The Indians took two batters to equal their total of hits last night against Dan Haren, and took three batters to do what they could not do against Haren — score a run.
Asdrubal Cabrera tripled with one out in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Shin-Soo Choo, and so far Carlos Carrasco has made it stand up, as the Tribe leads the Los Angeles Angels 1-0 after three innings in Anaheim.
The Indians have totaled two hits thus far against Ervin Santana, while the Angels have a single base hit against Carrasco, who has walked one and fanned three on 38 pitches thus far. The free pass was immediately erased on a third-inning double play.
This third and final game of the series will determine the series’ winner, as the teams have split the first two games, both of which were shutouts. The Tribe won 4-0 on Monday night, and the Angels came back last night to win 2-0.
Cleveland will head home after this game, and after a day off tomorrow, will face Baltimore on Friday evening.
