CLEVELAND (AP) — Trevor Bauer, starting in place of an ill Danny Salazar, allowed one run in eight innings and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Los Angeles Angels 3-1 on Friday night. Bauer (10-10) won for the second time in nine starts. He replaced Salazar, who was scratched because of a virus. Bauer allowed five hits and struck out seven. Jason Kipnis, the American League's leading hitter (.324), drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning single to cap a three-run rally. Cody Allen worked a perfect ninth for his 27th save.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians pitcher Danny Salazar was scratched from his scheduled start last night against the Angels because of a virus. Salazar will instead start Monday against Toronto. Manager Terry Francona said Salazar became ill on Tuesday and missed a couple of days of his routine between starts, losing five to six pounds. The Indians decided on Thursday to push Salazar back in the rotation.
MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio high school football team that's had a live tiger cub at games for decades has kicked off the season with its traditional mascot, even though the boosters haven't proved they'd meet stricter state rules for keeping exotic animals. The Independent reports that boosters for Massillon's Washington High School displayed a cub in a cage at Thursday's game against Perry.
