la said in a statement MINNEAPOLIS -- As he dived through the clubhouse on a makeshift slip-and-slide drenched with beer and champagne, a euphoric Nick Swisher could only think about how far his Cleveland Indians had come, and how quickly they got there. They staggered into September on a five-game skid that had them all but finished in the AL playoff picture and entered the final two weeks of the season essentially needing to win every game to scratch their way into the post-season. And they did just that. Cleveland earned its first post-season berth since 2007, beating the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Sunday to clinch an AL wild card as Ubaldo Jimenez tied a career high with 13 strikeouts. Swisher homered in the first inning for the Indians, who became the first major league team to win its final 10 regular-season games since the 1971 Baltimore Orioles finished with 11 straight victories, according to STATS. "The way weve been playing as of late, talk about starting pitching, talk about clutch hitting from our guys," a goggled Swisher hollered amid the celebration. "Im telling you, were bringing that wild card game back to the 216 and that place is going to be packed out and rockin, baby!" Cleveland will host Tampa Bay or Texas, who will play a tiebreaker on Monday, in the one-game AL wild-card playoff on Wednesday night. Jimenez (13-9) gave up one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Indians, the first team to sweep seven four-game series in one regular season since the 1943 St. Louis Cardinals. After the final out, Cleveland players mobbed each other on the diamond in a jubilant celebration. "Im so crazy about this group of guys," first-year manager Terry Francona said. "From ownership to baseball ops to the clubhouse guys, to be able to stand here and say the Indians are going to the playoffs, Im so proud of everybody." Scott Diamond (6-13) gave up four runs -- two earned -- and seven hits for the Twins (66-96). Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes also drove in runs for the Indians, who entered with a one-game lead over Tampa Bay and Texas. If the Indians had lost Sunday and the Rays and Rangers won, two days of tiebreaker games would have been needed to determine the wild cards. Jimenez and the Indians wanted no part of that. After giving up a leadoff single to Alex Presley in the first, the right-hander retired 17 straight. He was on a run of five strikeouts in a row when he walked Presley with two outs in the sixth and gave up a single to Brian Dozier. But Jimenez threw a called third strike past Trevor Plouffe to end the threat. Jimenez went 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA and 51 strikeouts in six September starts. "Its really good," Jimenez said. "Were going to start that game knowing we have played really good lately. Were going to be bringing everything we have, especially (because) its only a one-game playoff. Anything can happen. Definitely we have a lot of confidence right now. Hopefully we get that game." Swishers two-run homer landed just over the flower bed in left field in the first inning and the Indians tacked on two more in the sixth thanks in part to throwing errors by shortstop Pedro Florimon and Diamond. Cleveland lost at least 93 games in three of the previous four seasons. But the Indians increased their wins total by 24 games this year behind a strong pitching staff and Francona, a rejuvenated manager who has found a home in Cleveland after a messy end to his tenure in Boston in 2011. Their 21-6 record in September is the best in the majors, and they feasted on a soft schedule. The Indians won 15 of their last 17 games, beating up on the White Sox, Royals, Astros and Twins, but theyre not apologizing. "We needed every one of them," general manager Chris Antonetti said. "We never set any limits on what we can do as a team. Its been really fulfilling to see how weve come together and its a testament to this group of guys and the way theyve continually picked each other up. Its a really resilient group that had some tough stretches but always rebounded. Its been fun to see." And its not over yet. "I just hope we get to keep playing," Francona said. "We dont want to go home." NOTES: The Twins offence reached double digits in strikeouts for a game for the 66th time this season. The previous franchise high for a season was 26. ... Indians 2B Jason Kipnis stole his 30th base of the season in the seventh inning, his second straight season to reach that plateau. Wholesale Nike Air Max Nz . Toronto dropped a 7-2 decision to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon, with only a pair of late runs preventing a second straight shutout loss. Josh Willingham belted a two-run homer in the first inning and Kendrys Morales hit a bases-clearing double in the seventh as the Twins took the rubber game of the three-game series.

New York then missed its next six shots and scored only two points the rest of the night. The Los Angeles Clippers defence and the Knicks general ineptitude both played a role in the unsurprising finish to a meeting of two teams headed in opposite directions. Discount Nike Air Max Nz .com) - The Dallas Mavericks had a five-game winning streak snapped last time out, but theyll try to get back into the winners circle Sunday evening when the Milwaukee Bucks pay a visit to American Airlines Center. Cheap Nike Air Max Nz . -- Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has been fined $26,250 for contact with an official, per NFL guidelines.DUBLIN, Ohio -- Bubba Watson has been coming to Muirfield Village ever since his rookie year on the PGA Tour. Nine years later, he might have finally figured it out. He had only five rounds in the 60s in his previous eight trips. Even with a bogey on his final hole Saturday, he had a 3-under 69 for his third straight round in the 60s this week. Watson is 11 under on the par 5s, the key to scoring. Best of all, he walked off the course with a one-shot lead over Scott Langley in the Memorial. Not bad for a guy who has never finished better than a tie for 23rd. "Its all about maturity," Watson said. "Thinking around the golf course a lot better -- its my ninth year on tour, so better thinking on the golf course is creating better shots. Hitting a lot more greens. Hitting a lot more fairways. Putting a little better this year. When you add all that up, it turns into better scores. Watson was at 12-under 204 and in position for his third win of the year. "I have a shot," Watson said. "Id like the same score tomorrow and let the boys beat me if they can beat me." Plenty of them should have a chance. With a bogey on the final hole, Watsons lead shrunk to one shot over Langley, who had a 67 to make it an all-southpaw final pairing Sunday. Langley has not been in the final group since his rookie debut two years ago in Honolulu. The most famous Lefty, Phil Mickelson, had a 72 and was 10 shots out of the lead while coping with reports he is involved in a federal investigation of insider trading. Mickelson confirmed that FBI agents approached him after the first round this week. Otherwise, he went about his business on the golf course. "Its not going to change the way I carry myself," Mickelson said. "Honestly, Ive done nothing wrong. Im not going to walk around any other way." Hideki Matsuyama of Japan made birdie on his last hole for a 69 and was two shots behind. Adam Scott, the No. 1 player in the world and coming off a win at the Colonial last week, made eagle on the 15th that sparked another surge up the leaderboard. With a bogey on the last hole, he had a 68 and still was only three shots behind. "Its going to be tough," Scott said about his three-shot deficit to the MMasters champion.dddddddddddd "Hes playing great this year, and I just have to post a number. Im in a good position where I can possibly post a number, and that makes life a little harder for the leader." The 36-hole leader had a tough enough time. Paul Casey, who started Saturday with a three-shot lead. That was gone in three holes when Watson made a pair of birdie, and Casey missed more than his share of putts that keep rounds together. He ended with a double bogey for a 76. He still was in range, however, part of a large group at 8-under 208 that included Jordan Spieth (67), Charl Schwartzel (67) and Byron Nelson winner Brendon Todd (69). Watson already has won at Riviera and Augusta at Riviera and Augusta National this year. He has tried to make it a point of keeping golf fun -- Bubba Golf, he likes to call it -- instead of getting wrapped up in expectations. His performance on the par 5s took a slight hit on the 11th hole when his drive found the water, he chose to lay up because of the front hole location and missed his 12-foot par putt. He followed by missing birdie chances of 7 feet on the 13th hole and 3 1/2 feet on the 14th hole, a chance to build some separation. But he rolled in a 12-foot birdie on the 15th and was back in control until the 18th. Watson pulled his approach well right of the green, and his chip ran through the green and into the fringe against the collar. Using a fairway metal to chip, it appeared that the club moved his ball before the stroke, though Watson says he didnt touch it and television replays made it clear that the ball didnt leave its position. Langley doesnt hit the ball as long as Watson. His game is about efficiency and control, and he has shown that by taking a streak of 40 straight holes without a bogey into the final round. Much like Watson, he saw the simple pleasures of a round at Muirfield Village. "Any time you shoot in the 60s here, pretty happy about it," Langley said. "Tough place." Langley grew up in the Midwest and went to school at Illinois. He has played plenty in the Columbus area in college and says he "never cracked an egg" whether he was at the Scarlett Course at Ohio State or Scioto. The good news for Langley? Muirfield Village is in Dublin.
