    CLEVELAND -- The Indians put on a historic base-stealing display Friday night -- at the Angels expense.Rajai Davis and Jose Ramirez each stole three bases to help Cleveland tie the franchise record with eight and the Indians routed Los Angeles 13-3.Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor added steals for Cleveland to match the record that was first accomplished on Aug. 27, 1917, against the Washington Senators. The eight steals allowed also are the most in club history for the Angels.You have to trust your instincts and go, said Davis, the American League leader with 31 steals. Theres something you look for and go off that.Our baserunning set the tone, Indians manager Terry Francona said. We had hits to get on. We stole bases. We just didnt run with abandon. We were intelligent.Brandon Guyer, who had five RBI, homered in the second and had two-run singles in the fifth and eighth. Ramirez was 3 for 5 with a home run -- extending his hitting streak to 16 games -- and Kipnis was 4 for 5 for the AL Central leaders.Carlos Carrasco (8-6) allowed three runs in seven innings and won for the first time since July 20.Tyler Skaggs (1-1) gave up seven runs in five innings for the Angels. Albert Pujols drove in two runs and Kole Calhoun homered.Los Angeles has lost eight in a row, its longest losing streak since 1999.The Indians ran wild on the combination of Skaggs and catcher Geovanny Soto. Davis stole second and third and scored in the first. Ramirez duplicated the feat in the fourth.Davis and Ramirez each stole second in the fifth, and Kipnis swiped second in the first.Skaggs, making his fourth start of the season, took the blame for the steals.Its a mixture of a lot of things, all of them my fault, he said. Definitely slow to the plate. This loss is on me today. I got to be better.It seemed like it kind of affected him on the mound, Davis said. His pitches -- I dont know the locations they were in -- but it seemed like Kip was getting some good pitches to hit. And he usually hits good pitches really well.Lindor stole second in the sixth with Deolis Guerra pitching. Sotos throw sailed into center field, allowing Kipnis to score. Ramirez, Kipnis and Lindor each drove in two runs.Indians designated hitter Carlos Santana didnt play after being hit in the head by a foul ball while standing in the dugout Thursday.

Chelsea were brushed aside 3-0 by Manchester City on Saturday as they suffered a second consecutive Premier League loss and the first at home for interim manager Hiddink across his two spells in charge.The performance at Stamford Bridge was described by Graeme Souness as bordering on disgraceful, with the Sky Sports football pundit suggesting the club needs a summer clear-out. Even centre-half Gary Cahill said his team-mates should have more pride on the pitch and at least run around and try to get close to people.Asked if his players were saving themselves for the Euros in June, Hiddink told the Daily Mirror: Partly true, but I cannot blame the players for having a lack of attitude.
