Carlos Carrasco allowed four earned runs, eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a win against Kansas City on Saturday.
Carrasco threw 70 of his 101 pitches for strikes and he uncorked a wild pitch in the non-quality start. Still, it was good enough to improve to 16-6 on the season, including 6-4 at home. He is actually much better on the road, going 10-2 with a 2.71 ERA across 16 outings with a stellar .206 opponent batting average. That's good news, since his next outing is scheduled for Friday in Seattle. Sep 16 - 8:14 PM

Carlos Carrasco struck out nine batters over six shutout innings Monday in the Indians' 11-0 win over the Tigers.

This marks the 19th straight victory for the Tribe, who are closing out the 2017 regular season in absolutely dominating fashion and making some history along the way. Carrasco cruised Monday versus Detroit, scattering seven hits and one walk over his six shutout frames. He probably could have worked a little deeper into the night, but Cleveland had a 9-0 lead by the end of the bottom of the sixth. The 30-year-old right-hander boasts a 15-6 record, 3.41 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 201/41 K/BB ratio in 179 1/3 innings this year. Up next for Carrasco is a start at home against the Royals.
Sep 11 - 10:33 PM

Carlos Carrasco missed a shutout by one batter on Wednesday, settling for a complete-game three-hitter in a 5-1 win over the White Sox.

Carrasco had allowed just two baserunners through 8 2/3 innings, both of which were subsequently eliminated on double plays. All he needed to do was make it through a .167-hitting Adam Engel for a shutout in which he would have faced the minimum 27 batters. Alas, Engel homered. Carrasco then retired Alen Hanson to finish it. He struck out nine and threw just 97 pitches in the gem. He's 14-6 with a 3.53 ERA.
Sep 6 - 11:59 PM

Carlos Carrasco was dominant in a no-decision against the Tigers on Friday, striking out eight over seven innings of one-run ball.

Carrasco scattered six hits on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI double by Jose Iglesias in the fifth inning. The right-hander will carry a 3.67 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the White Sox in Chicago.
Sep 1 - 6:50 PM

Carlos Carrasco tossed seven shutout innings Sunday in the Indians' 12-0 thrashing of the Royals.

Carrasco struck out eight, issued zero walks, and held the Royals to six hits -- one double, five singles -- while moving to 13-6 on the year with a 3.78 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 175/40 K/BB ratio in 157 1/3 innings. Kansas City didn't score a single run in the weekend series at Progressive Field, giving the Indians their first three-game shutout sweep of a team since 1956. Carrasco will get the Tigers on the road next.

Carlos Carrasco was popped for six runs over 6 2/3 frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Red Sox.

Aug 16 - 9:35 PM

Carlos Carrasco racked up 10 strikeouts and allowed just two base hits while firing eight scoreless innings in a 5-0 win over the Rays on Friday.

He took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning before it was broken up by a Logan Morrison single with two outs. He was totally dominant all night, surrendering just two singles and two walks. It took him 106 pitches to tame what is normally a potent Rays offense. This was the fourth time this year that Carrasco recorded double-figure strikeouts in a game. He has a superlative 152/38 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 138 2/3 innings. He will take an 11-5 record and 3.83 ERA into his next start Wednesday against the Twins.

Carrasco was cruising until the top of the sixth inning, when the visiting Yankees rattled off five runs on two singles, a double, a triple, two walks, and a sacrifice fly. Carrasco got only one run of support in the 8-1 defeat. He'll bring a 10-5 record and 4.06 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Rays.
Aug 6 - 4:15 PM

Carlos Carrasco lasted just 1 2/3 innings and gave up five runs Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Carrasco was spotted a five-run lead in this one, but after a relatively easy first, he just couldn't find his way out of the second, giving up two doubles and a homer. It was his shortest outing of the season. He went at least six innings in all five outings during a month of July that saw him amass a 3.31 ERA and a 39/6 K/BB ratio.
Aug 1 - 11:23 PM

Carlos Carrasco let in two runs over 6 1/3 innings and did not get a decision as his team beat the Angels 10-4 on Wednesday.

Carrasco pitched well all evening but was relieved before the Indians erupted for seven runs in the eighth inning. He struck out five batters without issuing a base-on-balls in the contest. He gave up six hits, including a solo homer by first baseman Luis Valbuena in the seventh inning. Carrasco's record holds at 10-4 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 20 starts. He has an elite 135/31 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 123 1/3 innings.

He struck out six and walked two in the contest. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Angels. Carrasco will carry a 3.62 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 130/31 K/BB ratio (117 innings) into that showdown.

Jul 15 - 1:19 AM

Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 Tigers while allowing two runs over seven innings in a win Friday.

It was a strange line for the 30-year-old, who wasn't spotless -- he gave up nine hits and a walk to go with his 11 strikeouts. Still, when you punch out that many, you've got some things working. The win, his fifth in a row heading into the break, improved Carrasco to 10-3 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 114/27 K/BB ratio over 104 2/3 innings overall this year.
