Carrasco bounces back against the M's. They've only put up 9 runs in their past four losses and Swanson is making his debut tonight. I think they may have to lean on the pen while Carrasco gets command of his fastball and puts in a QS.50%

So complete surprise to me that Seattle has started so well this season but they are taking a risk with Swanson on the mound today. He's only pitched 2 innings the first went fine then the second he fell apart so there is no real advantage between the two pitchers today. I do think Seattle hangs on today. I don't see them losing two in a row to the Indians.

Carlos Carrasco, who has had his issues as of late, will go for the Tribe. He comes into Thursday's affair with a mark of 1-2 with a large ERA of 12.60.
His last time out Carrasco was roughed up, as he didn't get out of the first inning in a bad loss to the Royals on Friday night.
Overall Carrasco has allowed six runs in two of his three starts this year.

NEO Sports Insiders: Bieber and the Pen Help Indians to 4-2 Win Over the Mariners in Seattle
The Indians won their second straight road battle in T-Mobile Park on Tuesday night, topping the Mariners 4-2 to move to 10-7 on the young season.
Shane Bieber was impressive for five innings, allowing on run on four hits to earn his second win of the season with an ERA of 1.71.
The pen and offense did the rest, as the bullpen, who had a shaky Monday night in the team's win, was impressive. They allowed one run over the last four innings.
The offense again had its moments, coming up with some big hits including a huge one by lead-off hitter Leonys Martin to put the Tribe up 4-1.

SEATTLE -- The Seattle Mariners went on a five-game skid midway through last summer. They were 20 games over .500 at the beginning after the first game of that homestand. They never reached that mark again once it was over.
This season, five consecutive losses at home came much sooner.
The Seattle Times: Mariners can't break through against Cleveland, lose fifth consecutive game
Maybe they weren't completely forgotten, because there were reminders throughout the first 15 games of fun and runs. But when you are an offensive juggernaut, putting up seven runs a night, bashing a bunch of homers and pummeling starting pitchers, your blemishes and weaknesses are overcome and shrugged off in the success. It's even easier to do against bad teams, who don't have the experience or the talent to exploit or take advantage of them.
But this homestand against two perennial playoff teams has offered a revealing blue light of reality and regression.
Quality opposing pitching wouldn't allow the Mariners to simply roll up eight runs or more in every game and their defense and bullpen will always be looming liabilities against good teams or in close games.
