Carrasco helps Indians beat White Sox 3-2

CHICAGO – Carlos Carrasco pitched into the seventh inning and Michael Bourn had two triples among his three hits, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley each singled in a run for the Indians, who have won four of five and 11 of 16 overall to remain in the hunt for an AL wild card.

Alexei Ramirez had two hits for the White Sox, and John Danks (9-9) pitched six solid innings.

Carrasco (6-4) improved to 3-0 with a sparkling 0.73 ERA in four starts since he returned to the rotation. The right-hander also began the year as a starter, but then lost three of his first four outings.

He struck out seven in 6 2-3 innings while holding the White Sox to one run and four hits.

Cleveland grabbed the lead for good in the sixth. Jose Ramirez led off with a single and stole second. He then advanced to third on a groundout and scored on Kipnis’ base hit, giving the Indians a 2-1 advantage.

Brantley added an RBI single in the seventh.

Danks allowed two runs and five hits while falling to 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA in five August starts.
