The home crowd's first look at pitching prospect Carlos Carrasco had plenty of bumps -- the rookie allowed five runs -- but the Tribe offense came up clutch several times in a losing cause. Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Brantley had big two-run doubles to erase the early hole; Travis Hafner and Matt LaPorta homered.
