Chapman, Cubs stop Indians, cut World Series deficit to 3-2

Aroldis Chapman CHICAGO (AP) -- They've waited 108 years for a championship. So with this World Series on the verge of slipping away, the Chicago Cubs could not wait any longer. Manager Joe Maddon summoned closer Aroldis Chapman from the bullpen in the seventh inning for the first eight-out save of his big league career, needing to hold off the Cleveland Indians in Game 5. As nervous fans fretted at Wrigley Field, Chapman fired his 100 mph heat and preserved the Cubs' 3-2 win Sunday night, cutting Cleveland's lead to 3-2. The Cubs won a Series game at Wrigley for the first time since Game 6 in 1945. "High anxiety," first baseman Anthony Rizzo said. "A lot of deep breaths. Every pitch gets bi

Jets rally past still winless Browns 31-28

Down a couple of scores and 30 minutes away from a loss to that would have turned a disappointing season into something far more dire, New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis decided it was time for a wake-up call. The fact one was required against the winless and luckless Cleveland Browns is telling of just how things have been going in New York. Regardless, whatever Revis said worked. Ryan Fitzpatrick led three long touchdown drives as the Jets — who trailed 20-7 at halftime — put together the biggest second-half road comeback in team history, rallying for a 31-28 victory on Sunday. "It was basically, 'Just fight. We are not leaving this stadium not winning the game,'" Revis said of his ha

Indians sending Bauer to mound with Series title in reach

Trevor Bauer CHICAGO (AP) -- Trevor Bauer can fly the Indians to a championship. Go finger, er, figure. The eccentric right-hander, who cut his right pinkie while repairing a drone and almost ruined his team's postseason chances, will start Game 5 on Sunday as Cleveland tries to win its first World Series title since 1948. Manager Terry Francona had other options like Danny Salazar or rookie left-hander Ryan Merritt, who started the Indians' AL pennant-clinching win over the Toronto Blue Jays. But he has decided to stick with Bauer, who lost Game 2 but can now make up for his off-field mishap. "Ryan Merritt did a nice job for us against Toronto, but Trevor Bauer has been a good pitcher for u

Irving, James help Cavs hold off Raptors 94-91

TORONTO (AP) -- Kyrie Irving cemented himself as a go-to late-game shooter in last year's NBA Finals. On Friday night, he picked up where he left off. Irving scored 26 points and hit a go-ahead 3 with 44.3 seconds remaining, lifting the Cleveland Cavaliers over the DeMar DeRozan and Toronto Raptors 94-91 in a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference finals. Irving made a tiebreaking 3 with 53 seconds left in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, helping Cleveland win its first title with a historic comeback from a 3-1 series deficit. Friday's make helped Cleveland survive a 32-point effort from DeRozan. Irving was 5 for 9 from beyond the arc and dismissed comparisons from reporters to his winning 3 i

Indians edge Cubs 1-0 at Wrigley Field for 2-1 Series lead

Coco Crisp CHICAGO (AP) -- Cody Allen, Andrew Miller and the Cleveland Indians' nasty bullpen shut down a Wrigley Field party 71 years in the making. Allen escaped a ninth-inning jam and the Indians pitched their fifth shutout this postseason, holding off the Chicago Cubs 1-0 Friday night for a 2-1 lead in the World Series. The crowd began forming beyond the ivy-covered walls in the early morning, all revved up for the first World Series game at Wrigley since 1945. Fans were roaring after a two-out error by first baseman Mike Napoli helped Chicago put runners on second and third in the ninth. Allen silenced the neighborhood ballpark, striking out co-NL Championship Series MVP Javier Baez to

Arrieta deals, Cubs awaken, top Indians to even Series at 1

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jake Arrieta made a teasing run at history, Kyle Schwarber drove in two runs and the Chicago Cubs brushed off a shutout to even the World Series with their first Fall Classic win in 71 years, 5-1 over the Cleveland Indians in Game 2 on Wednesday night. Arrieta carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, briefly invoking Don Larsen's name, before the Indians touched him for two hits and a run. However, the right-hander helped give Chicago just what it needed - a split at Progressive Field - before the Cubbies return to their Wrigley Field den for the next three games starting Friday night. The Cubs hadn't won in the Series since beating Detroit 8-7 in 1945 to force Game 7.

Clinton hops aboard the Jay train to Cleveland

While Hillary Clinton awaits Barack Obama’s torch passing of the presidency, one thing she needs to secure in order to get it is the Black vote. So, after being defeated by Obama for the nod in ’08, she’s now studying moves from the president’s playbook and has asked to borrow his trump card. Nope, not the strategically carved chop stick he pulls out of his back pocket to cut The Donald down to size whenever he sees fit… We’re talking Jay-Z here! Jigga…Hov…You know…Beyoncé’s husband? Of course you do.

Ohio GOP Chair to vote Trump

"I will be supporting a straight Republican ticket – starting with Donald Trump for President," (Chairman Matt Borges) wrote in an email to Ohio Republican insiders, which was obtained by The Enquirer. "A Hillary Clinton presidency would be a disaster for our country." "Chairman Matt Borges... helped the Trump campaign set up in swing-state Ohio after the New York billionaire secured the nomination. In a statement to The Enquirer (given late last week), Borges, a possible candidate for national GOP chairman, said he had chosen Trump after taking some time to consider developments from the past week or two. "The prospect of her winning is just unacceptable to me," Borges said of Clinton. The

Cleveland is that ‘Shinny City’ upon a hill

A City upon a Hill is a phrase from the parable of Salt and Light in Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. In Matthew 5:14, he tells his listeners, "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden." There isn’t a Hollywood scriptwriter that could have imagined this. There isn’t a prophecy that has predicted it. Yes, of all the cities in America, of all the places in the world Cleveland, Ohio has morphed into what is now that place President Reagan described in his farewell address as that “Shinny City” upon a hill. Sports and its professional teams have a unique way of identifying and connecting a city. For decades the city of Cleveland has been cast as a darken place o

Indians silence Blue Jays, headed to first World Series since '97

TORONTO – The Cleveland Indians are headed to the World Series after they culminated their amazing story by using a rookie starter, a lights-out bullpen, just enough power and what is turning into a managing job for the ages to win the AL pennant. On Wednesday, the Indians beat the Blue Jays, 3-0, to take the American League Championship Series in five games. Incredibly and befitting of their resourcefulness, it was rookie Ryan Merritt who led them in Game 5. Who is Ryan Merritt you may be asking? He is a 24-year-old junk-balling lefty from McKinney, Texas, who, prior to helping the Indians reach the World Series had thrown a grand total of 11 major league innings. With the Rogers Centre pla

Blue Jays stave off ALCS elimination, beat Indians 5-1

TORONTO (AP) -- Just in time, Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays broke out the bats to save their season. Now they have a chance to really make things interesting in this AL Championship Series. Donaldson backed up his fiery pep talk to teammates before the game, hitting a home run and turning in a timely diving stop Tuesday to help the Blue Jays avert a sweep with a 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians. The Indians still lead the matchup 3-1, but with a couple of big hits and a strong outing by Aaron Sanchez, Toronto handed them their first loss of this postseason. "I'm not going to give too much away of what I had to say, but just more so getting everybody's attention and focus and und
