CLEVELAND -- Justin Masterson was quick to pass along credit for Clevelands eighth straight victory to the guy he provided him all the support he needed in a 6-1 decision over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. Kosuke Fukudome Cubs Jersey . "The storys about Ryan Raburn doing his thing," Masterson said. "That was pretty cool to see." Raburn homered twice and drove in four runs as the Indians, who have won 13 of 17, completed a four-game sweep of the reeling White Sox. Raburn, who has played a major role off manager Terry Franconas bench, hit a two-run homer in the third, had an RBI single in the fifth and belted a leadoff home run in the seventh. He has 13 homers and 37 RBIs in 173 at-bats while playing mostly against left-handed starters. "I prepare myself the same way every day whether Im playing or not," Raburn said. "This is one of those years where everything is going right for me. Im trying to hold on to it and ride it as long as I can." Francona pushed for Clevelands front office to sign Raburn, even though he batted .171 with 12 RBIs in 66 games with Detroit last season. He began the season as the Tigers second baseman but things quickly regressed and he was benched before being sent to the minors. "He got off to a horrendous start and never really recovered," Francona said. "That happens to a lot of players. We were able to get him because of that. In the role hes in, he does a great job." The Indians, who have beaten the White Sox eight straight times, moved to within two games of idle Detroit in the American League Central. "Credit them," Chicago manager Robin Ventura said. "They just outplayed us. Today is probably magnified because of what happened earlier in the series." Cleveland also swept a four-game series in Chicago from June 28-30. Chicago has dropped seven in a row and is 26 games under .500 for the first time since 1980. The White Sox have lost 13 of 16 and have the second-worst record in the AL. The Indians, who are a season-high 12 games over .500, won all seven games of their homestand, which began with a three-game sweep against Texas. Cleveland outscored the opposition 40-20 during the seven-game stretch. Masterson outpitched Chris Sale (6-11) in a matchup of All-Star hurlers. Masterson (13-7) gave up one run in 6 2-3 innings and has won all four of his starts against Chicago this season, allowing three earned runs in 31 2-3 innings. Raburns home run off Sale in the third was towering fly ball to right that was pushed by the wind and curled inside the foul pole. He added an RBI single in the Indians two-run fifth and hit a leadoff homer off Dylan Axelrod in the seventh that landed in the left field bleachers. Mastersons bid for his fourth shutout of the season ended on Alejandro De Azas leadoff homer in the sixth. The right-hander was pulled with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh but Rich Hill got De Aza to hit into a fielders choice. Masterson allowed five hits, struck out seven and walked three. He threw complete game shutouts against the White Sox on April 12 in Cleveland, a five-hitter, and on June 30, a six-hitter at U.S. Cellular Field. Francona said Masterson was battling a stiff neck but the pitcher didnt think that affected him. "I felt all right," Masterson said. "I was leaving a few sinkers out there at times. I was pitching and battling and trying to make things work. The overall sense is we played well as a team." Sale has lost all three of his starts against the Indians this season. The left-hander is 1-9 in his last 11 starts but has a 3.24 ERA in that stretch. Mark Reynolds run-scoring single -- his second RBI since June 29 -- gave Cleveland the lead in the second. Asdrubal Cabrera added a sacrifice fly. NOTES: Indians OF Michael Brantley struck out in all three at-bats against Sale and is 2 for 16 with eight strikeouts against the left-hander this season. ... RHP Vinnie Pestano, optioned to Triple-A Columbus when the Indians acquired LHP Marc Rzepczynski , pitched a scoreless inning against Buffalo on Wednesday. ... Indians OF Michael Bourn, who was 1 for 10 in the series, was not in the starting lineup. All-Star 2B Jason Kipnis also was given the day off. ... Chicago LHP Hector Santiago (3-6) faces Tigers RHP Doug Fister (9-5) on Friday. The clubs play 12 times over the final two months of the season. ...

LOS ANGELES -- As good as the Dodgers have been at home recently, Kenta Maeda hasnt enjoyed the same good fortune.His struggles at Dodger Stadium culminated in a 4-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night that cost Los Angeles its five-game overall winning streak and ended its run of 10 consecutive home victories.Maeda (7-6) gave up a three-run homer to Manny Machado in the fifth inning, helping the Orioles end their five-game skid. The right-hander tied season highs in runs allowed (four) and hits (seven) in four-plus innings, equaling the shortest outing of his career.Maeda struck out five and walked three. He fell to 3-6 in nine home starts this season.Youve got to make major league hitters respect your fastball, Dodgers manager Dave Robert said. He had an opportunity to put guys away and they got back in the count. Its a tough way to live.Maeda came into the game with a 4-2 record and a 2.21 ERA in his last seven starts since May 28.I didnt execute my pitches, he said through a translator. Its more of a control issue rather than a specific pitch.Hitters are capitalizing against Maeda on their third time through the lineup.From the first inning on, it seemed like Kenta was laboring, Roberts said.Machado, a newly named All-Star starter who turns 24 on Wednesday, sent a 2-2 pitch from Maeda into the upper corner of the left-field pavilion, putting the AL East-leading Orioles ahead 4-1. Machados 19th homer would have registered 453 feet had it landed unimpeded, according to Statcast.The Orioles lead the majors with 129 home runs; they had 56 in June.Chris Tillman (11-2) allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, struck out two and walked two while facing the Dodgers for the first time in his career. The right-hander from Anaheim had his career-high nine-game winning streak snapped last week.Zach Britton pitched the ninth to earn his AL-leading 24th save in as many chances. The Dodgers briefly threatened, with Adrian Gonzalezs leadoff single before Yasiel Puig struck out and pinch-hitter Justin Turners long fly was caught at the wall by right fielder Joey Rickard. Howie Kendrick struck out swinging to end the game.Relievers Brad Brach and Britton combined for five strikeouts.The Orioles tied the game 1-all in the second when Jonathan Schooop flied into a forceout from right fielder to shortstop, scoring Mark Trumbo. Dustin May Dodgers Jersey. Dodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager doubled in the first inning, extending his hitting streak to 18 games, the NLs longest this season. He scored on Gonzalezs single, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.Los Angeles didnt muster a hit past the fifth inning.DODGERS ALL-STARSAt 22 years, 69 days, Seager is the youngest position player to be named an All-Star in Dodgers history. Hes the clubs second rookie shortstop to be selected, joining Bill Grabarkewitz in 1970, and the first shortstop since Rafael Furcal in 2010.Closer Kenley Jansen joined Seager as a first-time All-Star in his seventh season and is the teams first reliever to be named since Jonathan Broxton and Hong-Chih Kuo in 2010. Jansen ranks second among NL relievers with 25 saves. He became the Dodgers career saves leader earlier this season.Left-hander Clayton Kershaw became the first Dodger to make six straight All-Star games since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981-86, but hell miss the game in San Diego with a herniated disc. He leads the majors with a 1.79 ERA.URIAS TO MINORSThe Dodgers sent 19-year-old pitcher Julio Urias to Triple-A Oklahoma City after eight starts in an effort to control his innings. The left-hander was 1-2 with a 4.95 ERA after making his big league debut on May 27 at the New York Mets. The team has Urias on an unspecified innings limit this season. He was scheduled to be sent down earlier, but several injuries to the rotation forced an extended stay.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: RHP Darren ODay, on the DL with a right hamstring strain, could pitch a rehab game over next weeks All-Star break. Its not a good injury, Showalter said. If he pushes it, hes going to miss the whole year.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Kevin Gausman (1-6, 3.97 ERA) has received 3.20 runs of support and the team is 5-9 in his 14 starts.Dodgers: RHP Bud Norris (4-7, 3.89) makes his second start since being acquired from Atlanta last week. He pitched for the Orioles from 2013-15, with a 21-20 record and a 4.65 ERA. His best year for the Os was in 2014, when he posted career highs in wins (15) and ERA (3.65). ' ' ' 
Making it clear that he valued Bryan Colangelos skills running the business side of a basketball team, new Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Tim Leiweke said the decision to relieve Colangelo of his basketball decisions, but retain him as team president was arrived at in large part because the two men had "a disagreement on the current status of the organization and this roster. Austin Pruitt Jersey ." Speaking Tuesday on TSN Drive with Dave Naylor, Leiweke pulled no punches in saying he thought the team was not as close to being a contending team as Colangelo and others within MLSE who provided opposition to the decision thought they were. "I guess I dont think that were right there," Leiweke said. "I dont think were a piece away. I think we have work to do. "There was no consensus," he said regarding the decision to begin a search for a new GM. "There were a lot of people with a lot of opinions and a lot of different opinions. Clearly, I had to understand that I was going to make a decision that was not going to please all." Leiweke said creating a management system where both president and GM report to him directly is not ideal, but not totally uncommon in the sports world. He noted his previous structure in Los Angeles with the Kings was similar in that the president of business operations, Luc Robitaille and the president of hockey operations, Dean Lombardi both reported to him. Still, Leiweke admitted it was not the way he would have liked to "draw it up" given a clean slate, but felt like it was the proper way to deal with things considering the situation. He noted Colangelos communication skills and ability to build relationships with sponsors as to why he would be successful in a business operations role. "Hes smart, hes intelligent, hes a good businessman and hes very passionate about the Raptors, very articulate, represents them well and he loves Toronto." In a search for a new general manager, Leiweke said he would welcome Colangelos input given his vast basketball knowledge and background and wouldnt rule out the possibility of having the new hire work with the former GM. Leiweke also made it a point to mention that a "fresh face, with a fresh view of the world, with a fresh view of this roster, with a fresh view of what we need to do to be competitive long term" was something he felt the team was in need of. Not naming any one player directly, he made a point of mentioning he thought Colangelos judgment may have been hindered due to his former ties to his no. 1 overall draft pick in 2006, Andrea Bargnani. "We need someone who is extremely rational when it comes to the roster and reaching conclusions as to who is going to work and who is not going to work," Leiweke said. "Sometimes you have to find a new set of eyes and a new opinion in order to judge a roster. Not be personal about a player because you chose him or you used the first pick in the first round to pick a player. Sometimes its easier for a guy coming in that doesnt have that loyalty and doesnt have that burden of being the guy that made that decision. You reach a better conclusion at times about who needs to stay and who needs to go." He said moving forward the goal is to create a team that is a perennial contender, not one that is simply looking to sneak into a playoff spot. "First and foremost, we have to figure out a way to win, how to win consistently and how to win long term. I referred to it earlier today as being a 7/11 – good enough to maybe be in the seventh or eighth spot and make the playoffs, but never good enough to win." In his search for a new head of basketball operations, Leiweke emphasized the importance of drafting and development and hiring someone who was capable of developing a team identity. "We cannot make bad decisions with draft picks," he said, mentioning teams such as San Antonio and Oklahoma City as the models to strive towards. "The great organizations maximize their draft picks when they get them." Despite the teams struggles, Leiweke said there are candidates that would welcome the chance to come to Toronto given MLSEs resources. Still, besides finding a capable general manager, he thinks the bigger challenge will be changing the league-wide perception of the franchise. "The Raptors reputation is one of people questioning what direction were going in, what brand of basketball we play and what kind of personality are we going to have as an organization and we have to change that."   Michael Perez Rays Jersey .

But who at Newcastle is responsible for making a decision on his future? Owner Mike Ashley remains an important figure, however, when McClaren was appointed last June, he stepped down from the board along with former financial director John Irving.The former England manager was added to the board in a surprise move - the first time a Premier League manager had ever been named on a board. At that point, Newcastle formed a four-man board of McClaren, managing director Lee Charnley, former captain Bob Moncur and chief scout Graham Carr.Here, with the help of Sky Sports News HQ reporter Keith Downie, we answer some key questions around those Newcastle decision makers…Whats the role of those four board members? Lee Charnley is the main decision maker on the board. Charnley was the one who brought McClaren to Newcastle - and it would be his call to sack him. Owner Ashley could say its not working and task Charnley with firing McClaren and bringing someone else in, but Ashley doesnt do that himself. Ashleys PR man Keith Bishop is often in Newcastle and attended the game on Saturday. He would have been having meetings with members of the board.    Keith Downie says there is a wall of silence at Newcastle over the future of manager Steve McClaren Graham Carr is the chief scout. Brendan McKay Jersey. Hes not based at Newcastle but is responsible for identifying talent and bringing the clubs signings in. Most of the transfers into Newcastle are down to him and then it is up to the manager to get the most out of them and fit them into his team. However, in January, McClaren was able to identify two players he wanted to bring in himself: Andros Townsend and Jonjo Shelvey.Bob Moncur is a club ambassador. He played for Newcastle in the 1960s and 70s and captained them to the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1969. Moncur has been involved with the club for a long time and is a familiar face at St James Park. Hes also a favourite of the fans. Steve McClaren was added to the Newcastle board last summer McClaren is the final name on the board. He was given the role, according to Charnley, to gain a full understanding and appreciation for the club and its operations as a whole, not just the football side.Are the board discussing McClarens future?The latest news is that, on Monday, those board members are holding talks on McClarens future. Charnley was at St James Park earlier - but the discussion may well be taking place away from Newcastle or by conference call, rather than all three members needing to be at the stadium. What would happen to McClarens role on the board should he be sacked? McClaren being on the board could prove a sticking point as he would have to resign from his position, but that would probably be written into his contract in the case of him being sacked as head coach.  Also See: Newcastle board hold talks Whats wrong at Newcastle?

Sebastian Vettel was the surprise pacesetter in second practice for the Mexican GP ahead of Mercedes Lewis Hamilton. Luis Barrera Athletics Jersey .  Hamilton set laps 0.004 and 0.013 seconds shy of Vettels early benchmark but was unable to dislodge the Ferrari from the top of the timesheets.Ferrari havent won a race in over a year and had only previously headed a Friday timsheet this season at the Chinese GP in April. We had a very good day, Vettel told Sky F1. Lewiss lap didnt look particularly good so I think he has more in the pocket, so tomorrow we need to be realistic.But perhaps more significantly world championship leader Nico Rosberg, who will secure the title if he wins this weekend and Hamilton finishes 10th or lower, struggled and was almost half a second slower than Vettel and Hamilton on his qualifying simulation.Earlier in Practice One, Rosberg had been nearly eight tenths slower than his Mercedes team-mate and championship rival when they both ran on medium tyres and Hamilton was fastest from Vettel. This years event is only the second Mexican GP staged since the race returned to the calendar twelve months ago after a 20-year absence.The track is feeling better than it did last year and I feel a lot more comfortable in the car than I did the first time we came to this circuit, said Hamilton.Rosberg narrowly avoided hitting the wall when he ran wide during his first Practice Two supersoft lap but had already been slower than both Vettel and Hamilton in the first sector.We have a lot of homework to do tonight, the German admitted. Ferrari seemed very quick, so they will be a big threat.Mexican GP talking pointsThe session saw a large divergence on tyre strategy as the field grappled with the tricky Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit. Although featuring a series of long straights, the tracks corners are almost invariably slow, a configuration which appears to have at once both highlighted the weakness of the Red Bull package and nullified its aerodynamic strength.Having emerged as Mercedes closest rivals since the summer break, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen lacked the pace of both the Silver Arrows and Ferrari and ended the day just fifth and seventh respectively, split by the Force India of Nico Hulkenberg. The lap time of the Renault-bound Hulkenberg was all the more impressive for being set on soft tyres and nearly a second better than the best effort of his team-mate Sergio Perez.On an afternoon to forget for the two Mexicans in the field, Perez was just 15th while compatriot Esteban Gutierrez, fighting to keep his seat at Haas for 2017, was last. For McLaren, still aiming to end the year as the fourth-fastest team, Fernando Alonso just snuck into the top 10, two places ahead of Jenson Button.  The Formula 1 Gossip column All the latest rumour and speculation in the paddock Mexican GP Practice Two timesheet1.
