15 Comments

NINTH INNING: Carrasco walked Asdrubal Cabrera to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning. His pitch count is up to 113. Carrasco plunked pinch-hitter Brandon Guyer with his very next delivery.

Men on first and second, no outs. Pitch count: 114.

Grady Sizemore grounded to short for the first out. Carrasco then whiffed Kevin Kiermaier for the second out. This may happen.

Welp. Joey Butler singled to right-center with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Back to your regularly scheduled HBT programming.

****************

We have some history in the works Wednesday night in Tampa Bay.

Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco has no-hit the Rays through eight innings with a pitch count of 106. His only real blemish on the evening was a seventh-inning walk of Tampa Bay’s Joey Butler.

We’ll provide updates as Carrasco tries to finish this thing off. Cleveland has an 8-0 lead.
