(11 pitches)

Skinny: Reddick hit a hanger.  … Springer hit hard one-hopper to SS Francisco Lindor, who was unable to make backhanded pick. … Carrasco was fortunate that Altuve was off-balance and took what amounted to an emergency hack at a poorly located pitch. 2B Jose Ramirez tripped and fell back on the turn but managed an accurate relay to first.

4th inning (Indians, 1-0)

3B Alex Bregman (R) — 85 breaking pitch outside, grounder to pitcher.

1B Yuli Gurriel (R) — 95 fastball outer edge called strike; 95 fastball at belt, liner to deep right.

LF Marwin Gonzalez (S) — 95 fastball outside; 84 curve called strike; 90 changeup middle of zone, single to right.

SS Carlos Correa (R) — 95 fastball inside; 84 breaking pitch outer edge at thighs, grounder to second.

(8 pitches)

Skinny: Gomes sensed Bregman might try to ambush Carrasco and attack a first-pitch fastball, and Gomes was correct. … Gonzalez pounced on a hanger. … Carrasco made quality pitch to Correa, especially in 1-0 count.
