CLEVELAND -- Josh Tomlin baffled Blue Jays batters for nearly six innings and Andrew Miller blew them away as the Cleveland Indians edged Toronto 2-1 on Saturday to take 2-0 lead in the AL Championship Series.Carlos Santana homered off 20-game winner J.A. Happ and Francisco Lindor had an RBI single for the Indians, who have won five straight postseason games for the first time in their 116-year history.An afterthought in August, Tomlin has emerged as an unlikely October star for the Indians. He allowed one run and three hits in 5 2/3 innings before Cleveland manager Terry Francona called on his bullpen led by the magnificent Miller, who is making the Blue Jays look like Little Leaguers.The lanky left-hander struck out the side in the seventh, two more in the eighth and has 10 strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings in the series. He has not allowed a run in 16 career postseason innings.Cody Allen struck out Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista in a perfect ninth for the save, finishing a three-hitter. The Indians had never been up 2-0 in four previous ALCS trips.After bludgeoning Texas in the AL Division Series by hitting eight homers and scoring 22 runs, Toronto has one run and 10 hits -- eight singles and a pair of doubles -- in two games against the Indians.Bautista is 0 for 6 in the series with five strikeouts and in a 0-for-14 postseason tailspin. The only bat flipping Joey Bats has done is back into the rack.The series heads north to Torontos raucous Rogers Centre for Game 3 on Monday with Clevelands Trevor Bauer slated to face Marcus Stroman.Tomlin originally was scheduled to pitch Game 3, but the right-hander was pushed up after Trevor cut his right pinkie while repairing one of the drones he enjoys flying as a hobby. The 31-year-old Tomlin pitched himself out of the rotation by going 0-5 with a 11.48 ERA in August, but injuries to Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar gave him another chance and hes made the most of it.Tomlin, who ignored taunting Boston fans to close out the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS, relied on his curveball to keep the Blue jays guessing.With some help from Happ, the Indians took a 2-1 lead in the third on Lindors RBI single.Rajai Davis reached on a fielders choice, stole second and took third when Happs pitch bounced in the dirt and rolled a few feet away from catcher Russell Martin. One out later, Lindor lined his single to center for this third RBI in two games, another clutch moment by a 22-year-old with the presence of a 10-year veteran.Tomlin had the Blue Jays off-balance and guessing with an assortment of breaking pitches -- nothing harder than 75 mph -- before Toronto finally pushed across its first run of the series to tie it 1-1 in the third.Darwin Barney, starting at second in place of the injured Devon Travis, singled with one out, moved up on a groundout and scored on Josh Donaldsons opposite-field double, his sixth of the postseason.Tomlin walked Encarnacion, and with reliever Jeff Manship up in Clevelands bullpen just in case, he struck out Bautista, who remains in a funk.Santana gave the Indians a 1-0 lead in the second with a lined homer that barely cleared the 19-foot-high wall in left. The switch-hitter, who batted leadoff in Game 1, yanked a 1-1 pitch for his first postseason homer and the first allowed by Happ in five starts.TRAINERS ROOMTravis is done for the postseason with a right knee injury he aggravated during Game 1. After missing two games in the ALDS with a bruised knee, the Blue Jays put him on the roster but he jarred his knee while covering first base in the fifth inning and left in pain. Toronto was granted a roster substitution by Major League Baseball and replaced Travis with first baseman Justin Smoak. Travis would not be eligible for the World Series if the Blue jays advance.UP NEXTBlue Jays: Stroman allowed one run in both of regular-season starts -- no decisions- against Cleveland, posting a 1.29 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 14 innings. He struck out six over 6 2/3 innings at Rogers Centre on July 1, and had nine Ks in 7 1/3 innings on Aug. 21 in Cleveland.Indians: Bauer was superb in two outings against Toronto, going 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 16 strikeouts. Scheduled to start the following day, he came on in relief and pitched five scoreless innings in Clevelands 2-1, 19-inning win July 1, the last win in the Indians franchise-record 14-game streak. Bauer struck out a career-high 13 in an eight-inning no-decision at home against the Blue Jays on Aug. 19. Brooklyn Nets Hats .

Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. Randy Foye Nets Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigans mission is to win the Big Ten title for the first time since 2004 and reach the playoff. If the Wolverines have to rely on a backup quarterback to do it, coach Jim Harbaugh doesnt seem worried about it.Wilton Speight injured his left, non-throwing shoulder in Saturdays 14-13 loss at Iowa. Harbaugh said Speights status for Saturdays home game against Indiana could be a game-time decision.Harbaugh would not even say Speight had an injured shoulder. He acknowledged the undisclosed ailment would lead to backups John OKorn and Shane Morris getting a majority of the snaps Monday and for at least the next couple of days.Theyve both had extensive practice time through the course of the year, he said. Were confident they can do a good job.The fourth-ranked Wolverines can still reach their goals of a league title and likely a trip to the four-team playoff if they beat Indiana, win against No. 2 Ohio State on the road and win the conference title game.Their chances of doing all that would improve with Speight, who has been excellent for the Wolverines (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten) as a first-year starter this season. He completed more than 62 percent of his passes for 2,156 yards with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions.OKorn and Morris have played sparingly in several games, combining to complete 17 of 23 passes with two TDs and no interceptions. OKorn started 16 games at Houston before transferring to Michigan and sitting out last season. Morris started one game as a freshman in 2013 and one game in the 2014 season under former coach Brady Hoke before becoming a seldom-used backup under Harbaugh.Him and Wilton are pretty similar quarterbacks, tight end Jake Butt said. Were going to be running the same, exact plays.If Speight isnt cleared to play, OKorn will likely get start his first game at Michigan against the Hoosiers (5-5, 3-44).dddddddddddde has been preparing every single week as if he were the starter, Butt said. If his number is called, Im confident, everyone is confident, that John will be able to get the job done.The Wolverines are favored to win Saturday by about four touchdowns, but will likely be underdogs on the road against the Buckeyes, who have won four straight and 11 of 12 against in the rivalry. If Michigan can reach the Big Ten championship game for the first time, it will be expected to get past the East division champion to advance to the College Football Playoff.While Harbaugh has not talked to his team about the path to reach its goals, his players have been discussing the topic among themselves.Guys on the team have talked about it, Butt said. Theres really only one scenario, we got to win out. Its as simple as that. If we win out and handle business, were right where we wanted to be.Harbaugh might want to hand the ball off to Chris Evans more to close the season strong. The freshman averaged 6.5 yards rushing per carry, nearly three times more than anyone else on the team, but had just eight of the teams 35 rushing attempts against the Hawkeyes.Michigan also could tweak its defense against the run after allowing Iowas one-dimensional offense to gain 164 yards on the ground and letting Michigan States struggling team have some success with 217 yards rushing.Its something we dont want to let happen again, defensive tackle Matt Godin said. We need to change it. Way too many yards. Its definitely alarming in a way. Im sure well look at it and get it fixed. It all comes back to the defensive line and linebackers working together.---More AP college football at and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
