Carlos Carrasco followed up his 2010 debut with another impressive outing, allowing two earned runs and striking out six in six innings. He had trouble in first inning, loading the bases with two outs, but struck out Mike Napoli to end the threat. He wouldn't walk another batter in his final five innings of work. You can tell this time around that his poise on the mound has caught up to his stuff.
The Indians hitters, per usual, were held in check as well. Angels starter Dan Haren went seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits. The game was tied going to the top of ninth, and after two outs in the top of the ninth, the Indians pushed a run across on a Michael Brantley double and a Shin-Soo Choo broken-bat single. Chris Perez retired the Angels in the bottom of the inning in order to notch another save.
