Indians drub Cubs; Carrasco OK after liner to head
MESA, Ariz. – Indians manager Terry Francona was reluctant to allow starter Carlos Carrasco to remain in the game after he was hit in the head by a line drive.
"We made him pass every test there was," Francona said. "We quizzed him out on the mound and even after the inning we took him up into the clubhouse and really put him through a real good rundown of stuff. It got him pretty good, and we will follow up with him [Monday night] for sure."
Carrasco did persuade Francona to stay after Darnell McDonald's drive knocked him to his knees and he pitched three innings in the Indians' 13-5 win over the Cubs.
