Indians take home opener from White Sox in extra innings


Coming off a three game sweep at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland righted their early season slide with a 10-inning victory over the visiting Chicago White Sox.

Carlos Carassco returned to the mound for the second time this season. He followed up his first start since injuring his hand last season with a keen seven-inning seven strike out performance.

The righty surrendered just one run on four hits in his 2017 Progressive Field debut.

It took a scoreless effort from the bullpen combined with a continued offensive output from Fransico Lindor to seal the win in the 10th.

The rising star shortstop homered for the fourth time this season when he took Jake Shields deep in the first inning.

It was then Lindor who crossed the plate on a Michael Brantley double in the bottom of the 10th.

Bryan Shaw picked up his first win of the season after Cody Allen and Andrew Miller tossed scoreless innings.

The Indians take on Chicago again tonight. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 p.m.
