DETROIT — Zach McAllister gave up lots of runs in the middle innings last season.
This year? So far, so good.
McAllister allowed a run and four hits in six innings and Yan Gomes hit a two-run double in the Cleveland Indians’ 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night.
McAllister (2-0) walked two and struck out four.
“He used his fastball well early in the game,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “It was a great effort. He kept us off the field.”
The Tigers had runners on first and second with one out in the fourth, but McAllister got Nick Castellanos on a flyball that center fielder Michael Bourn ran down in deep right-center and then elevated a fastball to strike out Alex Avila swinging on a 3-2 pitch to end the inning.
“That was a big inning for me,” McAllister said. “The middle innings was where I couldn’t get out of trouble last season.”

Michigan losing Stauskas and Robinson to NBA PDF Print E-mail

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III are skipping their last two seasons at Michigan to enter the NBA draft and chase a dream they’ve had since they were kids.
Stauskas, who is from Mississauga, Ontario, set his sights on joining in the world’s best basketball league when he started playing the game in an organized way at the age of 7.
“From that point on, I pretty much committed myself to doing whatever it took to get to this point,” he said. “I don’t think many Canadian kids had that same dream. I think most of them were trying to go to the NHL, but I think the rise of Canadian basketball has been unbelievable. You see a lot of kids now making that jump from Canada and I’m glad to be a part of that group.”
Robinson, meanwhile, might have looked at the league a little earlier because his father — nicknamed “Big Dog” — was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1994 NBA draft.
Blue Jackets don’t mind all those who doubt them PDF Print E-mail

COLUMBUS — The Columbus Blue Jackets don’t mind all the doubters.
In fact, they almost welcome them.
“People were waiting for us to falter, kind of waiting to say, ‘I told you so,”’ coach Todd Richards said of his team’s season. “And this team never did.”
Saddled with years of losing, bad trades and awful draft picks, the Blue Jackets also get it that almost no one thinks they have a shot against the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, which start on Wednesday night.
It might look like a mismatch on paper, one of the youngest teams in the NHL making just its second postseason trip in the franchise’s 13 seasons against a list of superstars that includes Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Co.
But the Blue Jackets, while accepting all the slights and putdowns, really do believe they’re in a good place.
“If you look at the character in this room and the resiliency, it’s second to none,” defenseman James Wisniewski said. “No matter what happens, we haven’t stayed down for too long. We’ve always bounced back. We’ve had some tough losses and the next game we come up fine. So, look for us to make a statement this playoffs.”
The only time the Blue Jackets made the playoffs before they were led by rookie of the year goaltender Steve Mason in 2008-09 and were swept aside in four games by the Detroit Red Wings.
