CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Carrasco’s stretch of dominant pitching has come at a perfect time for the Cleveland Indians.Carrasco pitched seven scoreless innings and moved into a tie for the AL lead with his 15th win Roger Clemens Jersey , Jose Ramirez hit his 37th home run and Cleveland beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 on Friday night.Carrasco (15-6) allowed three hits, struck out six and retired his final 10 hitters. The right-hander is tied with teammate Corey Kluber, New York’s Luis Severino and Boston’s Rick Porcello for most wins in the league.“Any time you send a guy out there and you feel like you’ve got a good chance to win, that’s a good feeling,” Indians manager Terry Francona said.Carrasco’s hot streak takes on more significance since fellow starter Trevor Bauer will miss four to six weeks with a stress fracture in his right leg. He was hit by a line drive last week.Carrasco has been nearly unbeatable since coming off the disabled list last month after being hit on the elbow by a line drive on June 16. He’s 7-1 in his last nine appearances, allowing 10 earned runs with 64 strikeouts in 52 innings.“Nobody wants to go on the DL, but I’m glad I went on the DL to fix some little things,” Carrasco said. “That’s what it takes sometimes, two or three weeks. At this point I feel fine. I can’t wait to start pitching every five days.”Ramirez’s first-inning homer tied him with Boston’s J.D. Martinez, who entered Friday with the major league lead.Cleveland has won six straight and is a season-high 19 games over .500 (70-51).Orioles manager Buck Showalter is impressed with how the Indians are playing.“That’s why they are in first place,” he said. “They are one of the best clubs in baseball and they got a great guy in Terry who knows how to use the weapons.”Rookie right-hander David Hess (2-7) allowed two runs in six innings for the Orioles. Trey Mancinci’s RBI single in the eighth scored the only run for Baltimore, which has lost 11 of 13.Cody Allen walked Renato Nunez with one out in the ninth. Pinch-runner Craig Gentry stole second before Tim Beckham flied out. Allen struck Joey Rickard for his 24th save in 27 chances.“That’s what you call holding on for dear life,” Francona said.Both starters worked out of bases-loaded jams. Carrasco struck out Rickard to finish the fourth while Hess struck out Yonder Alonso to end the third.“That is something that gives you confidence not only to throw that pitch, but for that pitch to be called to begin with Justin Smoak Jersey ,” Hess said. “That was a big spot.”Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was placed on the bereavement list Friday and is expected to rejoin the team Monday in Toronto.HALL OF FAMERSThe Indians will honor Hall of Famer Jim Thome on Saturday in a pregame ceremony during which they are expected to retire his No. 25.The team wouldn’t offer confirmation, but a tarp is covering the box in the upper deck in right field between the retired numbers of Indians players who are also in the Hall of Fame — Bob Lemon (No. 21) and Larry Doby (No. 14).Thome was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame last month and holds the franchise record with 337 home runs.Prior to Friday’s game, the Indians honored Sheldon Ocker, the 2018 winner of the J.G. Taylor Spink Award. Ocker covered the team for 33 years for the Akron Beacon Journal.MARTIN UPDATEFrancona and several Indians players visited outfielder Leonys Martin at the Cleveland Clinic on Thursday. Martin is recovering from a life-threatening bacterial infection and has been hospitalized for over a week.“He was sitting up in a chair,” Francona said. “He looked really good. And he wanted everybody to know he appreciates all the thoughts and everything. It was really uplifting to see him like that.”TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: Gentry (left rib fracture) was activated from the 10-day disabled list before the game.Indians: Francona said it’s questionable if DH Edwin Encarnacion (right hand contusion) will come off the 10-day DL on Wednesday, the first day he’s eligible. Encarnacion is also dealing with a strained left biceps.UP NEXTOrioles RHP Alex Cobb (3-15, 5.31) has allowed three earned in 20 innings over his last three starts and will pitch Saturday. RHP Adam Plutko (4-2, 4.75) will be called up from Triple-A Columbus. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even when the Cardinals run into each other, they can’t lose.Yadier Molina and Marcell Ozuna slugged two-run homers and St. Louis overcame a lack of communication in the outfield to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Tuesday night.The Cardinals improved to a major league-best 16-4 in August and moved atop the NL wild-card standings by a half-game over Milwaukee.They also climbed to 2 ½ games back of the NL Central-leading Cubs.“We’re cooking on all cylinders right now,” winning pitcher Luke Weaver (7-11) said. “We feel very confident about where we’re at. We’re kind of riding the wave right now and just bouncing off each other, keeping that positivity going.”The Cardinals have homered in 14 straight games. They won the opener 5-3 on consecutive ninth-inning homers by Jedd Gyorko and Matt Carpenter. This victory clinched their eighth consecutive series, equaling their longest streak since April 10-May 7, 2015.Jose Martinez tied it with an RBI single in the third. Molina followed with a two-run shot to right center to make it 3-1, snapping an 0-for-17 skid and leaving him one hit shy of his 11th straight season with 100 or more.With two outs in the seventh http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-marco-estrada-jersey , Daniel Hudson hit Tyler O’Neill, setting the stage for Ozuna’s two-run homer that extended the Cardinals’ lead to 5-1.The Dodgers’ runs came in the second when Daniel Poncedeleon hit Yasiel Puig with the bases loaded and in the seventh on Manny Machado’s 29th homer.The Dodgers have stranded 25 runners in the first two games of the series.“We should definitely be playing better baseball,” Machado said. “Eventually things will turn around. Once we turn that corner, I don’t think anyone is going to hold us back.”For now, though, the Dodgers dropped 3 1/2 games behind the NL West-leading Diamondbacks, the farthest Los Angeles has been out of first place since July 1. The Dodgers fell to 32-32 at home.“I’m as frustrated as the guys in there are,” manager Dave Roberts said. “It doesn’t feel good right now.”In his second major league start, Poncedeleon allowed one run and five hits in four innings. He struck out a career-high eight and walked one pitching not far from his hometown of Anaheim. Cardinals reliever Carlos Martinez got hit in the chest by a comebacker from Joc Pederson in the eighth. Martinez was knocked down and writhed on the ground as his teammates and a trainer ran to him. He soon got up and walked off under his own power as the inning ended.Martinez later said he had trouble breathing.“He was alert, aware,” Shildt said. “It was more of his sternum area which made it super scary.”Defensively, the Cardinals had a series of outfield miscues, all of them involving right fielder O’Neill.He collided with second baseman Kolten Wong as they chased Yasmani Grandal’s single in the second. On the next play, O’Neill dived and badly missed a single by Chris Taylor that loaded the bases for the Dodgers.“It’s a loud stadium but the reality is we need to be able to communicate better and not have issues where we’re running into each other Aaron Sanchez Jersey ,” Shildt said.Also in the second, center fielder Harrison Bader clearly called for a high fly ball hit by Pederson, but O’Neill came charging in with his glove in the air. Bader still managed to make the catch.In the fifth, Bader caught Justin Turner’s long fly to right center but came dangerously close to colliding with O’Neill, who had his hands on his hips looking at Bader.“They’re hungry and aggressive going after the ball. Definitely want that,” Shildt said. “They’ll iron it out.”Weaver allowed one run and three hits in 2 1/3 innings of relief.Bud Norris pitched the ninth for his 26th save.Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-1) gave up three runs and four hits in four innings, struck out four and walked one.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: Activated RHP Carlos Martinez (right shoulder strain) from DL and optioned INF Patrick Wisdom to Triple-A Memphis. … Transferred OF Dexter Fowler to 60-day DL.Dodgers: RHP JT Chargois went on the DL with nerve irritation. He experienced tingling in his fingers while tossing six pitches in the fifth inning a night earlier. … RHP Ross Stripling will throw a simulated game Friday.KOLTEN LOOKS GOLDEN Wong made a stellar play for the first out of the ninth inning. The second baseman laid out in shallow center field for Turner’s grounder, then pushed his upper body off the ground just long enough to wing the ball to first base before falling back to the outfield grass.“That’s Gold Glove-caliber,” Shildt said.END OF STREAKTurner was hitless in five at-bats, ending his major league-leading 14-game hitting streak. During the run, he hit .464 with eight RBIs and three homers.UP NEXTLHP Jack Flaherty (7-6, 3.05 ERA) starts the series finale for the Cardinals. Rookie RHP Walker Buehler (6-4, 3.19) goes for the Dodgers.____
