Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Matt Carson's RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros in the opener of a four-game set.

Back-to-back base hits by Yan Gomes and Asdrubal Cabrera preceded Michael Brantley's line out against Rhiner Cruz (0-2) in the 11th. Mike Aviles walked to load the bases with one out and Carson, who was a defensive replacement for Jason Giambi in the top of the 10th, deposited a single into right-center to bring home Gomes for the winning run.

The Indians are one-half game behind the Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays, who are tied for the AL's two wild-card spots.
