ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Rookie Giovanny Urshela hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning after teammate Carlos Carrasco pitched one-hit ball through the first nine, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Los Angeles Angels 2-0 on Tuesday night.
Lonnie Chisenhall led off the 12th with a single against Jose Alvarez (2-3), who was working his third inning of relief. Cam Bedrosian replaced him and got two outs before Urshela — the Indians’ No.9 hitter, drove a 1-0 pitch into the lower seats in the left field corner for his fourth h1omer after starting the road trip 1 for 20.
Zach McAllister pitched one inning for the victory and Cody Allen got three outs for his 22nd save in 24 chances.
Carrasco struck out seven, including Kole Calhoun with the potential winning run at second base to end the game. Last Thursday at Oakland, the 28-year-old right-hander from Venezuela pitched a two-hitter and retired his final 16 batters in a 3-1 victory.
