Toronto triumphant in Encarnacion's return

Cleveland Indians vs Toronto Blue Jays

Carlos Carrasco didn't shake off more than two or three pitch calls from catcher Yan Gomes on Tuesday night.

Carrasco threw 97 pitches, 64 (66 percent) for strikes.

His potential return would bump Mike Bolsinger - the ninth different starter the Blue Jays have used this year in comparison to just seven all of last season - who allowed two runs on three hits and four walks over 5.2 solid innings in the loss to Cleveland.

"He's shown signs, for sure", Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He's obviously pitching with a lot of confidence and he should".

Verlander (3-2) allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks and struck out seven in seven innings.

Carrasco struck out seven and did not give up a walk for the Indians, who evened the three-game series at one game apiece.

"That's the Cookie that we know", Gomes said. It was also just the second time all season that Toronto has won consecutive games.

"Same as always, go catch the ball", Pillar said.

The Blue Jays were expected to activate right-hander Mike Bolsinger from the Bisons for Tuesday's start against the Indians.

Andrew Miller replaced Carrasco and pitched a flawless eighth.

Tuesday's ruling was a surprising outcome as prosecutors had requested a one-year jail term suspended for two years. Purnama denied wrongdoing, though he apologized for the comments made to residents in an outlying Jakarta district.

Lonnie Chisenhall reached base three times for the Indians, who scored more than three runs for the first time since a 12-4 win over Seattle on April 30. "We're surviving on this trip". He grounded out twice before leaving, and aggravated the muscle while running to first in his second at-bat.

"I'm not concerned so far", Morales said through team translator, Josue Peley.

Already without regulars Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki, Toronto put catcher Russell Martin on the 10-day disabled list before the game because of nerve irritation in his left shoulder. For Toronto he hit 289 home runs and 679 RBI.

"Bullpens go in cycles just like everything else, but our guys are starting to step up and establish themselves", Gibbons said.

Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Ramirez opened the second with walks.

After getting right fielder Jose Bautista to ground into a 5-4-3 double play to end the bottom half of the first inning, he got two strikeouts each in the second, third and fourth frames to keep the Blue Jays off of the scoreboard.

It also made a victor of reliever Ryan Tepera, who took over from Aaron Loup in the sixth.

Gomes is batting.378 (14 for 37) in his past 14 games. Bolsinger is making his first start of the season and first start for the Jays. The last time he went longer between hits was an 0-for-25 skid from June 22 to July 1, 2015. LF Michael Brantley (strained right ankle) is listed as day-to-day after he was injured Sunday in Kansas City. Latos was designated for assignment last week, when the Blue Jays claimed Cesar Valdez off waivers from the Oakland Athletics.

The Indians will send Danny Salazar (2-3, 4.28) to the mound Wednesday night to face Toronto left-hander Francisco Liriano (2-2, 4.44) at 7:07.

Eric Thames hit his 13th home run, moving into a tie with Aaron Judge and Ryan Zimmerman for the major league lead.
