Carrasco strikes out six, Indians win again

MESA, Ariz. -- Edwin Jackson allowed three runs and four hits in three innings for the Cubs while Carlos Carrasco struck out six of his 12 batters in leading the Cleveland Indians over a Chicago split-squad 7-2 Friday.

Jackson, coming off a subpar first year of a $52 million, four-year contract, hit two batters and struck out two.

Mike Aviles hit a first-inning homer, giving the Indians a quick 2-0 lead after Nyjer Morgan opened the game with a single off Jackson. Morgan is batting .556 in spring training.

Indians reserve outfielder Ryan Raburn left in the third inning with a bruised left knee and bloody lip after running into the right-field wall chasing Kris Bryant's two-run homer in the second. The Indians said the injury is not expected to be serious.
