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. Shaun Alexander Jersey . 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. Rees Odhiambo Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Earl Thomas III Jersey . CBS Sports Jon Heyman is reporting that Santana will sign a one-year deal, likely in the next two days with one of a trio of suitors, with the Toronto Blue Jays believed to be heavily involved. TAMPA, Fla. -- Martin St. Louis tied a Tampa Bay scoring record, it just wasnt enough to lift the Lightning to a win. Just two minutes into the second period, St. Louis had matched the club mark with four goals on the game. The Lightning had the lead, but it wouldnt last. Joe Pavelski scored three straight goals of his own in the second period to help the San Jose Sharks rally for a 5-4 victory on Saturday. Pavelski beat goalie Ben Bishop twice in a span of 21 seconds midway through the period, and then added the winner a minute before the intermission. St. Louis struck three times against goalie Antti Niemi in a span of 7:34 in the first period for his eighth NHL hat trick. His fourth goal early in the second equaled the team mark set by Chris Kontos against Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Ed Belfour and the Chicago Blackhawks in Tampa Bays inaugural game on Oct. 7, 1992. St. Louis scored twice on the power play against a penalty-killing unit that hadnt allowed a goal in six consecutive games. His four goals were one more than San Jose had allowed in its previous four games combined. "I did appreciate them, until we were down and the game was over," St. Louis said. "Its tough to really be happy about it (when) at the end of the day you lose the game." Tampa Bay sustained its fifth straight one-goal loss at home. "Spotting him with four goals, its lucky we won the game," Sharks captain Joe Thornton said. "Hes been a great player for a lot of years. He kknows what to do when he gets the puck. Jon Ryan Jersey. ." Thornton also reached a milestone, joining Hall of Famer Bobby Hull in 48th place on the NHL career list with 1,170 points with his assist on Pavelskis winner. "Right place right time," Thornton said. "He just has a knack for finding the back of the net. For us to come back down 4-2, it was big for us." Matt Nieto and Patrick Marleau put San Jose ahead 2-1 with goals three minutes apart midway through the first period. St. Louis scored his first goal in between, then struck twice more before the intermission. His record-tying score 2:09 into the second period gave him eight goals and 11 points in the NHLs longest current point streak at seven games. "I thought we put ourselves in a good spot, up 4-2 against a pretty good San Jose team," St. Louis said. "We didnt keep pushing, we took penalties, and next thing you know, we are down a goal, so its deflating. We just didnt get it done." NOTES: San Jose has won eight of 10 in the series. . Bishop earned his second assist of the season from the Tampa Bay net. ... Lightning D Victor Hedman was helped off the ice after sustaining a lower-body injury early in the third period. . Tampa Bay fell to 7-1-1 at home against Western Conference foes. . St. Louis entered the game one point behind Hall of Famer Larry Robinson on the NHL career list. He also vaulted past Kirk Muller into 86th place with 961. . The Sharks are 22-2-5 when they score first. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
