Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Carlos Carrasco tossed his first career shutout as the Cleveland Indians blanked the Houston Astros, 2-0, in the third test of a four-game set.

Carrasco (8-5) struck out 12, scattered two hits and walked one for the Indians, who have won back-to-back games on the heels of a four-game losing streak.

"He just pitched with so much confidence and attacked the entire night," Indians manager Terry Francona said of Carrasco.

Yan Gomes went 2-for-4 and drove in both runs in the triumph.
