  • CHICAGO (AP) — Carlos Carrasco and Cleveland’s deep lineup combined for a successful Sunday in Chicago.The bullpen almost gave it away.Carrasco struck out nine in seven innings Jeimer Candelario Jersey , and the Indians held off the White Sox for a 9-7 win.AL Central-leading Cleveland had a 9-1 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth, and almost blew it. Run-scoring singles by Tim Anderson and Kevan Smith trimmed the Indians’ lead to 9-5 in the ninth before manager Terry Francona replaced Dan Otero with Cody Allen.Adam Engel greeted the closer with a two-run triple before Allen struck out Nicky Delmonico and Yolmer Sanchez for his 23rd save in 26 chances.“It was nice to see Cody come in and put it out because that would have been a rough plane ride getting on there,” Francona said.Carrasco (14-6) allowed one run and three hits. He retired his final 16 batters.“For whatever reason, he doesn’t have rust when he comes back,” Francona said about Carrasco, who spent nearly three weeks on the disabled list for a right elbow contusion. “Now we can use it to our advantage because he has less innings than he normally would. The tank looks like it’s full and it’s the middle of August.”Melky Cabrera hit a three-run homer against one of his former teams, helping the Indians take two of three in the series. Jason Kipnis and Yandy Diaz, who was called up to replace injured slugger Edwin Encarnacion, had three hits apiece.Engel finished with three hits and three RBIs, including a solo drive in the eighth. He added another outstanding catch to his resume, robbing Yonder Alonso of a potential three-run homer with a leaping grab in center in the top half of the eighth.He made two similar plays against the New York Yankees in Chicago’s previous series.“The chances of there being three balls in one week that you get an opportunity to go up and bring back I feel like are slim,” Engel said. “It’s cool that it happened.”The Indians supported Carrasco with four runs in the first and two more in the second.Alonso hit a two-out RBI single before Cabrera hit a drive to right for a 4-0 lead. Kipnis and Diaz hit RBI singles in the second against Dylan Covey (4-9).“That’s been good the whole year,” Carrasco said about the offense.The White Sox scored their lone run off Carrasco on Daniel Palka’s groundout in the first. Carrasco has won six of his last eight starts.Covey allowed six runs and seven hits in just 2 2/3 innings. He is 1-8 with an 8.94 ERA in his last 10 starts.The Indians improved to 37-17 against the AL Central.The White Sox have lost five of six.ON THE MOVEEncarnacion was placed on the 10-day disabled list. He has a right hand contusion and some swelling in his left biceps.Diaz was promoted from the minors. The infielder hit .293 in 98 games at Triple-A Columbus.PATIENCEWhite Sox manager Rick Renteria said Covey, who has a 6.06 ERA, will remain in the rotation.“We need him to gain more experience in that starter’s role, to give him a chance and develop that skill set ,” Renteria said.TRAINER’S ROOMIndians: X-rays were negative for RHP Trevor Bauer (right ankle), who was sore after being struck by a line drive in his start Saturday. Francona said he doubts the soreness would cause Bauer to miss his next start. “He’s got an extra day anyway,” Francona said. … RHP Corey Kluber (illness) was feeling better after he was sent back to the hotel on Saturday, Francona said. Kluber is expected to make his scheduled start Tuesday in Cincinnati.UP NEXTIndians: RHP Mike Clevinger (7-7, 3.38 ERA) is scheduled to face Reds RHP Homer Bailey (1-9, 6.19 ERA) on Monday in the opener of a three-game series.White Sox: RHP Reynaldo Lopez (4-9, 4.30 ERA) is set to start the opener of a three-game series at Detroit on Monday. RHP Artie Lewicki (0-2, 4.76 ERA) pitches for the Tigers. ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves and their manager had plenty of reasons to be unhappy even after completing their first four-game sweep of the Miami Marlins since 2006.Seeing slugging rookie Ronald Acuna Jr., who had been on a home-run streak, hit by Jose Urena’s first pitch led to two melees on the field and more unrest in the clubhouse.Dansby Swanson filled the power void left by Acuna’s exit, hitting a two-run homer that led the Braves to a 5-2 win over Miami on Wednesday night.Acuna, who had hit leadoff homers in the last three games and homered in five straight games overall, didn’t get a chance to extend the streak. Urena plunked him on the left elbow with a fastball.The Braves said X-rays on the elbow were negative and results of further tests would be announced on Thursday.Benches and bullpens for both teams emptied onto the field twice after the pitch. No punches were thrown. Urena and Braves manager Brian Snitker were ejected.“He’s been swinging the ball incredibly well, obviously,” Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said of Acuna. “It just makes no sense. It was just completely classless on Jose Urena’s part.”Snitker, Freeman and other Braves players believe Urena intended to hit Acuna. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said the umpires also believed Urena tried to hit the Braves rookie Justin Verlander Jersey , but Mattingly was upset his pitcher was not ejected until Snitker came on the field for the second time.“If you think he’s done it on purpose, then throw him out right away,” Mattingly said.Urena said he was only trying to throw the pitch inside.“I made the bad pitch,” Urena said. “I missed my spot inside on the corner the way I wanted to start with him. I tried to get inside to move him.”Paul Nauert, the third-base umpire and crew chief, said the decision to eject Urena was delayed because “we wanted to make sure as a crew we were all on the same page. … When we got together as a crew, it was decided by the crew that yes, he should have been ejected. So that’s what we did.”An angry Snitker was near the front of the line of Braves players charging out of the dugout toward the mound. His emotions started to rise again following the game.“I’m not sure I’ve ever felt like that in a baseball uniform,” Snitker said, adding Acuna “didn’t deserve that. … I’ve had three hours to calm down and all of a sudden I’m not real good right now.”Acuna became the 11th batter to be hit by a pitch from Urena this season, tied for the most in the National League.Acuna left the game in the second inning. He took his position in left field and then walked off the field. Snitker said Acuna had cramping in his forearm when he left the game.Because he was forced from the game after being hit by the pitch in his only plate appearance, Acuna will be eligible to continue his three-game streak of leadoff homers in his next game.Kevin Gausman (7-9) allowed two runs in six innings. A.J. Minter pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save in 12 opportunities.Elieser Hernandez, who replaced Urena, allowed two hits in three scoreless innings.The Braves trailed 2-0 before scoring three runs off left-hander Jarlin Garcia (1-2) in the fourth. Charlie Culberson, who doubled, scored from third on Ender Inciarte’s grounder to first base. After Tyler Flowers walked Houston Astros Jersey , Swanson cleared the center field wall with his 10th homer.Culberson had three hits, including two doubles. Inciarte, who had a run-scoring single in the sixth, drove in two runs.Starlin Castro led off Miami’s fourth with his 10th homer into the seats in right field.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves LHP Max Fried, on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain, will make a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday — “quicker than we originally thought,” Snitker said. … LHP Sam Freeman (left shoulder inflammation) threw a scoreless inning for Gwinnett on Tuesday and is scheduled to throw again on Thursday.STREAKINGThe NL East-leading Braves remained two games ahead of Philadelphia. They have won five straight after completing their first four-game sweep of the Marlins since May 15-18, 2006 at Turner Field.The last-place Marlins have lost five straight and eight of nine.BIG LEAGUE DEBUTMiami left fielder Austin Dean, a 2012 fourth-round draft pick called up from Triple-A New Orleans before the game, was held without a hit in his major league debut.UP NEXTMarlins: Miami, off Thursday, opens a weekend series at slumping Washington on Friday night. RHP Dan Straily (4-5. 4.42) has a 3.86 ERA in two starts against the Nationals this season.Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (8-7, 4.33) will look to continue his success against the Rockies in Thursday night’s opener of a four-game series. Teheran is 5-1 with a 2.21 ERA in nine career starts against Colorado.
