    导出博客文章ARLINGTON, Texas -- Corey Klubers second-half surge rolled on, and a trip home
    didnt help Texas left-hander Martin Perez.The Cleveland right-hander pitched six
    strong innings to match a career best with his sixth straight victory and
    Abraham Almonte hit two run-scoring doubles, helping the Indians beat the
    Rangers 12-1 on Friday night in a matchup of division leaders.The Indians
    (73-54) snapped a three-game losing streak, which had tied a season high, and
    pulled within a game of the Rangers (75-54) for the best record in the American
    League a night after losing 9-0 to Texas ace Cole Hamels.Adrian Beltre hit a
    solo homer in the sixth for the AL West-leading Rangers, but Kluber (14-8)
    struck out the other three hitters in his final inning to finish with seven
    strikeouts. The 2014 AL Cy Young winner has a 1.75 ERA during a winning streak
    that covers nine starts -- eight since the All-Star break.I dont think theres
    one magic thing that I can put my finger on, said Kluber, who also won six
    straight in his Cy Young season. Just a matter of going out there and trying to
    be consistent. Hope that allows me to be in a good spot when its my turn.Almonte
    drove in four runs in his first multi-RBI game of the season, including a
    two-run double past diving center fielder Ian Desmond in left-center to give the
    AL Central leaders a 6-0 lead in the sixth.Jason Kipnis opened the scoring with
    an RBI double in the third against Perez (8-10), who lost at home for the first
    time since May 13 and dropped to 1-6 with a 6.30 ERA over his past 10
    starts.Perez, who is 1-8 with a 6.23 ERA on the road, dropped to 7-2 at home
    after winning six straight decisions in Arlington. He gave up 10 hits and six
    runs in 5 2/3 innings.You dont have to get frustrated over four or five games,
    Perez said. Thats how you learn. Just come back tomorrow and work tomorrow.
    Forget this game.Roberto Perez, Clevelands No. 9 hitter with a .104 average
    coming in, had four singles and three RBI.Texas designated hitter Carlos Beltran
    went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts, extending his career-worst slump to 0 for
    32.ANY WAY YOU CANClevelands Brandon Guyer scored four runs and was hit by a
    pitch twice, pushing his majors-leading total to 27. Guyer, who came to the
    Indians at the trading deadline from Tampa Bay, was plunked an AL-high 24 times
    last year with the Rays. The first one squared him up; he didnt flinch, manager
    Terry Francona said. I guess you get hit that many times, you get used to
    it.SHORT HOPSThe Indians stopped a three-game losing streak for the seventh time
    this season. ... Almonte and Carlos Santana had three hits apiece, and Almonte
    matched his career high in RBI. He had four against the Los Angeles Angels last
    August. ... Cleveland relievers Bryan Shaw, Cody Allen and Zach McCallister
    combined for six strikeouts over the final three innings, giving Cleveland 13
    for the game. McCallister struck out the side in the ninth.DWI ARRESTTexas
    reliever Jeremy Jeffress wasnt with the team Friday after his overnight arrest
    on a drunken driving charge in Dallas. The 28-year-old right-hander was placed
    on the restricted list, but general manager Jon Daniels expected him to be back
    with the Rangers on Saturday. Lefty reliever Dario Alvarez was recalled from
    Triple-A Round Rock and allowed three runs in 1 2/3 innings.TRAINERS
    ROOMIndians: RF Lonnie Chisenhall sat a day after fouling a pitch off his right
    knee. Francona said he was available as a pinch-hitter and could return to the
    lineup Saturday.UP NEXTIndians: RHP Carlos Carrasco (9-6, 3.12 ERA) pitched
    eight innings in a 1-0 victory at Oakland in his last start. He is 6-3 on the
    road with a 1.74 ERA, the lowest in baseball away from home.Rangers: RHP A.J.
    Griffin (5-3, 4.68) has a 6.69 ERA in his past eight starts. He has allowed at
    least one homer in 11 straight starts, matching the longest streak in franchise
    history (Casey Cox with Washington in 1970).

    without Miguel Cabrera. Prince Fielder, Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter homered,
    and Anibal Sanchez pitched six scoreless innings to help the Tigers overcome
    Cabreras latest absence in a 6-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday
    night. Cabrera, the reigning AL MVP and baseballs first Triple Crown winner in
    45 years last season, left Mondays game in the bottom of the fifth inning with a
    left hip flexor injury. He hasnt played since and might sit out Thursday, too,
    when the Tigers go for a four-game sweep and their fifth straight win. Sanchez
    (8-7) earned his first win since July 6, allowing six hits and striking out
    five. The right-hander had only allowed five earned runs in his previous two
    starts, both losses, but continued Detroits strong starting pitching during the
    series. In three games, Tigers starters have pitched 21 innings and allowed two
    runs, giving the Cabrera-less lineup room to breathe. "We need (Cabrera) on the
    end," Sanchez said. "Hes a big piece of the lineup and we need to try to play
    hard without him." They did just that Wednesday, hitting three homers off John
    Danks (2-8) despite not having Cabrera, who is hitting .358 with 31 homers and
    96 RBIs. "It falls squarely on me. This is no one elses fault. It was just one
    of those nights," Danks said. "There is no other way to explain it, just wasnt
    able to do what I wanted to do. "Thats just the way it goes. I understand what
    happened. I understand adjustments need to be made, and we will work on it."
    Fielder gave the Tigers a 3-0 lead in the first with his 17th home run. Hunter
    reached on a fielders choice, and Matt Tuiasosopo walked before Fielder hit a
    1-0 pitch into deep right-centre field for his first homer since July 10. Danks
    retired the first two batters in the second before Jackson hooked the first
    pitch around the foul pole in left to make it 4-0. In the fifth, Hunter hit his
    ninth homer to give Detroit a 5-0 lead. Hunter went 2 for 5, improving to .354
    in July. Over three games against left-handed starters Chris Sale, Hector
    Santiago, and Danks, Detroit has scored 11 earned runs. "Well, I mean, yeah, we
    did a good job," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "Prince has hit lefties real
    good. He got us off to a great start." That was enough to propel Sanchez and
    Detrroit past Chicago, which dropped to 20 games below .dddddddddddd500 for the
    first time Sept. 26, 2007. The White Sox are a season-high 16 games out of first
    place. Danks lost his second straight start and is winless since July 2. He
    worked seven innings and matched his season high by giving up six runs along
    with 11 hits -- including the three home runs to give him 17 allowed this season
    in 12 starts. "It was a tough game. Kind of a frustrating game," Danks said.
    "Hard to make the ball do what I wanted it to and hard to get it where I wanted
    it to be." Nights like Wednesday are why the White Sox are expected to be
    sellers before the July 31 trade deadline. "There are a lot of things floating
    out there that make it more difficult for guys to just play baseball," Ventura
    said. "I think subconsciously it is in there. Whether you like to think so or
    not, its there, because everything is floating out there. Ill be glad when it
    turns August." By then, Cabrera should be back for the Tigers. Not that they
    need to rush him back the way the offence has been without him. "Thats good
    because that gives him more chance to recover (from) the soreness hes got,"
    Sanchez said. NOTES: RHP Jair Jurrjens signed a Triple-A contract and will join
    Detroits affiliate Toledo on Friday. Jurrjens started his career with the Tigers
    in 2007 and spent five seasons with Atlanta before signing with Baltimore. He
