Former Phillies and Red Sox manager Terry Francona, now the newest Cleveland skipper, made an error in his first home game with the Indians. He got lost making the two-block walk from his apartment to Progressive Field and had to ask for directions. Eventually, a team employee picked him up in a golf cart. Can't blame him. When his father, Indians star Tito - who threw out the ceremonial first pitch - played in Cleveland (and when Terry had a late 1980s stint there), the Tribe played in Municipal Stadium, a crumbling hulk better known as the "Mistake by the Lake.

Yankees icon strikes back? After taking some Steinbrenner flak during the spring about his building a new house, with the implication that he no longer cares about winning, New York shortstop Derek Jeter has new walk-up music: Darth Vader's theme from Star Wars .

Indians second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera turned the 14th unassisted tripleplay in major league history, accomplishing the feat last night in the second game of a doubleheader against Toronto. Cabrera made a diving catch on a line drive by Lyle Overbay, touched second base and then tagged out Marco Scutaro to quickly end the fifth inning of what became a 3-0 win by the visiting Blue Jays in 10 innings. The 22-year-old Cabrera's only miscue was not keeping the ball. "He flipped it into the stands and right as he did cried out, 'Oh, no!

Justin Verlander pitched the Detroit Tigers closer to a division title and pushed the Cleveland Indians within one loss of matching a franchise record for futility with a 6-5 win last night. Verlander struck out 11 in seven innings and Carlos Guillen had three hits and an RBI as the Tigers handed Cleveland its 11th straight loss. With the win, Detroit moved three games ahead of the idle Minnesota Twins in the American League's Central Division. The Tigers, who have 10 games remaining, open a three-game series at the Chicago White Sox tonight.

The Buck stops in Baltimore Buck Showalter is taking on the toughest task of his managerial career - rebuilding the Baltimore Orioles, who sport the majors' worst record and are headed toward a 13th straight losing season. Showalter is a two-time AL manager of the year, winning the award in 1994 with the New York Yankees and 2004 with Texas. The 54-year-old also was the first manager in the history of the Arizona Diamondbacks. His overall record is 882-833 in 11 years.

  Crashers with bats ruin pitchers' dignified affair Two outs into the bottom of the seventh, it was a scoreless pitchers' duel. Then the dam broke in a spectacular way. You can blame Mariners second baseman Chone Figgins for jump-starting the Indians' offense in Cleveland on Sunday with an error. He booted a two-hopper and threw wide of first to allow Luis Valbuena to reach base at Progressive Field. The highlight of Cleveland's seven-run burst that inning was a grand slam by designated hitter Travis Hafner the day he returned from the disabled list.

Cliff Lee became Cleveland's first 20-game winner in 34 years, pitching a five-hitter for his second career shutout to lead the Indians to a 5-0 win over the visiting Chicago White Sox last night. Lee (20-2) is the first Indians pitcher to reach 20 wins since Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry went 21-13 in 1974. The lefthander's milestone win - his ninth straight victory - came exactly 1 year to the day that he was recalled from the minor leagues. With a chance to join Perry as well as fellow Hall of Famers Bob Feller and Bob Lemon in Cleveland's record book as 20-game winners, Lee shut down the hard-hitting, Central-leading White Sox with ease.

Everybody is pitching in for the surging Texas Rangers. C.J. Wilson and two relievers combined for the Rangers' sixth shutout in their last 20 games, and Texas beat the Indians yesterday, 2-0, for its first four-game sweep in Cleveland in nearly 33 years. "That's three shutouts [in five games] on the trip against pretty good teams," manager Ron Washington said. Mitch Moreland and Elvis Andrus homered as AL West-leading Texas wrapped up a 6-1 trip to Tampa Bay and Cleveland, and won for the eighth time in nine games overall.

CLEVELAND - While his teammates around him ate, dressed and put the finishing touches on their workday, Roy Halladay sat in the center of the room with a furrowed brow and stared. Nearly a half-hour after last night's ugly, 14-2 defeat to the Cleveland Indians became final, Halladay's in-game focus had carried over to the middle of the visiting clubhouse at Progressive Field. Without a video room for the visiting team, Halladay was in the middle of the quiet room, looking at a computer screen and intensely scrutinizing his abbreviated outing that went awry early and never got right.

CLEVELAND - The Indians sat in first place when, on the cool and pleasant evening of June 20, they opened a series with the Colorado Rockies at Progressive Field. Despite the good record and weather, and even though interleague play typically produces a crowd bump, Northern Ohio's tortured sports fans were unmoved. The Indians, then last in baseball attendance, drew just 15,224 spectators to the 8-7 loss. Perhaps Clevelanders suspected the success was a first-half illusion.

CLEVELAND - Austin Kearns hit his first homer in 105 at-bats this season, a stunning three-run shot in the seventh inning off New York's A.J. Burnett, sending Cleveland to a 6-3 win and spoiling Derek Jeter's return to the Yankee lineup. Jeter was back at shortstop and again atop the batting order for the first time since June 13, when he went on the disabled list with a calf injury. New York's captain went 0 for 4 and remained six shy of becoming the first Yankees player to reach 3,000 hits.

CLEVELAND - Scott Baker survived a shaky start, and Matt Tolbert drove in two runs as the Minnesota Twins extended their season-high winning streak to five games with a 6-4 win Monday night over the falling-fast Cleveland Indians, who lost their fifth in a row. Baker (3-4) was down by 2-0 after throwing just four pitches as the Indians hit screaming line drives all over Progressive Field in the first. However, the righthander bobbed and weaved his way around trouble and stayed in until the eighth.
