Carrasco dominates Orioles

Carrasco dominates Orioles

Carlos Carrasco has started to look like the kind of pitcher the Indians thought they were getting when they dealt for him in 2009. The right-hander threw seven shutout innings against Baltimore, leading the Tribe to a 6-0 win.

It's the second straight outstanding for Carrasco, who won for the first time in 17 decisions -- since June 29, 2011 -- in his last start at New York. He has not allowed a run or a walk in 12 innings and has seemingly secured a place in the rotation.

The offense was carried by Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley. Both hit home runs. Santana's was a three run shot in the first, Brantley's a two-run drive in the fifth.

Cleveland will play for the series sweep on Sunday afternoon.
