Carlos Carrasco pitched 8 and one third strong innings as the Cleveland
Indians defeated the Baltimore Orioles by the score of 5 to 2 at Progressive
Field.
 
Cleveland brought 2 runs across the plate in the bottom of the 5th inning.
The biggest moment was provided by Mike Napoli who made the Cleveland fans a
happy lot when he blasted a two-run home run.  Cleveland out-hit Baltimore
for the game, 11 hits to 3.  
 
The win was credited to Carrasco(4-2) who went 8 and 1/3 innings allowing 2
runs. Cody Allen recorded the save, his 6th.  Chris Tillman(2-2) took the
loss.  He was hit hard and gave up 9 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings.  

Game 5 ALCS. Cleveland at Baltimore

At Camden Yards, the Baltimore fans witnessed a great pitcher’s duel. Danny
Salazar(1-2) finally bested his Baltimore opposite, Kevin Gausman(2-2), by
the score of 2 to 1.

In the top of the 2nd inning Cleveland went on top for good scoring one runner
on 2 base hits. Baltimore had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

Cody Allen got the save, his 5th. Gausman was the losing pitcher. ‘We just
made a lot of mistakes, mostly mental,’ Buck Showalter said. ‘It’s bad
enough when the other team beats you, but when you start beating yourselves,
that’s really bad.’
