AKRON, Ohio — Carlos Carrasco returned to the mound for the first time since his cancer diagnosis Monday night and was met with a standing ovation.

Carrasco went in for the Akron Rubber Ducks at the top of the sixth inning.

He walked one batter and struck out another.

It's nice to finally see him back on the mound doing what he loves.
