Carrasco, Surging Indians Blank Orioles 6-0

CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Carrasco shut out AL East-leading Baltimore on three hits over seven innings, lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 6-0 win over the Orioles on Saturday night.

Carlos Santana hit a three-run homer in the first off Ubaldo Jimenez (4-9) and Michael Brantley added a two-run shot in the fifth as the hot-and-cold Indians won for the fifth time in six games. Jimenez, who pitched the Indians to the postseason in 2013, lost to his former teammates for the second time this season.

Carrasco (5-4) got two inning-ending double plays to avoid early trouble and then retired 15 straight after giving up a leadoff double in the third.

The Orioles have lost consecutive games for the first time since June 28-29.
