"So far, our most dominant performance from a pitching standpoint. Fausto was dominant, flat-out dominant."

Throwback? Throw up!
Indians 7, Nationals 1: Score another one for Manny Acta. Jim Riggleman's lineup, fit for a mid-March split squad game in Viera, is no match for Fausto Carmona.
Fausto Carmona was really good (9 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 1 HR). And Carlos Santana can play. And the silver lining: an 0-4 night for Austin Kearns.
J.D. Martin makes Cleveland thankful he never made it in Cleveland (7.2 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 2 HR).
Thankfully, this one was over quickly: Just 2 hours, 3 minutes of suffering.
No pressure, kid: Strasburg puts on his stopper hat tomorrow against the Tribe's David Huff.
