For an American League pitcher in a National League ballpark, this was a near perfect afternoon for Carlos Carrasco. In his 2nd complete game effort this season and 10th in his career, Carrasco struck out 14 and got his first career RBI hit.
Tyler Naquin opened the game in the fourth with a three-run homer to right field off starter Junior Guerra. This was set up by Jose Ramirez's double and Michael Brantley's single.
Francisco Lindor's had a homer in the seventh off closer Corey Knebel. The Brewers avoided another shutout loss with a Travis Shaw RBI groundout in the seventh and Aguilar sacrifice fly in the ninth.
Indians flew home Wednesday afternoon and have Thursday off before they host the Kansas City Royals Friday night in game one of three. Trevor Bauer (2-3, 2.53 ERA) will start against Jhoulys Chacin (2-1, 4.08).
