Indians' offense helps Carrasco get fourth win

By  | 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Shelley Duncan and Orlando Cabrera each had two RBIs, Carlos Carrasco pitched six solid innings and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-3 on Saturday.
Duncan, who was pinch-hitting, and Cabrera both had two-run singles during the eighth to put Cleveland ahead 7-2. Duncan had a bases-loaded drive off J.P. Howell that hit high off the left-field wall, but he was held to a single because it looked like outfielder Sam Fuld might be able to catch the ball.
Carrasco (4-2) gave up two runs and seven hits, helping the AL Central-leading Indians end a three-game losing streak. Cleveland had been outscored 23-4 during the short skid.
