Carrasco K's 11 as Cleveland beats Chicago 4-0
(CHICAGO) - His pitch count soaring in the early going along with his strikeout total, Carlos Carrasco looked as though he might be in for a rather short night. Carrasco struck out 11 while pitching two-hit ball over seven innings, and the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 4-0 on Monday. Michael Brantley hit his 11th homer and the AL Central leaders took advantage of another wild outing by Lucas Giolito to win for the fifth time in six games. Carrasco (8-4) gave up singles to Kevan Smith and Charlie Tilson in the second before striking out Adam Engel to end the threat. The right-hander issued just one walk. Carrasco piled up 50 pitches in the first two innings, though he did whiff five batters. But he threw only eight pitches in the third and rolled the rest of the way. Three relievers combined to work the final two innings, with Neil Ramirez retiring all three batters in the ninth to complete the two-hitter. Giolito (4-7) threw more balls (47) than strikes (46) in giving up four runs and four hits in five-plus innings. The 23 year old righty walked four to bring his season total to 43 as the White Sox opened a seven-game homestand on a losing note after taking two of three at Boston.
