The Cleveland Indians picked up their 3rd win in a row over the Tampa Bay Rays. Carlos Carrasco pitched the best game of his career for the Tribe. He fell just one strike short of a no-hitter. Carrasco picked up his 10th win of the season.
He made it to the last batter in the 9th inning with the no-hitter. He had 2 strikes on Tampa Bays Joey Butler. That's when Butler hit a fly ball over the head of Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis to spoil the no-hitter.
Kipnis did everything he could to try to catch the ball. He jumped as high as he could, but in the end he came up a bit short. Kipnis posted a picture with a comment saying he wished he was a little taller.
Carrasco was all smiles following the game. He was incredible, and his performance this season is also incredible. He has 10 wins, and there is still a lot of baseball to be played by the Indians.
The Cleveland Indians have now taken 3 in a row, from the Tampa Bay Rays. The Indians won by a score of 8-1 and they face the Rays today at noon. Kluber gets the start in game-4. He has a lot to live up to following the performance Carrasco had last night.
Carrasco struck out 13 batters in the game.
