 CLEVELAND -- The squirrel was fearless. Kenny Smith Jersey . Zach McAllister wasnt nervous, either. Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley hit two-run homers to back McAllister, powering the Cleveland Indians over the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Monday night when a trespassing squirrel ran around Progressive Field and provided some extra entertainment. Kipnis connected in the sixth inning off Jeremy Guthrie (2-1), helping the Indians overcome a 3-2 deficit. Brantley provided Cleveland a 2-0 lead in the fourth. McAllister (3-0) gave up six hits and overcame three errors -- one on his errant throw in the fifth. Marc Rzepczynski and Cody Allen pitched a hitless inning each, and closer John Axford worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his seventh save. After the Royals scored three times, McAllister got out of the fifth with an inning-ending double play and then shook off third baseman Lonnie Chisenhalls error in the sixth and notched his third straight win. "He didnt let anything rattle him," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He worked to execute pitches. He was strong." McAllister also withstood a brief delay in the second when a squirrel ventured onto the field and eluded members of the grounds crew before finally leaving for the night. "He was right in front of me," McAllister said. Indians first baseman Nick Swisher motioned for the critter to run to him, but it darted past and into the outfield grass. "I was like, Cmon over here and sit in my glove," Swisher said. "I thought maybe hed sit on my shoulder like a parrot. I tell you what, that squirrel is eating, bro. That was a big squirrel." The squirrel was directed inside the Royals bullpen by some of the grounds staff, but the slippery rodent escaped and returned for another scamper to the delight of the crowd of 10,789. The pesky intruder hung around for another inning before it was shooed into the Indians centre-field bullpen. The squirrel perched on a ledge for several minutes before jumping the wall into the Heritage Park monument area. "That little joker was frolicking," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "They could have arrested him for trespassing because he didnt have a ticket." Alex Gordon and Omar Infante each had two of the Royals six hits. Indians designated hitter Jason Giambi went hitless in four at-bats in his season debut. He missed Clevelands first 18 games with a broken rib. Swisher led off the sixth with his second double, and Kipnis followed with his third homer, a drive into the seats in right-centre. Kipnis is 8 of 13 (.615) with two homers and six RBIs off Guthrie, who except for the home runs pitched effectively for 6 1-3 innings. Helped by McAllisters throwing error, the Royals scored three runs in the fifth to take a 3-2 lead. Mike Moustakas doubled to open the inning and scored when diving centre fielder Michael Bourn couldnt squeeze a sinking liner by Alcides Escobar. Jarrod Dyson followed with a bunt toward third that McAllister fielded cleanly before throwing wildly past first, allowing Escobar to score. One out later, Infantes RBI single put the Royals in front. Brantley connected in the fourth for his team-leading fourth homer, and second in two days. Kipnis led off with a double, and with one out, Brantley drove a 2-1 pitch from Guthrie over the wall in right. Brantley only hit 10 homers last season, and Francona believes the 26-year-old could develop into a more potent power hitter because "he gives himself a chance every at-bat." NOTES: Royals 1B coach Rusty Kuntz broke his left arm when he struck by a line drive hit by Salvador Perez during batting practice. Kuntz, who will undergo surgery on Wednesday, was replaced by Mike Jirschele. ... The Indians entered the week as one of four teams -- the Reds, Rockies and Padres are the others -- yet to play an extra-inning game. ... With Giambi available, Francona gave struggling DH/3B Carlos Santana the night off. Santana was just 2 for 38 in his past 10 games. ... Royals LHPs Tim Collins (strained hip) and Francisley Bueno (sprained finger) is to throw a simulated game Tuesday. Manager Ned Yost said both will go on a minor league rehab before being activated. Clint Capela Jersey . Pironkova, who was ranked outside the top 100 despite reaching the Wimbledon semifinals in 2010, beat three top 10 players in Sydney, 2012 French Open finalist Sara Errani, 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova and Kerber. Michael Frazier Jersey . "Youre not really spending time to sit back and analyze what your competitions doing and things like that," Anthopoulos said. "Youre so focused on what were trying to get done." Ultimately, while the landscape around them changed with trades both major and minor, the Blue Jays did nothing before Thursdays non-waiver deadline.ST. LOUIS -- Jack Clarks comments implying that Albert Pujols used steroids were too vague to do any real harm and a court should dismiss the lawsuit pitting the two former St. Louis Cardinals stars against each other, Clarks attorney said Tuesday. A motion filed Monday on behalf of Clark seeks dismissal of the defamation lawsuit filed by Pujols in October. The suit followed comments Clark made on his St. Louis radio show, "The King and the Ripper Show," in August. Among other things, Clark said he knew "for a fact" that Pujols was "a juicer." Pujols has vehemently denied using performance-enhancing drugs. Clark and his WGNU-AM show co-host Kevin Slaten were fired within days of the comments, and the stations owner broadcast a lengthy apology and posted similarly contrite statements on its website. The lawsuit names Clark but does not name the radio station or Slaten. Clarks attorney, Albert Watkins, said Clarks on-air comments were too vague to cause real harm to Pujols. "You call someone a juicer, in fact, there are multiple definitions of juicer," Watkins said. "It could mean illegal perrformance enhancing drugs, legal performance enhancing drugs. Stu Lantz Jersey. "Simply saying that my client asserted that Mr. Pujols was a juicer, under the law that governs defamation actions, is not enough," Watkins said. Pujols attorney, Martin Singer of Los Angeles, did not return a phone message seeking comment. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages that would be donated to charity and asks for a determination and declaration that Clarks statements are false. Pujols now plays for the Los Angeles Angels but maintains a home in St. Louis County. Clark also lives in the St. Louis area. The lawsuit said Pujols "character and reputation are impeccable and beyond reproach" and cites his charitable work with the Pujols Family Foundation. The suit calls calling Clark "a struggling radio talk show host" who was chasing ratings in the first week his new show was on the air when the comments were made. Pujols, a nine-time All-Star, played for the Cardinals from 2001-11, before signing a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Angels. Clark played for the Cardinals from 1985-87 and was a four-time All-Star. ' ' '
