Notes: The Indians try to hold off a series sweep for Easter. And it's a big day for Carrasco. 

The Indians have seemed intent to give him a chance to figure things out at the major league level, but if he continues to struggle and Bauer continues to pitch as well as he has at Triple-A Columbus, that leash might be getting shorter. Today is a big chance for him to show he's taking strides in the right direction. 

Yesterday Carrasco talked about the need to pitch deeper into games. So we'll see how long he can last today. 

And looking at each pitcher's ERA, today might be a 9-7 type of day. But figuring it's baseball, it'll probably be 2-0.
