TWEETS FROM JOE REEDY
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Corey Kluber struck out 11 in eight innings, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Friday night to stay in the race for a playoff spot.
Kluber (18-9) allowed five hits and walked two in his final start of the season, bolstering his case for the AL Cy Young Award. The right-hander, who is tied for the AL lead in wins, recorded his 11th double-digit...

Columbus, OH - After their fourth win in as many preseason games, the guys are striving to make an impression in the hopes of landing a roster spot. The competition is heating up with just a few opportunities available.
One of the bottom six forwards that picked up where he left off at the end of last season is Corey Tropp. Claimed off waivers from Buffalo last November, he's...
On Wednesday's Indians Live at 6:30pm, we will reveal the top play from each bracket.
Friday marked the start of on-ice workouts for the Blue Jackets, but earlier this week, the Jackets focused on their fans as 21 players surprised 38 season ticket holders to deliver tickets for the 2014-15 season.
One of the newest Jackets, Scott Hartnell, who came to Columbus during the off-season in a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers, visited fans and got to see a bit more of...
Four games out of the second American League wild card as the weekend nears, the Indians' best formula for reaching the postseason again is to take care of business themselves. They'll have to do that anyway, but they also need some help.
The AL wild-card race is still full of uncertainty, as it's been most of the season, and plenty can change even though...

Zach McAllister began the year with three wins in his first four starts. The Indians are hoping he can return to that form in tonight's spot start against Houston.
The right-hander makes his first Major League start since July 31. In that game against Seattle he allowed four runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings, which marked his second-shortest outing of the season. After that...
BEREA, Ohio -- Mike Pettine said from the time he was hired as Browns head coach that he wanted a team that could run the ball and play good defense.
That mantra has been declared before by former Browns coaches, but with little or no success in recent history.
In 2013, the Browns averaged just 86.4 yards per game running the ball, which was near the bottom of the NFL.
Kyrie Irving won the FIBA World Cup MVP for Team USA, but other than that, the Cavaliers really don't have a whole lot going for them.
Oh wait. That was last summer.
Bad jokes aside, Irving did more than just win MVP of the tournament in Spain -- where the U-S-A easily won the G-O-L-D.
The Cavaliers point guard also proved he can play, and play very well, alongside other superstars...
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. The home schedule is great news for Xavier fans with 11 weekend home games and a New Year's Eve headliner against Georgetown out of the 17 games at Cintas Center.
The Cincinnati Bengals are doing more to support their defensive lineman whose daughter is battling cancer.
Proceeds from the sales of the jersey of Devon Still will go to benefit Cincinnati Children's Hospital and pediatric cancer care and research, the team announced Tuesday.
Still's jersey is available for $100 on the team's official online shop.
