start since July 31 at 6:10 p.m. ET Saturday at Tropicana Field. The right-hander gave up 10 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings in his last two starts before a short stint in the bullpen that consisted of a lone appearance in which three scored off him in an inning of work.

Rays: Chris Archer (8-6, 3.80) will oppose Clevinger for the Rays. Archer has made 15 consecutive starts of at least six innings, a career-long streak and the longest by a Rays pitcher since David Price reached 15 from May 13 to July 30, 2014.
