CLEVELAND -- Carlos Carrasco wasnt about to let a bug in his eye get in the way of winning a game.Carrasco overcame the bug -- followed by a home run one batter later -- and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Houston Astros 6-5 on Wednesday night.The game-time temperature was 87 degrees, causing swarms of midges to journey from Lake Erie to the muggy ballpark. A bug flew into Carrascos left eye as he threw a pitch to Yuli Gurriel in the fourth inning.That was weird, he said. I tried to throw a curveball and maybe threw it 20 feet.Carrasco bent over and a trainer made a brief visit to the mound. Gurriel singled on the next pitch and Colby Rasmus hit the first pitch into the seats in right field, giving Houston a 3-2 lead.It doesnt feel good, Carrasco said of the bug attack. Thats the first time this has happened to me but I had to come back and get people out.Carrasco (11-7) regrouped after the homer, allowing four runs in 7 1/3 innings.Players in the field and batters box spent the night slapping away the bugs.They were everywhere, Indians manager Terry Francona said. In the dugout its hard to sense it but when you get on the field, man, they were all over the place.Mike Napolis two-run homer off Doug Fister (12-11) gave Cleveland a 4-3 lead in the fifth. Pinch-hitter Brandon Guyer added a two-run double in the inning and the Indians extended their lead over Detroit to 5 1/2 games in the AL Central.Cody Allen gave up a leadoff single in the ninth, but struck out the next three batters, including Jose Altuve -- the ALs leading hitter -- to earn his 25th save.Those are situations you dont like them all the time but in hindsight you enjoy them, Allen said. Its competition at its best -- game on the line. Hes one of the best hitters in the game.The loss cost Houston a chance to gain ground in the AL wild card race. The Astros still trail Baltimore by two games.Houston still led by a run when Francisco Lindor singled to start the fifth. Napoli hit his 31st homer -- a 433-foot blast three-quarters of the way up the bleachers in left field.Guyer, batting for Tyler Naquin, doubled in two more runs off Kevin Chapman.The whole fifth inning was a problem for us, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. We needed some guys to get some outs, but I didnt have a lot of guys available (out of the bullpen).Gurriel hit his first major league home run -- a two-run blast off Andrew Miller in the eighth.Lindor was 3 for 4 for his 23rd three-hit game, a major league high. Lonnie Chisenhall had three hits and an RBI for Cleveland.FIFTH SPOT UPDATEMike Clevinger will start for the Indians in Minnesota on Saturday.
