Carrasco shuts down Pirates

Published on June 19, 2011 by in Game Recaps

Final: Indians 5, Pirates 1

WP: Carlos Carrasco (7-3)
LP: Paul Maholm (3-8)

Unfortunately (or fortunately, maybe), I was unable to watch a single pitch of this game. I checked the score periodically on my phone throughout the night and things seemed to be going bad once I figured out the Pirates had not gotten a hit over the first 5 innings.

Paul Maholm gave up 4 runs over 6.1 innings and Tony Watson gave up his first run of his ML career. Jose Veras pitched a clean inning in relief, which is a good sign, though.

The Pirates’ only run came in the 6th inning on an RBI single by Lyle Overbay. The Bucs would only muster up 4 hits on the evening.

They will look to salvage game 3 of the series tomorrow afternoon. It would be really awesome if they could start hitting the ball.
