CLEVELAND -- Following Clevelands comeback, there was more emotion than usual in the Indians clubhouse. Ryan Switzer Cowboys Jersey . Vinnie Pestano is on the move -- to the minors. As reporters spoke to Ryan Raburn, whose pinch-hit, two-run single in the eighth inning rallied the Indians to their sixth straight win, 7-4 over the freefalling Chicago White Sox, Pestano, the clubs popular setup man, stood near his locker with a stunned look on his face. Several of Pestanos teammates approached the right-hander, who stopped packing his bags to share hugs with Chris Perez, Jason Giambi and others. Asked what was going on, Pestano told reporters to speak with manager Terry Francona or general manager Chris Antonetti. Pestano will be optioned Wednesday to Triple-A Columbus, a somewhat stunning move for the Indians, who acquired left-hander Marc Rzepczynski from St. Louis before the game. Pestano has struggled this season -- 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA in 34 games -- and had one stint on the disabled list but had been pitching better lately. Antonetti hinted the Indians may make another move before Wednesdays deadline, saying before the game that "theres a lot that can happen in the next 24 hours." In the meantime, the Indians are rolling. They moved 10 games over .500 and won their ninth straight at Progressive Field. Raburn, batting for Jason Giambi, who won Monday nights game with a pinch-hit homer in the ninth, singled off Matt Lindstrom with two outs as the Indians stormed back and won for the 11th time in 15 games. "I got a pitch I was able to do something with and was able to get a hit up the middle," said Raburn, downplaying his latest clutch hit. Raburn is batting .349 (22 of 63) with 22 RBIs with two outs. Hes also hitting .462 (12 of 26) with four homers and 19 RBIs with runners in scoring position this season. "Im just trying to get a good pitch to hit, not try to do too much," said Raburn, who signed with the Indians as a free agent after a rough 2012 season with Detroit. "You have to realize the pressure is on the pitcher to get an out so you just go up there and battle. Its one of those things where I couldnt do nothing right last year but now I almost cant do nothing wrong." Yan Gomes added a two-run single in the eighth as the Indians stayed within 2 1-2 game of first-place Detroit in the AL Central. The Indians were in danger of losing to Brazilian rookie Andre Rienzo in his debut before coming back against Donnie Veal (1-2), who started the eighth. Clevelands comeback spoiled a solid outing by Rienzo, who started in place of Jake Peavy. Rienzo, the first Brazilian-born player to pitch in the major leagues, did not allow an earned and only five hits in seven innings. "It was fun seeing him pitch," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "The end stunk but he did well." Bryan Shaw (2-2) got one out in the eighth and closer Chris Perez worked the ninth for his 15th save -- and ninth straight. Rienzo was recalled earlier in the day from the minors as the White Sox pushed back Peavys start one day in case they were able to trade him before Wednesdays deadline. They worked out a deal late Tuesday night, sending Peavy to the Boston Red Sox as part of a three-team deal that included the Tigers. In exchange for Peavy, Chicago received outfielder Avisail Garcia from Detroit as well as minor league infielder Cleulius Rondon and pitchers Francelis Montas and Jeffery Wendelken from the Red Sox. Adam Dunn drove in two runs for the White Sox, who dropped 24 games under .500 for the first time since Sept. 29, 1989. Trailing 4-3, the Indians scored four runs in the eighth. Veal gave up a one-out single to Asdrubal Cabrera, and one out later, Carlos Santana singled. Pinch-runner Drew Stubbs stole second before Raburn, who has been clutch all season for Francona, singled to centre off Lindstrom to make it 5-4. After Lonnie Chisenhall singled, Gomes came through with his double. With Peavy in waiting mode before he was traded, Rienzo gave the White Sox a glimpse of their future. The right-hander seemed unfazed in facing one of baseballs hottest teams. He was only in trouble once, when the Indians scored three times in the fifth to tie it. But Rienzo quickly shook it off and was in position to get a win before the Indians came back against Chicagos bullpen. Along with dangling Peavy, the White Sox have reportedly shopped outfielder Alex Rios. He left in the eighth after fouling a pitch off his left foot. Rios will undergo X-rays, but he doesnt believe the injury is serious. The White Sox took a 4-3 lead in the sixth on Dayan Viciedos two-out RBI single. Cleveland starter Scott Kazmir allowed four runs and nine hits in five-plus innings. Staked to a 3-0 lead, Rienzo looked poised while making history as Brazils first big-league pitcher. In the third, he faced Indians catcher and fellow countryman Gomes, who dribbled a single through the middle for Clevelands second hit. Once he reached first, the Indians catcher shared a smile with Rienzo, who moments later tried to pick his friend from Brazils national team off the bag. Rienzo showed his full repertoire in the fourth, striking out Nick Swisher, All-Star Jason Kipnis and Cabrera on just 11 pitches. He started off Cabrera with two curves before blowing a high fastball past Clevelands shortstop. However, Rienzo was hurt by two walks in the fifth, when the Indians scored three unearned runs to tie it 3-all. The White Sox gave Rienzo an early cushion, scoring two runs in the first and one in the second to take some pressure him. Dunn hit a two-out, two-run double in the first as Chicago ended Clevelands streak of scoring first at 16 games, a franchise record. In the second, Gordon Beckham ended a 0-for-20 slide with a one-out double and scored when Josh Phegley ended a 0-for-14 slump with an RBI single. NOTES: Giambi was awed to learn his homer Monday was historic. The 42-year-old passed Hank Aaron as the oldest player to ever hit a walk-off homer. "Thats pretty unbelievable," Giambi said of breaking Aarons mark. "Its unfathomable. Im just grateful, and I thank God Im still playing, to have this opportunity to be here." Giambi was 45 days older than Aaron, who hit his 754th career homer on July 11, 1976, for Milwaukee. ... Indians RHP Josh Tomlin, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery last August, is ahead of schedule. Francona said its "possible" Tomlin could pitch for Cleveland in September. Ryan Switzer Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. Jourdan Lewis Youth Jersey .Y. -- Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers had no intention of changing his hard-hitting style before taking part in a disciplinary hearing for his illegal check to New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus head. http:///...er-Authentic-Jersey/ . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. TORONTO -- Dean Lombardi pounded the table and tried to explain it all.His eyes darting back and forth, the Team USA general manager tried to explain the Americans unexpected and disappointing early exit from the World Cup of Hockey.Along the way, Lombardi blamed himself for plenty.The hockey veteran with two Stanley Cup rings said he would have done four or five things differently, most notably preparing his team to face Team Europe and not focus on Canada. But Lombardi defended the decision not to take more skilled players like Phil Kessel because he believes the U.S. couldnt match Canadas depth of talent so it tried to win the tournament another way.We got some darn good players, but the reality is, that matchup on a skill basis, if you want to go head-to-head and play a skill game, your odds of winning that game when you look at those matchups is not very good, Lombardi said during an extensive state of the team news conference Thursday, not long before the Americans played their final game of the tourney. I think that our game allows emotion, competitiveness, caring about each other (to) close that gap more than any other sport.Lombardi criticized himself, his management group, coach John Tortorella and his staff for not getting players more prepared to face Europe in the opener, a 3-0 loss that made the second game against Canada a must win. Tortorella criticized himself for not finding the right mixes of players to generate offense.But the old-school GM and old-school coach werent backing down from the team they selected and the style they chose to play. Lombardi said he wanted 22 guys who care and insisted he doesnt believe Kessel belonged more than some of the other forwards on the roster.If youre talking about Justin Abdelkader, Blake Wheeler, Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Kesler, David Backes, Ill take those guys any day on my team, Lombardi said. Those guys have big-time heart and when I talk about caring, theyd be the nucleus of the caring and they compete and they can play for me any day.Kessel, Tyler Johnson, Kyle Okposo, Justin Faulk, Kevin Shattenkirk and Cam Fowler didnt play in the World Cup for the U.S., which scored two goals in two games before being eliminated from contention. Patrick Kane, Joe Pavelski, Max Pacioretty and Zach Parise were on the team and combined for zero goals and two assists.Tortorella said USA Hockey has to take its medicine and accepted blame. But hes tired of the second-guessing about roster decisions.Im not going to sit here annd let people tell me this team was a bunch of grinders, because its not true, Tortorella said. Chidobe Awuzie Jersey. Im not going to say that we shouldve blown up this whole situation on how we built this team because I think we have really good people there.After losing to Canada at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics, the U.S. made no secret of its focus on Canada. The 2010 team that was one goal away from beating Canada for gold in Vancouver on NHL-sized ice provided the blueprint in 2016, though several of those players were of course six years older.Players on every team called Canada the favorite, but the U.S. was alone in constructing a team with the two-time Olympic and world championship winners in mind.We clearly put an emphasis on that from day one, Lombardi said. What could we have done better here to raise our emotional levels. I think for sure, if you were coming here to win this thing, it clearly goes through Canada.Canada beat the U.S. 4-2 Tuesday in a game that wasnt as close as the score. It wasnt nearly as competitive as two exhibition games against Canada, which Lombardi said mightve had too much of an impact as Tortorella constantly tinkered with his lineup.Line juggling prevented the Americans from developing any real chemistry. But Lombardi was more concerned about players not being mentally ready for or respecting Team Europe in the first game and looking ahead to Canada.I think even the connotation was `Europe, so it wasnt a real team, Lombardi said. It was kind of like, its not the same as when youre going up against this is what these tournaments are all about, and thats the nationalism factor. I think just even the name, you kind of just said, `Ah, lets get through this and get to these guys.Those guys were the Canadians, who went 3-0 and outscored opponents 14-3 in round-robin play and are clear favorites going into the semifinals this weekend. Tortorella doesnt regret making Canada the focus even as the U.S. goes home.We failed, Tortorella said. Our thoughts were right at Canada. Thats who teams have to go through to win. We could not out-skill them, and I have to be honest about that. You have to make adjustments. I thought we did it the right way, I thought Dean did it the right way, but the offensive part falls on me to not getting the combination that worked.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
