CLEVELAND -- Michael Brantley did just about everything for the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night. The first-time All-Star homered and had three RBIs and Nick Swisher hit a go-ahead two-run shot in the sixth, leading Cleveland to a 5-3 victory over Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees. The Indians stopped Tanakas bid to become the major leagues first 13-game winner. The rookie All-Star right-hander (12-4) allowed season worsts of five runs and 10 hits in 6 2-3 innings. But the night belonged to Brantley, who hit a leadoff homer in the seventh and had RBI doubles in the first and fifth, raising his average to .328. He also ran down Derek Jeters fly ball to deep centre on the warning track in the first when New York scored twice. "Hes a pretty good player, and hes getting better," Indians manager Terry Francona said with a smile. Brantley has 14 homers and 60 RBIs, both team highs. He also is tied for the AL lead with 10 outfield assists. "Hes a young player thats really developed into one of the better outfielders in the game all-around," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "And he showed why tonight. Its why hes an All-Star." Brantley chose to focus on the win more than his personal performance. "We did a great job as a team having quality at-bats all night," he said. "I was trying to get mistake pitches. I was lucky enough to get a couple of balls out over the plate and get good swings on them." Tanaka, who lost for the third time in four starts, took a 3-2 lead into the sixth before Swisher, a former Yankee, put Cleveland on top. "It was the first time weve ever seen him," Swisher said. "The first couple of at-bats youre kind of feeling him out. In that situation from the scouting reports and video weve seen, he loves that split-slider. When I got in that two-strike count, hed been burying that split all day long. For me, I was just lucky enough for him to hang that one." Lonnie Chisenhall started the sixth with a single. Swisher then homered on a 1-2 pitch. Trevor Bauer (3-4) allowed three runs in seven innings and retired 13 of the last 14 hitters he faced. New Yorks only baserunner in that stretch came on Swishers fifth-inning error. Bauer struck out six and walked two in winning for the first time since June 16. Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 10th save. The Yankees were held to four hits, none after Brian McCanns one-out single in the third. The Indians committed three errors, giving them a major league-high 75 for the season. Swisher heard boos from the crowd earlier in the game after going 0 for 2 and having a routine groundball go through his legs. Tanaka allowed a run in a 25-pitch first inning and gave up two hits in the second. He retired seven straight before allowing a run in the fifth when Brantley had a two-out double after Chris Dickerson led off with a single. Tanaka struck out five and walked one. "He did get on a roll in innings three, four and five and then the mistakes kind of caught up to him," Girardi said. "It happens, we know hes not going to be perfect, we understand that. We know how good hes been but we know hes not going to be perfect." New York scored twice in the first on Mark Teixerias RBI single and a throwing error by catcher Yan Gomes. Brett Gardner added a run-scoring groundout in the second. Jason Kipnis started the first with a single, stole second and scored when Brantley doubled to right. Gardner walked to start the game and moved to second on Jacoby Ellsburys single. Dickerson attempted a diving catch of Teixerias bloop hit, but the ball deflected off his glove and rolled toward centre, allowing Gardner to score. New York pulled a double steal when McCann struck out swinging. Gomes throw to second went into centre field and Ellsbury scored. Teixerias stolen base was his first of the season.

No more games. Hockey had officially become a business. It was 25 games into his NHL career and John Stevens had been fired as the Flyers head coach. Expectations weren’t being met for a Stanley Cup contender that featured Chris Pronger, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter at the top of a roster that also included a young Claude Giroux and a still-productive Daniel Briere. The Flyers had lost six of seven at that point in early December and were tumbling down the Eastern Conference standings under Stevens’ direction, just a few points up on a Ron Wilson-led Toronto club that was scuffling itself. Now 25-years-old and sprouting the first signs of a beard, van Riemsdyk vividly remembers the tense closed-door meetings of that time, the threats of trades and demotions from management, the eye-opening reality of life as a pro. It brings a grin to his face now, but didn’t then. That was the moment when the game changed. Business in the league could be cold and ruthless. “It’s a wake-up call when someone loses their job,” said van Riemsdyk more than five years after the fact and just days after his third head coach in the league was dismissed. “You’re like ‘wow’.” The Flyers didn’t initially take to the firing of Stevens and hiring of Peter Laviolette, but they eventually righted the ship, snuck into the playoffs on the final day of the regular season and won three playoff rounds before Chicago dropped them in the Cup Final. It was the kind of turnaround most clubs dream of when they dismiss a coach mid-season, the L.A. Kings churning down a similar path under Darryl Sutter en route to a Cup win in 2012. “Once you get into the playoffs anything can happen,” said van Riemsdyk, tied for 18th in league scoring on a Toronto team that’s lost eight of 10. “That’s our goal here, to get into the playoffs and once you get to the dance pretty much anyone can beat anyone.” Unlike the Flyers in those days, the Maple Leafs aren’t chasing Cups at this point in their history, but they did fire Randy Carlyle with the hope of shaking up a season veering further and further off the rails. Dave Nonis said his team was “trending the wrong way” after a slimy 1-4-0 road trip, adding that such a move “was made to try to put ourselves in a better position, nothing other than that.” And so now it falls to interim head coach Peter Horachek to try to steer a turnaround in the second hallf.dddddddddddd He’s tasked with chipping away at all the instabilities that lingered in Toronto during Carlyle’s 188 games behind the bench. Horachek led his second practice on Thursday morning, one day after a 6-2 loss to Washington in his Toronto coaching debut. The whistle blew repeatedly. Drills were stopped. Instruction was constant. Players were informed of where they needed to be on the ice and why. They asked questions. He asked questions back. There was less barking, more talk. The pace was high. “That’s his job,” Horachek said in directing Sam Carrick, explaining what the responsibilities of his teammates were during one particular defensive zone drill. “He’s a good communicator and a good teacher out there for us,” said van Riemsdyk, who made note of that quality on the first day of training camp. “Obviously we have some things in our game that we need to find some consistency with and he’s going to try and help us do that.” Horachek has spoken about culture, accountability and resolve, but more than that he’s charged with improving those elements on the ice that have sagged badly in recent years and especially in recent weeks. The Leafs struggled under Carlyle to both keep the puck and keep it out of the net. “When you come into a situation there’s something that needs to change - whether it’s attitude adjustment or whatever it is - something always has to be adjusted,” Horachek said, filling the interim tag for 66 games in Florida last season. In this case, defending is top of the list. The Leafs are sixth from the bottom defensively this season – 3.10 goals against per game – yielding more even-strength goals at the midway point than every team but Buffalo and Edmonton. They attempted corrections at practice, working to improve both their ability to defend in-zone and off the rush. Horachek has talked repeatedly about the five-man approach. “You can’t play defence with four guys,” he said. “Everybody’s got to do their job and everybody’s got to be part of what their responsibilities are.” And he made sure that was known, steering traffic at a practice that went on for less than an hour. Players noticed a higher tempo with shorter drills, but more of them. Playoff-less in eight of the past nine seasons, Toronto sits just outside of a spot at the official midway point of the season. Its clear where they want to go. Whats unclear is the effect Horachek can imprint on a puzzling club in the final 41 games. The page though has begun to turn.
