CLEVELAND -- The Houston Astros journey through the land of American League playoff contenders has been a success so far. Jon Singletons homer capped a four-run ninth inning and the Astros took advantage of Clevelands sloppy defence to defeat the Indians 5-1 on Friday night. Houston, beginning the final leg of a 10-game road trip, took two of three at Yankee Stadium before coming to Cleveland, and has won four of five overall. The Astros have been the team taking advantage of mistakes against teams trying to reach the post-season. "Its huge, thats what winning ballclubs do," Singleton said. "When teams are making small mistakes like that, other teams capitalize and come out with the win." The Astros had lost six straight against Cleveland, getting outscored 41-15. Singleton hit a three-run drive off Cody Allen (4-3) after a pair of throwing errors by the worst defensive team in the majors. Catcher Roberto Perezs wild throw let the go-ahead run score. A throwing error by first baseman Carlos Santana set up Houstons big inning. "I felt like our guys did a good job of being aggressive and took advantage of some mistakes in which the other team made," Astros manager Bo Porter said. Tony Sipp (4-2) pitched the eighth. The Indians helped him by getting two runners thrown out on the bases. Astros starter Brad Peacock gave up one run and was pulled after five innings because of discomfort in his right forearm. Marwin Gonzalez homered for Houston and Zach Walters connected for Cleveland in the fifth. Walters homered for the third straight day. After Allen issued a one-out walk to Chris Carter, Santana threw wildly to second after fielding Dexter Fowlers groundball. The error moved Carter to third. Then when Fowler tried to steal second, Perezs high throw glanced off shortstop Jose Ramirezs glove and rolled into the outfield, allowing Carter to score. Singleton then put the game away. "Every time I go up there I try and hit a ball hard," he said. "Sometimes you dont do that and you still got to go up there and do your job. Its definitely nice to know all the hard work is not wasted." The Indians lead the majors with 99 errors after committing 98 when they made the playoffs last season. Their poor play, however, wasnt limited to defence Friday. Cleveland had runners on first and second with no outs in the eighth before shoddy baserunning ended the threat. Mike Aviles, who led off with a single, was caught off second on Perezs bunt attempt. Tyler Holt, who advanced to second while Aviles was tagged in a rundown, was later thrown out trying to steal third. Cleveland manager Terry Francona was understandably displeased with the mistakes. "Obviously, we need to do better," he said. "We cant play like that and expect to win." Carlos Carrasco allowed one run in six innings for Cleveland. BO KNOWS FOOTBALL Porter played football at the University of Iowa and follows the sport closely. He has taken special interest in the Cleveland Browns since they drafted Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in May. "Id like to be on the sideline giving Johnny Football advice before he goes in," Porter joked. POWER SURGE Carter has hit 17 homers since July 1, which is five more than any other player in the majors. He also leads the league during that span with 42 RBIs and a .665 slugging percentage. TRAINERS ROOM Astros: Porter said he didnt want to take any chances with Peacock when his forearm tightened up. ... RHP Chad Qualls, who had been out with a sore back, pitched the ninth inning, his first appearance since Tuesday. Indians: C Yan Gomes (concussion) did some light pregame activity Friday. He was hit in the mask when a pitch deflected off Minnesotas Kurt Suzuki on Thursday. Theres no timetable for when Gomes will return. UP NEXT Astros: RHP Collin McHugh (6-9) is seeking his first career three-game winning streak Saturday. Hell be facing the Indians for the first time. Indians: RHP Danny Salazar (4-6) goes against the Astros for the first time in his career. Hes 4-1 when he throws at least five innings this season. Marquis Haynes Jersey .com) - Virginia is for loving Latrell Scott. Ian Thomas Panthers Jersey . His Chicago Blackhawks teammates werent shocked when he found it. Kanes career has been defined by his brilliance in the Blackhawks biggest moments, and his tiebreaking goal with 3:45 to play in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals will rank among the best. http://www.authenticpanthersfootball.co ... cy-jersey/. Ramon, 30, played in a career-high 97 games with the Goldeyes in 2013. He also matched a career-high eight home runs and posted 52 RBI. D.J. Moore Jersey . Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points. Castillo opened the scoring in the 71st minute off a Mauro Diaz set piece, and Watson outran defender Tony Lochhead on a long ball and then juked goalkeeper Ian Kennedy for the eventual game-winner in the 78th minute. Daeshon Hall Jersey . Dancevic won his singles match on Friday, defeating Go Soeda 6-4, 7-6 (2), 6-1, to even the best-of-five series at a game apiece. World No. 18 Kei Nishikori defeated Peter Polansky in the opening match, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.Just under a month ago, 32 teams started out on a path to join the elite club of World Cup Champions. Two teams remain in pursuit of that goal, but both nations – Germany and Argentina – have multiple titles to their credit. Germany reached the Final with the most unpredictable of performances, piling goal after goal on a stunned Brazilian team en route to a 7-1 thrashing. The Argentinian team, meanwhile, snuck by a powerful Dutch side by the slimmest of margins: waiting out 120 minutes of cautious, scoreless play and settling things in penalty kicks. So, with the Final looming on the horizon, which nation do you like to capture its first title in over two decades? Germany started their campaign in Brazil with authority, drubbing Portugal 4-0 in their group stage opening and providing the margin of victory that would inevitably send Cristiano Ronaldo and his compatriots home before the knockout stage. A 2-2 draw to Ghana would provide the only blemish on Germanys record thus far but the team would clinch the top of Group G by edging out former coach and World Cup hero Jurgen Klinsmann and his American side 1-0 in their opening round finale. The Algerians would give Germany a scare in the round of 16, forcing extra time before Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil put away what would stand as a 2-1 victory. They would then ride an early header from defender Mats Hummels past a high-scoring French side in the quarters to set up their drubbing of the host Brazilians in the semis. Along the way the Germans have seen one man write his name in the annals of World Cup history and another serve notice that he may be next in line. Miroslav Kloses mark in the semifinal thrashing put him in sole possession of the all-time World Cup goal scoring record, one ahead of Brazilian great Ronaldo with 16. Not to be outdone, however, is 24-year-old Bayern Munich striker Thomas Müller. After earning a share of the Golden Boot in South Africa with five goals, Müller has piled on another five and enters the Fiinal one shy of an unprecedented second straight.dddddddddddd Argentinas performance has been a study in doing just enough to win. Though they have won all six of their contests in Brazil, they have done so by just a single goal in each match. The team emerged from a group devoid of titanic opposition, edging out Bosnia and Herzegovina in part thanks to a third-minute own-goal and Iran thanks to an unforgettable Lionel Messi free kick in second half stoppage-time. With the group hanging in the balance, the Argentines went back and forth with Nigeria in the opening round finale, eventually outlasting their African opposition in a 3-2 victory. In the knockout round, however, the Argentinians have used lone goals to get past highly-ranked European opposition. Switzerland – the top seed in Group E entering the tournament – held them scoreless through nearly two hours before Angel di Maria broke through in the 188th minute. Against Belgium it was the opposite, with Gonzalo Higuain finding the back of the net eight minutes in to provide the matchs lone goal. The question begs whether the team can find the firepower to match the German machine. Messi enters the Final tied for third in the competition with four goals and all eyes will be on the Little Magician to see if he can step up and add to his “Best Player in the World” argument when it matters most for his country. A double-sided historical note to help you make up your mind: Germany has lost just once to Argentina at the World Cup and has ended Argentinas tournament at each of the last two. However, Germanys one loss came in the 1986 Final, the last time the nation was crowned World Champions. So, who do you like? Will the balanced German attack find its way through the Argentine defence to earn a first World title as a unified nation? Or, will Messi heed Diego Maradonas claims as the future of Argentinian football and continue the trend of European World Cup futility in the Americas? As always, its Your! Call.
