The Cleveland Indians' powerful pitching is suddenly problematic.
Carlos Carrasco was pulled after four innings with an injured left leg and Miami quickly jumped on his replacement for three runs as the Marlins beat Cleveland 3-1 for their second road victory Tuesday night.
Carrasco, who was coming off a 12-strikeout performance in his previous outing, got hurt when he stumbled and fell while covering first base in the fourth inning. He stayed in for two more batters but was pulled after telling manager Terry Francona his leg tightened.
Francona said Carrasco was taken for a precautionary magnetic resonance imaging exam. The Indians are hoping it's nothing serious.
"He kind of bruised it. He fell on it, but he initially felt it in the back," Francona said. "So that's why the medical people felt like let's just rule everything out. Hopefully it's just being precautionary, but we do want to get him checked out."
The Indians are already missing starter Mike Clevinger, who is expected to be sidelined another two months because of a back strain. The loss of Carrasco, a 17-game winner last season, for any period would be another blow to the three-time defending AL Central champions, who are not hitting and counting on their pitching to carry them.
Cleveland is batting an AL-worst .210 and the Indians have gotten three or fewer hits four times this season.
