Indians’ Kluber loses 1-0 to Dodgers’ Haren PDF Print E-mail

LOS ANGELES — For the third straight game, the Cleveland Indians were involved in a one-hit shutout. And for the second day in a row, they were on the short end.
Michael Bourn was awarded a single in the third inning after umpire Adrian Johnson’s original call was reversed on a replay challenge by manager Terry Francona. That was all the Indians could get against Dan Haren in a 1-0 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.
Cleveland was unsuccessful against Haren (8-4) after Seattle’s Felix Hernandez stymied them through eight innings on Sunday.
“I would have liked to be on the winning side of all three,” said Cleveland third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall, whose single in the fifth inning against Hernandez was the Indians’ only hit following Josh Tomlin’s complete-game 5-0 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.
“You’ve got to give the pitchers credit. That doesn’t happen a lot,” Chisenhall added. “We usually work counts, get deep into counts, get hits and put pressure on guys. But we haven’t done that two days in a row.”
Dodgers shortstop Miguel Rojas made a diving stop of Bourn’s smash behind second base and got the out call from Johnson before Francona strolled out of the dugout. Bourn then stole second, giving the Indians two men in scoring position. But Asdrubal Cabrera looked at a third strike.

Kyrie Irving isn’t going anywhere.
Dogged by rumors that he has wanted out of Cleveland, Irving and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert tweeted early Tuesday morning that they have agreed to terms on a new five-year contract extension. Neither side announced the terms of the deal, but several outlets reported that it was a maximum deal worth about $90 million that will keep him in Cleveland for the next six years.
“Looking forward to the next 6 years of (at)KyrieIrving in CLE,” Gilbert tweeted not long after the free agent market opened at midnight on Tuesday. “Just shook hands (and) intend to sign on the 10th.Can’t be more excited about (at)cavs.”
The deal cannot officially be signed until July 10, per NBA rules. But it was a huge step forward for the Cavaliers and for Irving, and the first big splash of the new NBA fiscal year.

NEW YORK (AP) — With 10.4 million viewers on Univision, Sunday's World Cup match between Mexico and the Netherlands is the most-watched Spanish-language broadcast in U.S. television history.

The Nielsen company said Monday that beat the previous record of 9.4 million for a match between Mexico and Argentina in the 2010 World Cup. The Mexico-Netherlands game was also seen by 6.6 million people on ESPN — meaning a total of 17 million watched. ESPN said it was the most-watched  game for an English-language station in the United States that did not involve the U.S. team.

 
France in World Cup QF as nerve holds vs. Nigeria PDF Print E-mail

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — After being touted as one of the World Cup's entertainers, it was a gritty performance which got France through to the quarterfinals in a 2-0 victory over Nigeria on Monday.

France's forward line had made headlines with eight goals in its opening two group games, but there was little flair on display in a hard-fought contest against the African champions.

France needed a late header from midfielder Paul Pogba and an injury-time own goal from defender Joseph Yobo to overcome a robust Nigeria.
