Custom Baseball Jerseys .Carrasco overcame the bug -- followed by a home run one batter later -- and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Houston Astros 6-5 on Wednesday night.The game-time temperature was 87 degrees, causing swarms of midges to journey from Lake Erie to the muggy ballpark. A bug flew into Carrascos left eye as he threw a pitch to Yuli Gurriel in the fourth inning.That was weird, he said. I tried to throw a curveball and maybe threw it 20 feet.Carrasco bent over and a trainer made a brief visit to the mound. Gurriel singled on the next pitch and Colby Rasmus hit the first pitch into the seats in right field, giving Houston a 3-2 lead.It doesnt feel good, Carrasco said of the bug attack.

Pinch-hitter Brandon Guyer added a two-run double in the inning and the Indians extended their lead over Detroit to 5 1/2 games in the AL Central.Cody Allen gave up a leadoff single in the ninth, but struck out the next three batters, including Jose Altuve -- the ALs leading hitter -- to earn his 25th save.Those are situations you dont like them all the time but in hindsight you enjoy them, Allen said. Its competition at its best -- game on the line. Hes one of the best hitters in the game.The loss cost Houston a chance to gain ground in the AL wild card race. The Astros still trail Baltimore by two games.Houston still led by a run when Francisco Lindor singled to start the fifth. Napoli hit his 31st homer -- a 433-foot blast three-quarters of the way up the bleachers in left field.Guyer, batting for Tyler Naquin, doubled in two more runs off Kevin Chapman.The whole fifth inning was a problem for us, Astros manager A.J.

The win extended Detroits lead over Houston to 1 1/2 games.It is easy to be confident when you have won six in a row, but weve always felt like this team was going to be in the race, said Justin Upton, who also homered for Detroit. This is a really good team, and were getting hot at the same time were getting healthy.Two days after scoring nine runs in the first two innings off Collin McHugh, the Tigers were all over Dallas Keuchel in the first. Seven of the first eight batters reached base, capped off by James McCanns grand slam to make it 6-0. Only Cameron Maybin getting thrown out on the bases kept the defending Cy Young winner from giving up more runs in the inning.A couple tough-luck plays kind of extended that inning, and then I elevated a pitch to McCann, Keuchel said. That was the difference maker.Keuchel (6-11) allowed seven runs and seven hits in five innings, walking three and striking out four.Mike Pelfrey (4-9) got the win, pitching five shutout innings and allowing four hits and a walk while striking out four. He has now allowed one or fewer runs in five of his last eight starts.Pelfrey, though, was forced out by tightness in his back, and was having an MRI after the game.The Astros loaded the bases in the third, but Pelfrey got out of the jam by retiring Carlos Correa on a broken-bat grounder to third. Houstoon had them loaded again in the seventh, but Bruce Rondon struck out Correa. Fake Nike Baseball Jerseys.

Gonzalez, who got hurt Friday night, is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Monday.Tigers: OF J.D. Martinez (elbow) went 2 for 5 for Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, and is now hitting .350 after four games of a rehab assignment. He still hasnt played the field, but the Tigers are hoping to have him back by weeks end.OLD FRIENDSMcCanns first-inning homer was the first grand slam of his career and the 15th home run.
