Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco visits kids at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital

Carlos Carrasco, unfortunately, is injured. He hurt his left hamstring on April 24 in Detroit, and has been rehabbing feverishly to return to the Tribe sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, though, he’s using his free time to make an impact on local kids’ lives.

He visited sick kids on Wednesday at UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital — and their smiles say it all. Thanks, Carlos!

Francisco Lindor had three hits and Carlos Carrasco pitched 6.1 strong innings for his second win in a 3-2 Indians victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.

Mike Napoli had an RBI double, scoring Lindor, in the third, and Rajai Davis and Lindor drew bases-loaded walks off Seattle starter Wade Miley in the fifth. Napoli and Lindor had highlight-reel defensive plays as well.

Carrasco (2-0, 2.79) allowed just a Kyle Seager homer in 6.1 innings, and has allowed just two runs and struck out 13 over his last two starts (14.1 IP).

Zach McAllister, Bryan Shaw (bouncing back after two rough outings) and Cody Allen pitched the final 2.2 innings, with the Mariners scratching out a run in the ninth for the final margin.

Tribe rewind: Cleveland Indians four-game sweep of the Rays behind amazing pitching, near Carrasco no-no


As we embark on a three game series against Tampa Bay starting tomorrow, we figured it would be a good time to reflect on our last visit to Tropicana Field — a four-game sweep in June/July.

Not only did we sweep the Rays, but we did it in impressive fashion, with near no-hitters all around. Here’s a recap:

June 29: 7-1 win behind Cody Anderson

In his second big-league start — and his second against the Rays — Anderson allowed just 2 hits through 8 innings, on just 100 pitches, before Bryan Shaw came in for the 9th.


June 30: 6-2 win behind Danny Salazar

Danny pitched a strong 7.2 innings, allowing only two hits and a walk — with the first hit coming in the bottom of the 6th. The Tribe topped the Rays in that contest 6-2, behind booming homers from Jason Kipnis, Gio Urshela and David Murphy.


July 1: Carrasco nearly throws a no-no

Carlos Carrasco nearly no-hit the Rays the next night, losing his historical achievement with just one out to go — on a single by Joey Butler in the ninth. In all, Carrasco struck out a then-career high 13 in the victory.


July 2: Kluber pitches well, Aviles gives the Tribe the sweep

Corey Kluber struck out 14 in eight innings, but the Indians needed a 10th-inning homer from Mike Aviles to win 5-4 and complete the four-game sweep.

The Indians beat the Red Sox, 7-6, on Wednesday night, to earn the club’s first victory of the 2016 season.

The Tribe took a 4-0 lead in the first on a Jason Kipnis RBI double and a Carlos Santana three-run homer. After Boston regained the lead with a four-run sixth, Juan Uribe managed a sac fly in the sixth before Mike Napoli’s solo shot in the seventh, which proved to be the game-winner.

Zach McAllister, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen combined to throw 3.2 scoreless innings to seal the victory.
