The Cleveland Indians with Carlos Carrasco on the mound, shut out the Chicago White Sox for the second night in a row. The Indians beat Chicago 7-0. Carrasco who was obviously inspired by the performance of Kluber in game-1, pitch 8 shut-out innings of baseball.

He gave up only 3 hits, struck out 8 and only walked 1 batter.

The Indians were off to a fast start in this game. Brantley made it to first base in the first inning and then stole second, to put himself into scoring position. It wouldn't have mattered much, not with the way Encarnación swung the bat. He hit a home-run to center field (438 feet), and just like that it was 2-0 in favor of the Indians.

The Tribe would score another run in the 5th off a Santana single to right that drove in Almonte, that would move Gomes to third, and Santana would get to second off the advancing throw.

The the kid came to bat in the 5th. Lindor hit a sacrifice fly to center that would score Gomes and move Santana to third. At this point in the game it was the Cleveland Indians 4 and the White Sox 0.

The Tribe picked up 2 more runs in the 7th off of a Michael Brantley home run that drove in Santana. After 7 it was all Indians offensively. They had a 6-0 lead.

Then in the 9th, just for good measure Ramírez homered to right (407 feet), and it was 7-0 Indians. The Tribe will take on the Chicago White Sox in the last game of this 3-game series looking to complete the sweep today at 2:10p.m.

With the win last night, the Indians move to 10-7 on the season. There is a ton of baseball left to be played, but I like what I am seeing from this Indians team thus far......
