Tribe Is Blown Out Again, But Carlos Santana Plays A Flawless First Base

Well there was good news among another drubbing administered to the Tribe pitching staff today when catcher Carlos Santana, on the mend after knee surgery last August, played a perfect first base, handling nine chances, as well as doubling and scoring a run in a 9-2 San Diego Padres’ victory.

The loss, which dropped Cleveland to 4-7 on the spring, was a combination of bad pitching and anemic hitting, as the Indians managed just three hits, and Carlos Carrasco gave up two runs in three innings, David Huff gave up four in two innings, and Zach McAllister surrendered three in two frames.

The only Tribe hurlers unscathed were Zach Putnam and Joe Smith, who each went a scoreless inning. San Diego pounded homers on consecutive Carrasco pitches in the second, and San Diego never looked back, adding to pitching woes that have now totaled 41 runs surrendered in the last three games.

The Indians take on the Chicago Cubs tomorrow afternoon.
