Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey .Kluber allowed two runs and struck out nine in 6 1/3 innings, and the Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals 4-3 on Wednesday night.The Indians, who lead Detroit by 7 1/2 games, reduced their magic number for clinching the Central to five.Its what we work for all offseason, spring training play games early on to have this chance come September, Kluber said. We know were in a good spot, but were not looking ahead. We have a lot of work to do.Carlos Santana was 4 for 5 with an RBI single in the eighth. Jose Ramirez drove in the go-ahead run in the fifth with his third double of the game.Kluber (18-9) matched his career high in wins and is 10-1 in his last 14 starts, strengthening his case to win his second AL Cy Young Award in three years.Cody Allen allowed Salvador Perezs leadoff homer in the ninth, but recorded his 28th save in 31 opportunities. Catcher Roberto Perez threw out pinch-runner Terrance Gore trying to steal second for the first out and Allen retired the final two batters.Perez pumped his fist after throwing out Gore, who was successful on all 17 of his career regular season stolen base attempts going into the game.I was excited, said Perez, who credited Allen for making a quick delivery to the plate. You know nobody has thrown him out.That was huge, Allen said. He bailed me out. That changes the whole dynamic of the inning. That was a big-time play.Ian Kennedy (11-10) allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings and lost for the first time since July 25.The Royals reached the World Series in each of the last two years and defeated the Mets in five games to win their first title since 1985 last season.Kansas City was favored to repeat as division champions, but dealt with injuries to key players all season.We cant do anything about it now, Salvador Perez said. Were going to continue to play hard until the end, no matter what happens.Lonnie Chisenhalls RBI single put Cleveland ahead in the second. Run-scoring singles by Kendrys Morales and Perez gave Kansas City the lead in the third when the Royals strung together four straight two-out hits.Santana doubled to start the fifth and scored the tying run on Jason Kipnis double. Ramirezs double to center broke the tie.Klubers hot stretch has come at an opportune time for Clevelands rotation, which is without Carlos Carrasco (broken right hand) and Danny Salazar (strained right forearm).Hes so consistent that hes the same guy every five days, Indians manager Terry Francona said. I mean that as the biggest compliment you can give somebody.ROAD BACK?Salazar, who hasnt pitched in a game since Sept. 9, played catch at 75 feet Tuesday. He could be used in the bullpen if the Indians make the postseason.Im feeling better -- way better, he said. It feels good just to be able to throw a little bit. Im really positive about it.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Carrasco has been fitted with a soft cast. He was struck by Ian Kinslers line drive Saturday.UP NEXTRoyals: LHP Jason Vargas returned from Tommy John surgery and pitched three innings Saturday against the White Sox -- his first appearance since July 21, 2015 -- allowing one run.Indians: RHP Mike Clevinger, who will be in the rotation down the stretch, starts the series finale. The rookie is 2-1 with a 3.52 ERA in seven games, including four starts, at Progressive Field. George Blanda Jersey . And follow TSN.ca right through Deadline Day for all the updates. From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. Jack Tatum Jersey . The recently retired Stern was elected Friday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined with the class of 2014 on Aug. http://www.cheapraidersjerseysonline.com/?tag=erik-harris-jersey-online . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.PITTSBURGH -- Gerrit Cole wasnt feeling nervous in the hours leading up to his major league debut. And that made him nervous. "I couldnt understand it," Cole said. "It made me a little worried." Cole had nothing to be worried about as he took a shutout into the seventh inning and hit a two-run single in his first at-bat Tuesday night, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants in front of a festive crowd. The top pick in the 2011 draft, Cole allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings after being called up from Triple-A Indianapolis earlier in the day. He began his highly touted career with a three-pitch strikeout -- all 96 mph fastballs -- of Gregor Blanco and struck out two overall. He did not walk a batter. "Really, I couldnt have asked for anything better," Cole said. "The guys played great defence and we scored a lot runs. I was able to take us pretty deep into the game and I even got lucky and got a hit. Its tough to draw it up any better than this." Pedro Alvarez went 3 for 3 with a home run to back Cole. Starling Marte also homered and Andrew McCutchen and Russell Martin had two hits each. San Francisco put two runners on in the first and loaded the bases in the second against Cole (1-0) but failed to score in either inning. Cole then set down 13 in a row, starting with Marco Scutaros flyout to end the second. The Giants finally broke through in the seventh inning but the Pirates had built a 5-0 lead by then. "There was no deer-in-the-headlight look from him at all," Pirates second baseman Neil Walker said. "He worked quick, he worked efficiently, he threw strikes and that is all good things for a defence. Hes a lot more polished than a lot of guys who have gotten their start in the big leagues." Many of the 30,614 in attendance cheered every move made by the pitcher who is expected to be the Pirates ace of the future. The only time Cole seemed unsure is when he walked off the mound in the seventh inning and did not tip his cap. "I didnt want to draw attention to myself," Cole said. "I just wanted to put my head down and walk off but it felt great to have all the fans cheering and giving me such a great ovation." Cole certainly made an impression on the Giants. "We knew he had big-time talent and he showed it," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "He had good command of his pitches, he located pretty well and did a good job of keeping us off balance with his breaking pitch to go with the fastball." The sizable crowd for a weekday game, though, caused problems for the organization, which instituted a new security measure for fans entering the stadium. The use of electronic wands slowed down the entrance procedure and Pirates President Frank Coonelly issued an apology during the game. "We made the decision several weeks ago to enhance the security at the gates beeginning with tonights game, but unfortunately we failed in our preparation and execution. Lee Smith Jersey. We stopped the wanding procedure at the start of the game and were able to clear the lines at the gates by the end of first inning," Coonelly said in a statement. "The experience was simply unacceptable and we will ensure this does not happen again." Tim Lincecum (4-6) gave up four runs -- two earned -- on seven hits in 4 2-3 innings while striking out four and walking two. It was the two-time Cy Young Award winners fourth loss in his last five starts. San Francisco reliever George Kontos, who gave up a two-run home run to Alvarez in the seventh inning, was ejected for hitting McCutchen with a pitch in rear end in the eighth. There were a total of four hit batters in the game. Cole snapped a scoreless tie when he lined a two-run single into right field in the second inning with one out and the bases loaded. Cole did not have hit during his two seasons in the minor leagues, going 0 for 6 with three strikeouts. "I got totally lucky there," Cole said with a grin. "Thats my first hit since high school. Its been a long time and I wasnt expected it." Martin, Alvarez and Walker singled to load the bases with no out. After first baseman Brandon Belt reached two rows into the stands to catch Clint Barmes foul pop, Cole delivered in his first plate appearance. Lincecum was knocked out during a two-run fifth that pushed Pittsburgh to a 4-0 lead. McCutchen walked with one and scored from first when right fielder Hunter Pence misplayed Garrett Jones single on a low liner for a two-base error. Jones then scored on Alvarezs infield. Martes solo home run, his sixth, made it 5-0 in the sixth. Three of the Giants first four batters in the seventh had hits, including pinch-hitter Tony Abreu, whose one-out RBI double broke up Coles shutout bid and ended his night. San Francisco closed to 5-2 when pinch-hitter Brett Pill drove in a run with a ground out. The Pirates answered with three runs in the bottom of the seventh to increase the lead to 8-2. Martin singled in a run and Alvarez hit his two-run homer, his 14th. "We put some pressure on (Cole) early but we just couldnt get the big two-out hits when we needed them," Bochy said. "We didnt take advantage of what opportunities we had." NOTES: San Francisco placed 3B Pablo Sandoval on the 15-day disabled list with a strained tendon in his left foot and recalled INF Nick Noonan from Triple-A Fresno. Arias started at third base. . Pittsburgh placed LHP Wandy Rodriguez on the 15-day DL with tightness in his left forearm to open a roster spot for Cole. RHP Charlie Morton, who had Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last June, is expected to come off the DL and pitch Thursday against the Giants in Rodriguezs place. . Giants LHP Barry Zito (4-4, 4.06) faces Pittsburgh LHP Francisco Liriano (4-2, 1.75) on Wednesday night.
