Carrasco pitches Indians past Mariners, 3-2

CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Carrasco allowed a run in 6 1/3 innings, Francisco Lindor had three hits and the Cleveland Indians beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Carrasco (2-0) came up limping after covering first base during the third inning but powered through 103 pitches. He allowed four hits and three walks while striking out five.

Mike Napoli scored Lindor with a go-ahead double in the third inning, and the Indians took advantage of starter Wade Miley’s wildness to score twice in the fourth.

Kyle Seager hit a solo homer in the sixth for Seattle.

Cody Allen allowed a run in the ninth but recorded his fourth save.


Seattle council committee votes for arena street vacation

SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle City Council committee has voted in favor of vacating a street needed in order to construct a proposed arena in Seattle’s stadium district.

The Sustainability and Transportation committee voted 4 to 1 during its meeting Tuesday. Councilmembers Mike O’Brien, Tim Burgess, Rob Johnson and Bruce Harrell voted in favor of the street vacation, while Sally Bagshaw voted against the proposal.

The street vacation will now be forwarded to the full City Council for a vote. The vacation of Occidental Avenue is the final major step in the arena proposed by investor Chris Hansen in the hopes of luring an NBA or an NHL team to Seattle and would lead to the issuing of a master use permit.

The project has faced strong opposition from the Port of Seattle with concerns about traffic and more infringement on the maritime industrial area surrounding the stadium district.

Condition of professor mauled by bear upgraded

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The condition of an assistant university professor who was mauled by a bear in southeast Alaska is improving.

A spokesman at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage says 35-year-old Forest Wagner’s condition has been upgraded to serious.

A University of Alaska Southeast spokeswoman says Wagner was with a group of students and teaching assistants leading a mountaineering course on Mount Emmerich near Haines, Alaska, when he was attacked by a sow with two cubs. No students were hurt.

Alaska State Troopers reported they were called to rescue Wagner. A spokeswoman said the school group was spread out on the mountain and it was unclear if anyone witnessed the attack.

An Alaska Department of Fish and Game spokesman says a biologist plans to interview the students about the attack after they return to Juneau.
