CLEVELAND (AP) — Only hours before this season’s home opener, the Indians guaranteed Jason Kipnis will be around for more than a few more.
The All-Star second baseman agreed to a $52.5 million, six-year contract on Friday, binding him to the Indians through the 2019 season. The deal includes a club option for 2020.
Kipnis signed the contract one day after turning 27, giving him a birthday gift of wealth and security he’ll never forget.
“It’s an amazing feeling to get something done,” said Kipnis. “I wanted to stay here. I’m excited about being here.”
Kipnis is the latest core player to be signed to a long-term deal by the Indians, who reached agreements with outfielder Michael Brantley (4 years, $25 million) and catcher Yan Gomes (6 years, $23 million) in the past two months.
“It’s the ownership, the top, showing us that they believe in us, that we’ve got the guys who can win games now and we want them stick around,” Kipnis said. “I’m excited about be a part of that.”

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings experienced a lull after a fast start but got the two points they needed.
Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and an assist and Detroit held off the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Friday night for the Red Wings’ fourth consecutive win.
Detroit led 3-0 after the first period.
“To me, I thought we started really good, we were all over them,” said Red Wings’ coach Mike Babcock, who got his 413th win for Detroit, which ties him for the all-time franchise record with Jack Adams.
“I thought suddenly we had some skill and suddenly we were dangling around with the puck and now we had the cute-itis going and then we didn’t want to shoot it in the net,” he said. “We wanted to pass it one more time and the next thing you know it’s game on instead of just doing things simple and hard and right.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Lately, it seems as though the Brooklyn Nets just can’t get enough home cooking.
“You feel comfortable when you have dinner at your house, rather than when you go to someone else’s house and don’t know what they’re going to cook,” Nets forward Paul Pierce said.
Shaun Livingston scored 23 points, Mirza Teletovic made six 3-pointers and added 20 off the bench, and the Nets beat the Detroit Pistons 116-104 on Friday night for their 15th straight victory at Barclays Center.
The Nets went 15 for 31 from behind the arc.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ben Smith had the closest look and he likened it to mayhem.
Antti Raanta had the worst view on the ice and to him it was a thing of beauty.
Smith tapped in a rebound with 3.7 seconds left on a wild scrum to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

ATLANTA (AP) — A hot-shooting night has the Atlanta Hawks back in sole possession of a playoff spot.
Poor shooting cost the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game they desperately needed.
Mike Scott ended a scoring slump with 26 points and the Hawks beat Cleveland 117-98 on Friday night in a costly setback for the Cavaliers’ late-season playoff push.
Atlanta moved one game ahead of the New York Knicks, who lost to Washington 90-89, in the race for the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
