As the Milwaukee Brewers continue their push toward the postseason, they hope Matt Garza can be a key contributor down the stretch.
Looking to be more efficient than his first two starts following a month-long stint on the disabled list, Garza takes the mound Sunday in the decisive finale against the visiting Cincinnati Reds.
After allowing six runs and eight hits in three innings...
DETROIT -- Ryan Raburn's frustrating season continued on Saturday night as he hyperextended his left knee during the third inning against the Tigers.
The Indians outfielder said it happened when he tried to plant his leg while chasing down a single by Rajai Davis. It got worse after that.
Raburn said he strained the tendon on the outside of the knee. Doctors will wait for the...
DETROIT (AP) -- Alex Avila hit a two-out, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Detroit Tigers kept their slim AL Central lead, beating the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Saturday night.
The Tigers remained a half-game ahead of Kansas City, which topped Boston 7-1.
Avila sent a full-count pitch from reliever Bryan Shaw (5-4) into the right-field stands for his 11th home run.
CINCINNATI -- It took all of one game for Gunner Kiel to etch his name into the University of Cincinnati football record book.
And some game it was.
Kiel completed 25 of 37 passes for 418 yards and six touchdowns to equal a school record in a 58-34 victory against Toledo at Paul Brown Stadium. Kiel and the Bearcats scored touchdowns on their first six possessions, then had to withstand...
DETROIT -- Due to Thursday's doubleheader, Michael Brantley will be the designated hitter for only the seventh time this season as the Indians begin a pivotal three-game series against the Tigers.
Brantley, who comes into the game sixth in the AL in batting average at .316, has done very well as the DH. He is 10 for 22 this season with a home run and six RBI. He was the DH in...
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds have scratched right-hander Mat Latos from his scheduled start at Milwaukee due to a bone bruise in his right elbow.
Daniel Corcino will start Friday night in place of Latos, who is 5-5. Latos spent the first two-plus months of the season on the disabled list with right elbow and left knee injuries.
Corcino is a September call-up who has no record...
CLEVELAND -- When he was called up in late May, T.J. House put together a string of starts that kept the Indians in the game. Over his last three starts though he was been pretty dominant.
The left-hander matched career highs on Thursday, going seven innings and striking out eight as the Indians beat the Twins 2-0 in the second game of a doubleheader.
House became the first Indians...
CLEVELAND -- Carlos Santana's season can be broken into two distinct halves -- when he was being moved around and when he found a home at first base.
For the Indians, the latter is what has turned his season around.
Back in May it would have been nearly impossible to imagine Santana tying his career high in home runs this season. But with two in the Indians' doubleheader...
CLEVELAND -- When it comes to scoreboard watching, it really doesn't make a difference if it is September or April for Terry Francona, who says he does it most of the year anyway because it relaxes him.
"If I sit there and just stare at our field, I get anxiety and it doesn't help. I think I make better decisions when I'm relaxed," he said.
CINCINNATI - Xavier University announced its 2014-15 men's basketball schedule Tuesday, which includes the potential for 18 regular season games against teams that made postseason play last season.

PITTSBURGH -- Despite the 30-27 heartbreaking loss, the Browns might be on to something.
After scoring just three points and totaling just 101 yards (62 yards rushing, 39 passing) in the first half, the Browns switched to a no huddle offense and had 288 yards in the second half alone.
The Browns finished with 389 yards in total offense, 183 yards rushing and 206 yards passing. The...

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Shaun Suisham drilled a 41-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 30-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
The Steelers blew a 24-point halftime lead as the Browns rallied behind quarterback Brian Hoyer, but escaped thanks to some great plays from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receiver Markus Wheaton.

TWEETS FROM JOE REEDY
The Buckeyes have a big game on Saturday night against Virginia Tech, and according to ABC 6's Clay Hall, they will be getting a pre-game speech from a man who's played in quite a few big games himself.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Curtis Granderson and Travis d'Arnaud each hit a three-run homer and drove in four runs on Friday night, powering the New York Mets to their third straight victory, 14-5 over the Cincinnati Reds.
The Mets hit five homers for the first time since 2006. Wilmer Flores and Dilson Herrera had solo shots, and Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer in the ninth. New York...
CLEVELAND -- Different might be an understatement when describing the Indians lineup tonight against the White Sox.
For starters, Michael Bourn and Jason Kipnis have the night off. Tyler Holt gets his second start of the season at center and will bat leadoff for the first time while Zach Walters will start at second for the first time this season and bat eighth.
Ryan Raburn gets...
CLEVELAND -- Indians outfielder David Murphy has been activated from the disabled list in time for Friday night's opener of a three-game series against the White Sox.
Murphy, who has been on the 15-day DL with a strained right oblique since Aug. 10, is batting .262 with 21 doubles, seven home runs and 55 RBI. He has spent the last two days rehabbing with Columbus, where he went...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Without brawny Carlos Hyde and his 1,521 yards rushing, many Ohio State fans expected the worst out of the tailback position this season.
So far, it's been a bright spot.
"Last year, we had a guy who was a 20- or 25-carry guy," Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said. "We have some pretty capable players. We also don't have that body type to...
BALTIMORE (AP) -- J.J. Hardy hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles gave away a six-run lead before rebounding to beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-7 Thursday night for a three-game sweep.
