    BALTIMORE -- Donald Trump is partaking in one of the nations most storied football rivalries, saluting U.S. troops at the annual Army-Navy game on Saturday as he prepares to enter the White House.The future commander in chief attended the 117th game between the military academies at West Point and Annapolis, which is being held on relatively neutral ground, in Baltimore, Maryland.Trump tweeted on Saturday morning that he was going to the game as a show of support for our Armed Forces. He planned to spend the first half of the game in the box of David Urban, a West Point graduate and Republican adviser and the second half in the box of retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, a graduate of Annapolis.A Trump transition official said Trump would not formally switch sides at halftime in the traditional symbol of commander in chief neutrality because he is not the sitting president. The team member spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the president-elects plans. Trump is a 1964 graduate of the New York Military Academy near West Point.Before the game, Trump met with Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a leading contender for secretary of state. Trumps pick to lead the State Department is among his most significant decisions and the deliberations have become a source of tension within his transition team, with chief of staff Reince Priebus said to be backing Mitt Romney while other advisers oppose the idea of selecting the 2012 GOP nominee, given his fierce criticism of Trump during the campaign.Tillerson, who has led Exxon Mobil since 2006, and also met Trump earlier in the week.In addition to Romney, Trump has also been considering Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.Trump announced Friday that Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who was an early favorite, was no longer under consideration.Trumps appearance at the football game was capping off a week of rolling out Cabinet picks, holding thank you rallies in North Carolina, Iowa and Michigan, and trying to cement his incoming Senate majority with Saturdays runoff election in Louisiana.The incoming president appeared jovial and relaxed as he plunged back into electoral politics on Friday, a full month after he won the presidency. He held large-scale events in Louisiana and in Michigan, where he regaled supporters in Grand Rapids by reciting his victories in battleground states.Trump is the first Republican to win Michigan since George H.W. Bush in 1988. He attributed his feat to failures by Democrats.In private, people close to Trump said he was expected to name yet another Goldman Sachs executive to his White House team. The president-elects National Economic Council is to be led by Gary Cohn, president and chief operating officer of the Wall Street bank, which Trump repeatedly complained during the election campaign would control Hillary Clinton if she won.---Associated Press writers Lisa Lerer, Julie Pace, Julie Bykowicz and Lolita Baldor in Washington and Thomas Beaumont in Des Moines, Iowa contributed.---Reach Thomas on Twitter at www.twitter.com/KThomasDC A.J.

Chris Banjo Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. CLEVELAND -- Corey Kluber moved the Cleveland Indians one step closer to the AL Central title while eliminating the reigning World Series champions from the race.Kluber allowed two runs and struck out nine in 6 1/3 innings, and the Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals 4-3 on Wednesday night.The Indians, who lead Detroit by 7 1/2 games, reduced their magic number for clinching the Central to five.Its what we work for all offseason, spring training play games early on to have this chance come September, Kluber said. We know were in a good spot, but were not looking ahead. We have a lot of work to do.Carlos Santana was 4 for 5 with an RBI single in the eighth. Jose Ramirez drove in the go-ahead run in the fifth with his third double of the game.Kluber (18-9) matched his career high in wins and is 10-1 in his last 14 starts, strengthening his case to win his second AL Cy Young Award in three years.Cody Allen allowed Salvador Perezs leadoff homer in the ninth, but recorded his 28th save in 31 opportunities. Catcher Roberto Perez threw out pinch-runner Terrance Gore trying to steal second for the first out and Allen retired the final two batters.Perez pumped his fist after throwing out Gore, who was successful on all 17 of his career regular season stolen base attempts going into the game.I was excited, said Perez, who credited Allen for making a quick delivery to the plate. You know nobody has thrown him out.That was huge, Allen said. He bailed me out. That changes the whole dynamic of the inning. That was a big-time play.Ian Kennedy (11-10) allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings and lost for the first time since July 25.The Royals reached the World Series in each of the last two years and defeated the Mets in five games to win their first title since 1985 last season.Kansas City wwas favored to repeat as division champions, but dealt with injuries to key players all season.dddddddddddde cant do anything about it now, Salvador Perez said. Were going to continue to play hard until the end, no matter what happens.Lonnie Chisenhalls RBI single put Cleveland ahead in the second. Run-scoring singles by Kendrys Morales and Perez gave Kansas City the lead in the third when the Royals strung together four straight two-out hits.Santana doubled to start the fifth and scored the tying run on Jason Kipnis double. Ramirezs double to center broke the tie.Klubers hot stretch has come at an opportune time for Clevelands rotation, which is without Carlos Carrasco (broken right hand) and Danny Salazar (strained right forearm).Hes so consistent that hes the same guy every five days, Indians manager Terry Francona said. I mean that as the biggest compliment you can give somebody.ROAD BACK?Salazar, who hasnt pitched in a game since Sept. 9, played catch at 75 feet Tuesday. He could be used in the bullpen if the Indians make the postseason.Im feeling better -- way better, he said. It feels good just to be able to throw a little bit. Im really positive about it.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Carrasco has been fitted with a soft cast. He was struck by Ian Kinslers line drive Saturday.UP NEXTRoyals: LHP Jason Vargas returned from Tommy John surgery and pitched three innings Saturday against the White Sox -- his first appearance since July 21, 2015 -- allowing one run.Indians: RHP Mike Clevinger, who will be in the rotation down the stretch, starts the series finale.
