CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Brantley Antworten

kept his cool and delivered for the Cleveland Indians.Brantley singled in the winning run in the 11th inning Jesus Aguilar Jersey , and Cleveland beat the Red Sox 5-4 on Saturday night to delay Boston’s bid for a club-record 106th victory and home-field advantage throughout the postseason.The sellout crowd of 35,095 was on its feet when Brantley came to bat, but the All-Star said he felt no pressure.“I try to take every at-bat the same,” he said. “I go to the plate trying to make sure I get a good pitch to drive and make it possible to get that runner in from third.”Brantley did exactly that and was mobbed by his teammates, who dumped the contents of the dugout water coolers over his head.“It’s a little cold out tonight to be getting Gatorade baths,” he said.Yan Gomes started the 11th with an infield hit off Drew Pomeranz (2-6), sliding to the bag ahead of first baseman Brock Holt’s tag after third baseman Rafael Devers‘ off-line throw.Greg Allen singled pinch-runner Rajai Davis to second, the runners executed a double steal and Francisco Lindor was intentionally walked. Brantley hit a 1-1 pitch over left fielder Andrew Benintendi and in front of the warning track.Tyler Olson (2-1) pitched two scoreless innings.AL East champion Boston (105-50) has matched the team wins record set in 1912. One Boston win or Houston loss would give the Red Sox home field throughout the postseason and ensure a Division Series matchup against the wild card winner.“We’ll turn the page tomorrow,” manager Alex Cora said. “Drew threw Brantley a breaking ball up in the zone.”Benintendi tied the score 4-4 with a two-run single in the eighth off Brad Hand after Mitch Moreland’s leadoff single and Jackie Bradley Jr.’s double against Andrew Miller, who had pitched a scoreless seventh. Benintendi was thrown out trying for a double by Brantley in left.Mike Clevinger struck out six in five innings and raised his total to 202, making the Indians the first team in major league history to have four pitchers reach 200 in the same season. Carlos Carrasco (217), Trevor Bauer (215) and Corey Kluber (205) are the others.“It was kind of a cool thing to see,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “It kind of sneaked up on me tonight when it happened, but those guys ought to be proud of themselves.”Devers and Blake Swihart hit solo home runs off Clevinger, who walked five and threw 103 pitches.Francisco Lindor had run-scoring singles in the second and fourth. Josh Donaldson had two hits, including an RBI single in the third.Rick Porcello allowed four runs — three earned— in five innings.Mookie Betts was out of the lineup for the second straight night. Xander Bogaerts, Benintendi and Bradley returned after not starting Friday. Martinez, the major league leader in RBIs, was in right field after being a designated hitter Friday.Betts http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-braun-jersey , who leads the majors with a .339 batting average, hasn’t played right field since leaving Sunday’s game with soreness in his left side. He didn’t play Tuesday and was the designated hitter Wednesday and Thursday.Devers homered for the second straight night in the third. Swihart led off the fourth with a line drive that cleared the wall in right field.LOOKING AHEADCora was encouraged by Boston’s rally against Miller and Hand.“Those were good at-bats,” he said. “Who knows, we might face them later on in October, so it’s good to face them — and also good to be successful against them.”TAKE A BREAKCody Allen, the Indians’ closer most of the season, hasn’t pitched since Cleveland clinched the division a week ago. Francona wanted he right-hander to rest to prepare for the postseason. Francona said Allen will throw a bullpen in the next couple of days and resume a normal workload during the final trip.MANAGER’S SUMMITFrancona and Cora talked briefly on the field during batting practice. Cora played four years in Boston while Francona managed the Red Sox, and the two have become close friends.STILL A GOBauer is scheduled to start Tuesday in Kansas City and is expected to throw between 60-65 pitches. He pitched 1 1/3 innings and threw 34 pitches Friday in his first appearance since Aug. 17, when his right leg was broken by a line drive.UP NEXTIndians RHP Adam Plutko (4-5, 5.27 ERA) is to take the mound in Cleveland’s regular-season home finale. RHP Hector Velazquez (7-2, 3.18 ERA) will start for the Red Sox. ATLANTA (AP) — Miles Mikolas has been unbeatable this season when the St. Louis Cardinals score him a couple of runs.He’s 16-0 when getting at least two runs of support, a big asset for the Cardinals as they stay in the postseason hunt.“I’ve been fortunate enough that when I’ve pitched, we’ve had great offense and we’ve put up runs and played great defense and everything has just come together,” Mikolas said. “It’s been a great season.”Kolten Wong hit the first of four St. Louis homers, Mikolas won his third straight start and the Cardinals beat the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves 11-6 on Monday night to give their playoff push another boost.St. Louis has 35 victories since the All-Star break, most in the National League, and has won two straight after losing four in a row. The Cardinals, who also got homers from Paul DeJong, Harrison Bader and Yadier Molina Travis Shaw Jersey , are a half-game ahead of Colorado for the second NL wild card.The Braves took a third consecutive loss after winning a season-best six straight games. They remained 6½ games up in the division following Philadelphia’s loss to the Mets, which reduced Atlanta’s magic number to seven as the Braves try to clinch their first NL East title in five years.Mike Foltynewicz (11-10) walked three of the first five batters he faced — one intentionally — and hit Yadier Molina with a pitch before Wong’s opposite-field, two-run single gave St. Louis a 3-0 lead in the first.Atlanta pitchers have issued 32 walks over the last four games, all at home, where they are 38-37 and have dropped 13 of their last 17.“It just goes down to early on — the walks, the walks, the walks — they all score,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “That’s the big thing.”Mikolas (16-4) allowed four hits, two runs and one walk while striking out six in five innings. The right-hander, who leads the NL in fewest walks per nine innings, improved to 9-0 in 15 road starts.“They fouled off some good pitches, but we played great defense, and I was able to get out of the jams when I was in a sticky situation,” he said.After Freddie Freeman’s 22nd homer made it a one-run game in the third, the Cardinals went up 4-2 in the fourth on Wong’s ninth homer and 6-2 in the fifth on DeJong’s 18th homer and Marcell Ozuna’s RBI double. St. Louis improved to an NL-best 40-19 when hitting a road homer.Foltynewicz allowed five hits, six runs and four walks with two strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. Coming off a complete-game victory at San Francisco, Foltynewicz had gone 4-2 with a 1.84 ERA in his last eight starts, but he couldn’t overcome a lack of control.Nick Markakis drove in a run with his NL-leading 42nd double, coming against Dakota Hudson in the seventh Paul Molitor Jersey , to pull the Braves to 6-5. But then Jesse Biddle gave up a pair of two-out walks in the eighth, and Bader, a defensive replacement in the seventh, hit a three-run homer to put St. Louis up 9-5.The Braves had a chance to do more damage in the bottom of the inning against Carlos Martinez after Ronald Acuna Jr.’s RBI single cut the lead to 9-6, but Martinez struck out Freeman with the bases loaded.Freeman slammed his bat down in disgust.“Big moment, obviously, bases loaded and a three-run game at that moment,” St. Louis manager Mike Shildt said. “He made a money pitch.”Molina hit his 18th homer, a two-run shot off Arodys Vizcaino, in the ninth.BAD MOVESCardinals CF Yairo Munoz made two errors in the sixth that let Atlanta cut the lead to 6-4. He dropped the ball after picking up Ender Inciarte’s single, allowing Inciarte to advance to second and Johan Camargo to third. Munoz made a throwing error to third on Tyler Flowers‘ single, allowing both runners to score.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: Shildt said RHP Bud Norris wasn’t available because of irritated skin on his right middle finger. Norris left Sunday night’s win over the Dodgers after walking the only batter he faced.Braves: Camargo, the team’s everyday third baseman, went 1 for 5 in his return to the lineup after missing the past four games with left groin tightness.UP NEXTCardinals: LHP Austin Gomber (5-1, 3.78 ERA) will make his first career start against Atlanta on Tuesday. Gomber allowed seven runs and nine hits in his last start, lasting three innings in a 9-7 loss to the Dodgers.Braves: RHP Anibal Sanchez (6-5, 3.01 ERA) seeks his first victory since Aug. 3, a span of eight starts in which he’s 1-1 with a 3.02 ERA.
