Target Field's reputation as a tough place for power hitters hasn't vanished. The Twins, A's and Royals combined to hit only three homers in five games there last week, with Jason Kubel hitting one ball to the warning track in right that teammate Danny Valencia thought was "going to be in the upper deck. " … Keys to the Indians' fast start — shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who has four homers and 14 RBIs and won a game with a squeeze bunt; 3-4-5 starters Justin Masterson, Josh Tomlin and Mitch Talbot; the bullpen trio of closer Chris Perez and lefties Rafael Perez and Tony Sipp, who allowed four hits in their first 17 innings; and greatly improved fielding, which manager Manny Acta is most happy about.

"Actually, I've been fortunate. Things have just happened." Well, not really. It's taken 13 years of hard work and whistle-stop touring.

Don't be surprised if Ryan Braun steals some bases in the playoffs. He has been running well after recovering from an inflamed tendon behind his left knee, becoming the second 30/30 player in Brewers history. . . . The Yankees still are worried about Rodriguez's left thumb. He has been using a split grip on the bat lately, with a layered O-ring of tape between his hands to protect his sprained thumb.

CLEVELAND -- Five runs ahead and 10 outs away from a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians, the Angels collapsed in the sixth and seventh innings for a 6-5 loss at Progressive Field on Sunday. Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana led off the seventh inning with a home run to right field off reliever J.C. Gutierrez to tie the score, 5-5, the first run given up in the series by an Angels bullpen, which had retired 18 of 20 Indians batters to that point. Lonnie Chisenhall walked with one out, Drew Stubbs singled, Michael Bourn stroked a run-scoring single to left field off left-hander Nick Maronde for a 6-5 lead, and the Indians held on to snap a six-game losing streak.

Indeed, the poet, playwright, critic and internationally renowned wit was the prototype of celebrity.

More than simply music, Fiesta Broadway is one of the few opportunities to walk the streets of Los Angeles and feel as if you are actually strolling through any major Latin American city. As such, the event should awaken feelings of nostalgia in anybody born south of the border. The 10th edition held downtown Sunday was business as usual.
