Encarnacion's 2 homers lead Indians past Reds 8-7

EDWIN ENCARNACION HIT TWO OF CLEVELAND'S FOUR HOMERS OFF ROOKIE AMIR GARRETT AND SCORED THE GO-AHEAD RUN ON A WILD PITCH TUESDAY NIGHT, LEADING THE INDIANS TO AN 8-7 VICTORY AND A SPLIT OF THEIR TWO-GAME SERIES WITH THE CINCINNATI REDS .

THE SERIES MOVES TO CLEVELAND FOR TWO GAMES. THE INDIANS HAVE WON SEVEN OF THE LAST EIGHT BETWEEN OHIO'S TEAMS.

CARLOS CARRASCO WAS IN LINE TO MOVE TO 5-0 ON THE ROAD THIS SEASON, BUT CLEVELAND'S BULLPEN HAD AN UNCHARACTERISTIC MELTDOWN IN THE SEVENTH. EUGENIO SUAREZ'S FIRST CAREER PINCH-HIT HOMER _ A THREE-RUN SHOT OFF BRYAN SHAW _ TIED IT AT 7.

ENCARNACION REACHED ON THIRD BASEMAN SCOOTER GENNETT'S ERROR IN THE EIGHTH AND CAME AROUND ON A WILD PITCH BY DREW STOREN (1-1).  CLEVELAND IMPROVED TO 18-0 WHEN LEADING AFTER SIX INNINGS.
