      • LEADING OFF: Indians go for 18, Brewers can sweep Cubs
        September 9, 2017

        A look at what's happening all around the majors Sunday:


        SUNDAY NIGHT STREAKING

        The Indians will play for their 18th straight victory in a nationally televised game against the Orioles. Francisco Lindor homered to help Cleveland win its franchise-record 17th straight on Saturday, the longest run in the majors since Oakland took 20 straight in 2002. The best streak in baseball history belongs to the New York Giants, who had a 26-game run in 1916, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Giants' stretch included a tie, which doesn't count as a completed game in baseball. Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer (15-8, 4.39 ERA) seeks to extend his career-long winning streak to nine games in a matchup against Jeremy Hellickson (2-3, 6.87).

        ''WE NEED IT''

        The Brewers can complete a timely sweep of the NL Central-leading Cubs at Wrigley Field. Milwaukee pulled within three games of the defending World Series champions with a 15-2 win Saturday, riding big hits from Travis Shaw and Orlando Arcia during an eight-run third inning. Zach Davies (16-8, 3.77) goes for the Brewers against Kyle Hendricks (6-4, 3.29). ''We need it,'' Shaw said of Sunday's showdown. ''We're running out of time. Every game is kind of a must-win at this point.'' It wasn't all rosy for Milwaukee on Saturday, though, as Jimmy Nelson was ruled out for the season because of a shoulder injury.

        DAY OF REST

        The Nationals can clinch the NL East with a win against Philadelphia and a Miami loss, but don't expect to see Anthony Rendon, Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman fighting for the title. Manager Dusty Baker had planned to rest most of his regulars, and he's standing by that even with Washington's magic number at two. ''We've got some young players that are going to play tomorrow,'' Baker said. ''Twenty-one games in 20 days - these guys need a blow and tomorrow is the perfect time to give them one.''

        PAINFUL TIMING

        Three postseason contenders could be without key players after they got hurt Saturday: Texas center fielder Carlos Gomez rolled his right ankle on a swing against the Yankees. He didn't even make it halfway to first base on his groundout and needed help getting off the field. Gomez was on crutches with a walking boot after the game. ... Red Sox utility infielder Eduardo Nunez came up limping vs. Tampa Bay after legging out an infield hit. He was replaced at shortstop by regular starter Xander Bogaerts. Acquired from San Francisco in late July, Nunez has provided a spark in Boston's lineup, batting .312 in 37 games with eight homers and 27 RBIs. ... Cardinals center fielder Dexter Fowler bruised his left knee against Pittsburgh when he crashed into the wall trying to catch a long drive by Adam Frazier that turned into an inside-the-park home run. Fowler was replaced in center by Randal Grichuk.

        JUST IN TIME

        The Astros are at risk of being swept by the Athletics, but first, Oakland will have to solve Houston ace Dallas Keuchel (12-3, 2.88). The A's took the first three games of a four-game series against the AL West leaders, but Keuchel is 3-0 with an 0.83 ERA in three starts against Oakland this year, including seven scoreless innings during a 3-1 victory on Aug. 18.

        • Sunday’s six-pack

          Top six picks in the Week 1 of the Westgate SuperContest in Las Vegas:

          6) Pittsburgh Steelers -8.5 , 706

          5) Arizona Cardinals -2, 742

          4) Atlanta Falcons -6.5, 819

          3) Tennessee Titans -2.5, 839

          2) Houston Texans -5, 863

          1) Cincinnati Bengals -2.5, 866

          ****************************

          Sunday’s List of 13: Wrapping up a sports Saturday…….

          13) Oklahoma 31, Ohio State 16— Buckeyes play Army, UNLV and Rutgers their next three games; going to be some serious butt-kicking going on there, after this showing in the second half.

          Senior QB Mayfield was 27-35 for 386 yards and three TD’s for the Sooners, who outscored Ohio State 28-13 in the second half.

          12) USC 42, Stanford 24— Trojans gained over 600 yards of offense; hope they left some points on that field for the Rams today. USC was 10-12 on third down, ran for 307 yards. Impressive.

          11) Clemson 14, Auburn 6— Gus Malzahn won the national title at Auburn in 2013; since then, he is 24-17 on the Plains, 11-13 in SEC games. No bueno.

          Gene Chizik won the national title at Auburn in 2010; he got fired two years later, after going 11-14 in 2011-12. My point here? Not a lot of patience at Auburn- they gained a total of 117 yards in this game. The natives are officially restless.

          10) Iowa 44, Iowa State 41 OT— Cyclones’ QB Jacob Park was South Carolina’s Mr Football in 2013; he went to Georgia, redshirted in 2014, then transferred to Trident Technical School, and then Northeasterm Oklahoma- he didn’t play ball at the those places.

          He started three games at Iowa State last year; Saturday he completed 25-46 passes for 347 yards and four TD’s as the Cyclones lost in OT to their in-state rivals.

          Iowa State’s starting QB for most of last year was Joel Lanning; he is now the Cyclones’ middle linebacker. You don’t see that a lot.

          9) TCU 28, Arkansas 7— Horned Frogs ran the ball well and played solid defense. In its last three games against Power 5 opponents (Mizzou, Va Tech, TCU), the Razorbacks have scored zero second half points. No bueno.

          Arkansas’ kicker missed 22 and 23-yard FG’s; TCU fumbled on the Arkansas 3-yard line.

          8) Middle Tennessee 30, Syracuse 23— MTSU coach Rick Stockstill played QB at Florida State back in the day; his son Brent plays QB for the Blue Raiders now. Wonder what that is like, a coach needing to win to keep his job, and his most important player is his son. No pressure there.

          The great basketball coach Al McGuire coached his son Allie at Marquette; when a point guard on the team complained that Allie was starting ahead of him, McGuire said: “I like you, but I LOVE my son.” End of discussion.

          7) Indians 4, Orioles 2— Cleveland has outscored opponents 118-30 during its 17-game winning streak, 57-12 in the first three innings.

          The A’s swept a doubleheader from Houston Saturday; I should’ve bought a lottery ticket.

          6) Milwaukee Brewers’ pitcher Jimmy Nelson is out for the year; he hurt his shoulder diving head-first back into first base on a pickoff attempt Friday night. Oy.

          5) Louisville 47, North Carolina 35— Lamar Jackson was 25-39 passing for 393 yards and three TD’s, and also ran for 132 yards and three TD’s, as the Tar Heels got beat at home for the second week in a row. Cardinals play Clemson next week- they gained 705 yards in this game.

          4) Kent State 38, Howard 31— Cam Newton’s brother is Howard’s QB; he’s put up 74 points as the Bison split a pair of games against lower-level I-A programs. Not bad.

          3) Georgia 20, Notre Dame 19— Dawgs had 12 penalties for 126 yards; teams combined to convert only 7-34 on third down, but this is a huge road win for Georgia, with a freshman QB.

          2) Mississippi State 57, Louisiana Tech 21— Tech actually LOST 87 YARDS ON ONE PLAY late in this game!!! They wound up with 3rd-and-goal from their own 7-yard line, which has to be a record of some sort.

          1) Next Saturday’s Miami-Florida State game was moved to October 7 because of the hurricane; Miami’s October 12 game was pushed back two days to the 14th.

          Our thoughts-prayers to all the people affected by the storms. Please stay safe, though you’re probably not reading this anyway.

                          CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians stretched their franchise-record winning streak to 18 games, beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 Sunday night behind homers from Francisco Lindor and Roberto Perez.

                          Cleveland's streak is the longest in the majors since Oakland won 20 straight in 2002. The best run in baseball history belongs to the New York Giants, who had a 26-game streak in 1916, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Giants' streak included a tie, which doesn't count as a game in baseball.

                          The crowd of 21,259 roared in the ninth inning as Cody Allen recorded his 26th save. He struck out the first two hitters and retired Trey Mancini on a line drive to right field to end the game.

                          Perez snapped a 1-all tie in the sixth with a leadoff homer. Lindor then broke two bats while running the count to 3-2 before homering to right. Cleveland's All-Star shortstop, using a bat tossed to him by teammate Abraham Almonte, looked at the dugout and smiled as his 29th homer of the season sailed into the seats.

                          Trevor Bauer (16-8) allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings for Cleveland.

                          Jeremy Hellickson (3-3) gave up three runs in six innings.

                          NATIONALS 3, PHILLIES 2

                          WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington became the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot this season, winning the NL East as Stephen Strasburg extended his scoreless streak to a franchise-record 34 innings.

                          More than 90 minutes after Washington finished off the Phillies, Nationals Park erupted again when Lane Adams hit a two-run, 11th-inning homer to lead Atlanta over second-place Miami, sealing the division title for the fourth time in six years.

                          Strasburg (13-4) threw two-hit ball for eight innings and struck out 10. He hasn't allowed a run since Aug. 19 at San Diego, his first start since coming off the disabled list with an elbow nerve impingement.

                          Ryan Madson gave up Nick Williams' bloop two-out, two-run single before retiring Rhys Hoskins on a grounder for his second save this season and first since the Nationals acquired him from Oakland on July 16.

                          Rookie Ben Lively (3-6) allowed six hits and struck out seven in his first career complete game, the first for the Phillies this year.

                          Dee Gordon broke an eighth-inning tie with his first career pinch-homer. Christian Yelich hit an RBI double in the ninth and scored on Justin Bour's sacrifice fly to boost the lead to 8-5.

                          Arodys Vizcaino (5-3) allowed two hits in two scoreless innings.

                          ROCKIES 8, DODGERS 1

                          LOS ANGELES (AP) - The NL West leaders lost their 10th straight game for their worst skid in 25 years and have dropped 15 of 16 yet still have the best record in the majors at 92-51.

                          Mark Reynolds hit a grand slam, Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story also homered, and Tyler Chatwood (7-12) allowed five hits in five scoreless innings.

                          Rich Hill (9-8) gave up two runs and four hits in five innings.

                          OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Astros ace Dallas Keuchel (12-4) walked in two runs and forced in another by hitting another during a shaky sixth inning as Oakland completed a four-game sweep of Houston, which entered tied with Cleveland for the best record in the AL.

                          Keuchel allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings. Kendall Graveman (5-4) pitched five-hit ball over six innings and allowed one run.

                          CHICAGO (AP) - Travis Shaw hit a two-run homer to back Zach Davies (17-8) as Milwaukee complete a three-game sweep and closed within two games of the NL Central-leading Cubs. Chicago entered the series with a five-game division lead, a season high, but the defending World Series champions totaled three runs in the series.

                          Milwaukee and St. Louis trail Colorado by three games for the second NL wild card.

                          Davies allowed one run and seven hits in seven innings, and Corey Knebel got three outs for his 34th save. Kyle Hendricks (6-5) gave up three runs and four hits in six innings.

                          BOSTON (AP) - With Tampa Bay players' thinking about Hurricane Irma approaching home, they beat Boston to avoid a three-game sweep and deal reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello his major league-leading 17th loss.

                          Porcello (9-17) took a 1-0 lead into the fifth, when Wilson Ramos and Evan Longoria hit RBI singles. Boston has scored two runs or fewer 18 times in 30 starts while Porcello was in the game.

                          Ramos homered in the sixth off Brandon Workman, and Lucas Duda went deep in the seventh against Robby Scott.

                          Tampa Bay stopped Boston's four-game winning streak. Alex Cobb (11-9) allowed one run and four hits - all singles - and three walks in five innings. Alex Colome pitched a perfect ninth to complete a five-hitter and earn his major-league leading 43rd save in 48 chances.

                          YANKEES 16, RANGERS 7


                          ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Aaron Judge became the second major league rookie with a 40-homer season, going deep twice as New York moved 3+ games ahead of Minnesota for the AL's top wild card and closed within 3+ games of AL East-leading Boston. Texas trails the Twins by 2+ games.

                          Gary Sanchez also hit two solo homers for the Yankees, giving him 30 this season and 50 in his 161 games since his 2015 debut.

                          With Judge's AL-best 40th homer in the fourth, the 25-year-old joined Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle as the only Yankees to hit 40 homers at age 25 or younger. Judge added No. 41 two innings later, a drive that would have gone 463 feet unimpeded, according to MLB's Statcast.

                          Mark McGwire hit a league-high 49 homers as a rookie for Oakland in 1987.

                          Chad Green (4-0) struck out four in 2 1/3 innings. A.J. Griffin (6-6) gave up five runs pitching into the fourth.

                          Scooter Gennett was called out on strikes by plate umpire Shane Livensparger to end the inning, slammed down his bat and helmet, and was ejected, setting off the confrontation,.

                          • Streak on: Indians beat Orioles for 18th win in a row
                            September 10, 2017


                            CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians stretched their franchise-record winning streak to 18 games, beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 Sunday night behind homers from Francisco Lindor and Roberto Perez.

                            Cleveland's streak is the longest in the majors since Oakland won 20 straight in 2002. The best run in baseball history belongs to the New York Giants, who had a 26-game streak in 1916, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Giants' streak included a tie, which doesn't count as a game in baseball.

                            The crowd of 21,259 roared in the ninth inning as Cody Allen recorded his 26th save. He struck out the first two hitters and retired Trey Mancini on a line drive to right field to end the game.

                            Perez snapped a 1-all tie in the sixth with a leadoff homer. Lindor then broke two bats while running the count to 3-2 before homering to right. Cleveland's All-Star shortstop, using a bat tossed to him by teammate Abraham Almonte, looked at the dugout and smiled as his 29th homer of the season sailed into the seats.

                            Cleveland hasn't lost since Aug. 23 and has outscored its opponents 121-32 in the streak. Cleveland has trailed in only four of 162 innings during the stretch.

                            The Indians are a game ahead of Houston for the league's best record and reduced their magic number to clinch the AL Central to seven. Cleveland trailed Houston by 14 games on July 22.

                            The New York Yankees won 19 in a row in 1947, which the Indians can match Monday against Detroit.

                            Trevor Bauer (16-8) allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander moved into a tie with Boston's Chris Sale for the league lead in wins and has won nine straight decisions.

                            Jose Ramirez, back in the lineup after missing three games with a sore wrist, had an RBI groundout in the first. Baltimore tied it in the sixth on Jonathan Schoop's single.

                            Chris Davis hit a solo homer in the seventh for Baltimore, which has lost four straight and is three games out of the wild-card race. Jeremy Hellickson (3-3) allowed three runs in six innings.

                            TRAINER'S ROOM

                            Orioles: Manager Buck Showalter said OF Craig Gentry (broken right finger) could rejoin the team this week in Toronto.

                            Indians: OF Bradley Zimmer was removed from the game with an injured left hand after diving into first trying to beat out a ground ball in the seventh.

                            UP NEXT


                            Orioles: RHP Ubaldo Jimenez will make his first start since Aug. 30 in the first of a three-game series Monday against Toronto.

                            Indians: RHP Carlos Carrasco, coming off his first complete game of the season against the White Sox, will start the opener of a three-game series with visiting Detroit.

                            • LEADING OFF: Dodgers near LA skid record, Rays at home in NY
                              September 10, 2017

                              A look at what's happening all around the majors Monday:



                              STILL STRUGGLING


                              The NL West-leading Dodgers are a loss away from their longest skid since moving to Los Angeles as they open a series at San Francisco. L.A. has dropped 10 straight for the first time since 1992, and that was the franchise's worst stretch since the Brooklyn Dodgers lost 16 consecutive in 1944. Kenta Maeda (12-6, 4.02 ERA) tries to play stopper against Giants rookie Chris Stratton (2-3, 4.10).

                              HOME AWAY FROM HOME


                              Lucas Duda gets to be on the home team at Citi Field once again, this time when the Rays host the Yankees in Queens because of Hurricane Irma. Duda was traded from the Mets to Tampa Bay this season, and this will be his first trip back to his old home since the July deal. The Yankees are wrapping a ten-game road trip just a few miles from their Bronx stadium.

                              9/11 ANNIVERSARY

                              Teams across the country will hold pregame ceremonies and moments of silence on the 16-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, and players, coaches and umpires will wear hats with an American flag patch. There was no scheduled home game for either New York team, although the Yankees will play against the Rays at the Mets' home in Citi Field due to Hurricane Irma.

                              REST UP

                              The Nationals are off, a day after becoming the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot this season. Fresh from winning its fourth NL East crown in four years, Washington resumes Tuesday at home against Atlanta. Manager Dusty Baker already is trying to give his regulars rest down the stretch - Matt Wieters and Jayson Werth sat out both Saturday and Sunday, while Daniel Murphy, Ryan Zimmerman, Anthony Rendon and Michael A. Taylor all watched the Nats' last game over the weekend.

                                **********

                                Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up an NFL Sunday

                                Chiefs 42, Patriots 27— Chiefs scored 28 second half points, ran up 537 yards, offsetting 139 penalty yards, as they made New England’s defense look slow. Only one of KC’s six TD drives was less than 75 yards- they had touchdown PLAYS of 75, 78 yards. Surprising result, but last three times New England lost in Week 1, they won the Super Bowl that year.

                                Bills 21, Jets 12— Buffalo sits alone atop AFC East, holding Jets to 38 rushing yards and 11 first downs. As far as team points over/unders go, my new hobby here, under is 18-7-1— only 7 of 26 teams exceeded their over/under points so far this week. Jets’ total was 15.5, 1.5 points lower than any other team this week.

                                Falcons 23, Bears 17— Chicago had ball on 10-yard line when game ended; two passes were either dropped/broken up inside 2-yard line in last three plays. Falcons coach Quinn was VERY happy when this game ended and he let it show— not sure happy is right word, maybe total relief after that Super Bowl and then an 0-4 preseason.

                                Jaguars 29, Texans 7— Upset of Day. Jacksonville ran ball for 155 yards, were +4 in turnovers, and held QB-challenged Houston to 203 yards. Savage was awful in first half; rookie QB Watson played second half, led one TD drive, but this was another very disappointing day in Houston.

                                Eagles 30, Redskins 17— Philly’s two TD drives were only 56-39 yards; each team scored a defensive TD, as Eagles snapped a 5-game skid against Washington. Iggles converted 8-14 on 3rd down, Redskins only 3-14, as Philly scored TD’s on two of first four drives, then kicked three FG’s on their last six drives.

                                Lions 35, Cardinals 23— On their first nine drives, Detroit had one TD, one FG, gaining total of 182 yards, but on their last three drives, Lions ran 17 plays for 149 yards and three TD’s. I have a question: is conditioning a factor early in the season? Teams haven’t played full games because coaches are scared of injuries, so when they have to play a full game in Week 1, are some teams in worse shape than others? Arizona’s defense looked very tired at the end.

                                Raiders 26, Titans 16— One of two games this week (Atl-Chi) with no turnovers. For the week so far, home teams are 7-6 vs spread; over is 3-10. Listening to TV Sunday, the consensus is that the defenses are ahead of offenses in the first couple weeks of the season. Offense takes more precision. Titans were 7-14 on 3rd down but scored only one TD, kicked three FG’s.

                                Ravens 20, Bengals 0— Baltimore led 3-0 at 2:00 warning of first half, then scored two TD’s in 0:24 span to break game open and lead 17-0 at half. Total yardage in lackluster game was 268-221 Baltimore; Ravens had 85 penalty yards, while Bengals turned ball over five times (-4). Flacco was 9-17/111 passing, after missing just about the whole summer with a bad back.

                                Steelers 21, Browns 18— Cleveland is now 1-18 in Week 1, with only win 13 years ago. Steelers blocked punt for TD on Browns’ first drive, then survived 144 penalty yards to win their opener. Pittsburgh ran 17 times for only 35 yards, which is not good; Big Ben targeted Brown 11 times, and he caught all 11 passes for 182 yards.

                                Rams 46, Colts 9— Indy has severe QB issues; if Andrew Luck can’t come back soon, and he hasn’t started practicing yet, they should sign Colin Kaepernick, who is way better than either Tolzien or Brissett. As for the Rams, this was a great day; Jared Goff looked like an NFL QB and the defense was dominant, even without Aaron Donald.

                                Packers 17, Seahawks 9— Game was scoreless until just before the half; this was 5th time in Seattle’s last nine road games that they scored 10 or less points. Rodgers was a magician on third down (9-16), as usual; Green Bay held Seahawks to 12 first downs as Seattle lost its 8th game in a row at Lambeau Field.

                                Panthers 23, 49ers 3— Hard to tell much about Carolina’s offense; their two TD drives were only 42-28 yards. Total yardage was 287-217; Panthers were 7-13 on third down- they didn’t score on any of their drives that started 75+ yards from the goal line, but scored two TD’s, kicked three FG’s on the other five drives that started less than 75 yards from the goal line.

                                Cowboys 19, Giants 3— Dallas outgained Giants 392-233; New York ran ball only 12 times for 35 yards, converted only 4-12 on third down- their average starting field position was their own 16 yard line. Under is now 8-1 in Giants’ last nine road games; they are 5-10-2 vs spread in last 17 games as a road underdog. Cowboys converted 8-15 on third down, had a 13-yard edge in average starting field position.
