Drew Smyly gave up two runs in each of the first two innings on Friday night and the Phillies had no chance to make up such a large early deficit against Shane Bieber. They fell in the opener, 5–2.
Bieber pitched into the eighth, gave up seven hits, two earned runs on a Maikel Franco double, and struck out seven without walking a batter.
Carlos Carrasco took the ball from him with an out in the eighth, walked the first batter he faced and then proceeded to retire the next five to earn himself just the second save of his career and first this season.
He looks more and more comfortable not only on the mound after returning from battling Leukemia but as a late-inning reliever.
Brad Hand was available to pitch after throwing a productive bullpen session but Terry Francona didn’t go that way. With Hand’s status still uncertain, Carrasco may have to be the guy in the late innings for Cleveland down the stretch.
This final sprint in the AL Wild Card is worthy of all the drama in the final week of the regular season.
The Rays played through injuries to almost their entire starting rotation and are now nearly fully healthy. The Indians have steadied after the initial shock of losing Jose Ramirez. Now they’re picking up momentum again with Yasiel Puig and Oscar Mercado carrying the offense.
The young third baseman from Taiwan, Yu Chang, also made a terrific defensive play on Friday night and has continued to be a rock, if one that doesn’t produce much offensively, in Ramirez’s place. And apparently Ramirez is making progress. He won’t return this week but if the Indians can beat out the Rays and then advance to the Divisional Series, Ramirez could become a play.
Steady as ever, Adam Plutko has given up exactly two earned runs in each of his last three starts.
