    ANAHEIM, Calif. [b]Cubs Albert Almora Jr Jersey[/b] . -- Drew Stubbs hit a two-run homer in the 14th inning, and the Cleveland Indians outlasted the Los Angeles Angels 4-1 Tuesday night to gain ground in the AL playoff race. Lonnie Chisenhall got the Indians going with a one-out single in the 14th off Joe Blanton (2-14), the Angels seventh pitcher. Stubbs, the Indians No. 9 hitter, was 0 for 4 with a walk before connecting for his first homer since July 4. Michael Bourn then singled and scored from second on Blantons throwing error for the Angels, who have lost eight of 10. Los Angeles stranded 17 runners -- 13 after the sixth inning, including two in the final frame. Carlos Santana hit a tying homer in the seventh for the Indians, who managed just four hits in the first 12 innings. But with 13 consecutive scoreless innings thrown by nine pitchers -- thats everybody in the bullpen -- Cleveland pulled within 5 1/2 games of AL Central leader Detroit and 3 1/2 games of wild-card leader Oakland after both teams lost earlier. Carlos Carrasco (1-4) pitched the final two innings, setting off cheers in a small group of hearty fans behind Clevelands dugout when he got Chris Nelson on a comebacker with two runners on to end the 5-hour, 17-minute game. J.B. Shuck hit a leadoff homer more than five hours before the final out, but the Angels couldnt score again despite 12 hits. The Angels outpitched the Indians group until they got to Blanton, who leads the AL with 29 homers allowed in his miserable season -- even though he lost his spot in Los Angeles rotation last month. C.J. Wilson yielded four hits and a run while pitching into the eighth inning of a superb start for the Angels, striking out five. But rookie Danny Salazar pitched three-hit ball into the sixth inning in his fourth major league start for Cleveland, and his bullpen was impenetrable. Mike Trout sat out his second straight game for Los Angeles, resting his tight right hamstring. Wilson kept the Indians down until Santana led off the seventh with his 15th homer. Peter Bourjos lost his glove over the wall while trying to make the catch -- so the Angels centre fielder scaled the wall, leaped over to get the glove back and climbed back onto the field. Both teams had ample opportunities to score late, and the Indians made several remarkable escapes. Wilson and reliever Dane De La Rosa walked the bases loaded in the eighth, but De La Rosa struck out Yan Gomes to end it. Josh Hamilton then got picked off second base in the eighth, preventing Kole Calhouns single from driving him home moments later. The Angels stranded two more runners in the ninth when Asdrubal Cabrera made an impressive play on Erick Aybars grounder at shortstop to force extra innings. Hamilton, Trumbo and Calhoun loaded the bases with nobody out in the 10th, but relievers Matt Albers, Rich Hill and Bryan Shaw each got one out, with Shaw striking out Grant Green. The Angels then got two runners on with two outs in the 12th, but Bourn leaped to rob Hank Conger of an extra-base hit off the centre-field wall. Los Angeles much-maligned bullpen retired 10 straight batters before Santana drew a two-out walk in the 13th and hustled to third on Gomes single to left, but Cabrera flied out. NOTES: Trout got hurt during Sundays loss to Houston, forcing him to miss consecutive games for the first time in the past two seasons. The All-Star outfielder had skipped just one game all season before this series. ... Juan Gutierrez pitched two hitless extra innings for Los Angeles, but didnt get his first victory since Sept. 9, 2009. Gutierrezs stretch of 127 2-3 innings for Arizona, Kansas City and the Angels without a victory is the majors longest active streak. ... With two off days in the next week, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said hell "make some adjustments" to the Angels starting rotation. Jerome Williams, who hasnt won since June 12, will still start Wednesday against Clevelands 13-game winner, Justin Masterson. ... Angels C Chris Iannetta snapped an 0-for-13 skid with a seventh-inning single, but Bourjos went hitless in six at-bats to drop to 0 for 18 since his return from a broken right wrist.

"I was prepared to get hit," Harvick said. "Its the last lap, and thats what youre supposed to do. Kyle Busch isnt my favourite person, but I enjoy racing him." Harvick raced to his first NASCAR Nationwide Series victory of the year and 40th overall, holding off Busch at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday night. Harvick pulled ahead of Busch on the 60th lap and led 132 of the 195 laps. Busch had won six of the previous Nationwide events this year in which he also won the pole. Sam Hornish Jr. was third, followed by Kasey Kahne, rookie Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Trevor Bayne, Austin Dillon, Regan Smith and Brian Scott. On the final lap, Harvick expected that Busch would "bomb it in" for a collision in the middle of the track between Turns 1 and 2, so he hit the brakes in hopes of getting hit squarely enough to hold the car tight and keep the lead. Busch, though, decided to stay clean. "I try not to do those things although my reputation doesnt really perceive it that way," Busch said. "So, I essentially screwed up. If I would have went to the middle again, I probably could have made up ground on him and tried something in (Turn) 3. You live and learn. You learn for tomorrow." The victory marked a redemption of sorts for Harvick, who lost the lead on the final lap last year in the Nationwide event at Atlanta when Brad Keselowski bumped Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the front straightaway and Stenhouse went ahead for good in Turn 3. Harvick finished third last year. He has made seven starts this year, and hasnt finished lower than fifth in his last six events. Harvick accused Stenhouse last year of throwing a water bottle out of his car tto cause a late caution. [b]Cubs Pedro Strop Jersey[/b]. With that bitter memory in mind, Harvick crew chief Ernie Cope made sure to save a fresh set of tires in case of another late caution. When Jeff Green crashed into the outside wall on lap 182, causing the fourth and final caution that allowed the leaders to change tires, Copes strategy paid off. "If the caution comes out and youve got more than three laps on your tires, youre probably going to put them on," Cope said. "The tires are just huge. At this place, they fall off big time. We had two sets to go, and we pitted with 50 to go. We couldve made it on gas, but if we pitted again we were going to put them on." When the race restarted, Busch moved past Kahne and was side by side with Harvick with six laps to go. Busch was a single car length back with three laps to go, but Harvick wouldnt let him get low and never relinquished the lead. "There at the end we were a touch too tight, but we were in control of the race from the restart and able to control the bottom and do what we needed to do," Harvick said. "He had a great car on long runs." Busch was trying to win a Nationwide event at Atlanta for the first time. He has won one Sprint Cup race and four Truck races, but now has five runner-up Nationwide finishes at Atlanta. Busch has nine Nationwide victories this year. "For the last restart, we even made changes to free up our race car, and it just wasnt enough," Busch said. "It was too tight, even there, to make any runs on the outside of Kevin. I had one run on him through 1 and 2 and he blocked me up to the fence. I had to lift so I didnt wreck. But it is what it is. Its just racing, I guess." In the Nationwide points race, series leader Hornish moved 10 points ahead of Dillon. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseyscheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
