Jose Ramirez belted his sixth home run of the season on Friday, accounting for all of the Tribe's offense in a loss to the Mariners.
His fourth inning shot off of Ariel Miranda pulled the Indians to within a run at 2-1, but that was as close as they would get. Ramirez finished the night 1-for-4 with three strikeouts. He has been one of the few bright spots for the Cleveland offense this season, hitting .337/.394/.614 with six homers and 19 RBI.
Carlos Carrasco logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Mariners, allowing three runs on six hits over eight innings.
The right-hander punched out seven on the night and didn't walk a batter. All of the damage against him was done via the long ball, with Robinson Cano blasting a two-run homer in the fourth inning and Ben Gamel adding a solo shot in the sixth. With the loss, Carrasco now sits at 2-2 on the season with a stellar 2.04 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the Tigers his next time out on Wednesday in Detroit.
Logan Morrison blasted a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning on Friday, powering the Rays to a 7-4 victory over the Blue Jays.
The Rays entered the eighth inning trailing 3-1 before their bats awoke. Corey Dickerson and Evan Longoria each swatted solo homers to tie the game before Morrison crushed a Dominic Leone offering over the center field wall for the go-ahead blast. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .243/.341/.473 with five long balls and 14 RBI on the season.
Evan Longoria belted a game-tying solo homer in the eighth inning against the Blue Jays on Friday.
Corey Dickerson had homered earlier in the inning to pull the Rays within a run. Longoria then greeted reliever Jason Grilli with his fourth home run of the season, tying the game at 3-3. It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night, but played a pivotal role in the Rays' victory. Longoria is now hitting .223/.315/.409 with four homers and 13 RBI on the season.
Corey Dickerson clubbed his sixth home run of the season on Friday as the Rays came from behind to beat the Blue Jays in Toronto.
The Rays entered the eighth inning trailing 3-1 before Dickerson took Marcus Stroman deep to halve the deficit. He also doubled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. While he isn't a conventional leadoff man, he has filled the role admirably against right-handed pitching and is now hitting .329/.368/.659 with six homers and 10 RBI on the season.
