Tribe falls, gets swept

Indians release RHP Myers after dismal season, failed to win game after signing $7m deal

ATLANTA — Brian McCann hit a three-run homer, Kris Medlen pitched seven scoreless innings and the Atlanta Braves completed a sweep of the Cleveland Indians with a 3-1 victory on Thursday night.

McCann went deep in the third after Justin Upton kept the inning going with a two-out single. Upton had to leave the game in the sixth after being struck on the left hand by a pitch, but X-rays were negative. He is day to day.

Medlen (11-12) capped a series of dominant pitching by the Braves, who surrendered just three runs in three games. David Carpenter gave up a pinch-hit homer to Lonnie Chisenhall in the eighth, but Craig Kimbrel worked a scoreless ninth for his 43rd save in 46 chances.

Ubaldo Jimenez (9-9) took the loss.

Cleveland didn’t get more than one runner aboard in any inning until the seventh, when Carlos Santana led off with a single and Yan Gomes reached on a hit with one out.
