The Indians Starting Rotation is on Fire, Is it Enough to Get Them to the World Series?

2. Carlos Carrasco

The Indians starter that no one seems to talk about has quietly put together a dominant 2018, and he right now boasts a 15-6 mark with a 3.33 ERA.

He’s lost one game since June 16th, and that took place on a night when there was a two-plus hour rain delay in which he gave up a three-run homer to Mitch Garver of the Twins in a 3-2 loss.

Other than that game, he’s been stellar, going seven or more inning in 10 of his 24 starts thus far this season.

Consider this – Carrasco has allowed seven earned runs in his last eight starts – three of them on the one pitch to Garver in his loss on August 7th.

In four of those starts he’s not allowed a run, and in two other of the starts he’s allowed just one run. He might just be the key to how this postseason run goes for the Tribe.
