Carlos Santana got the scoring going with a solo home run in the first inning to the the Tribe the early lead. Adam Plutko started but took the no decision after working 4.1 innings, giving up two earned runs on six hits. Carlos Carrasco would come on and work 1.2 innings and would pick up the win after not giving up a hit to improve his season record to 5-7.
