Astros-Indians Preview

(AP) -- The Cleveland Indians' decision to move Carlos Carrasco back to the starting rotation has already paid off in a big way.

Carrasco carries a 12-inning scoreless streak into Friday night's series opener against the Houston Astros, who visit Cleveland looking to avoid a seventh consecutive loss in the series.

Carrasco (5-4, 3.27 ERA) has yet to allow a run since rejoining the rotation, yielding five hits and no walks in winning both his starts. After a 4-1 victory at Yankee Stadium on Aug. 10, the right-hander threw seven innings of three-hit ball to beat Baltimore 6-0 on Saturday.
