Rays blank Indians in AL Wild Card game

TB moves on to face Red Sox in ALDS.

(Continued)

Cobb pumped both fists in celebration, knowing he had escaped danger.

It was nothing new for Cabrera, an All-Star the past two seasons who struggled in 2013 and went 2 for 15 with the bases loaded.

The Indians threatened again in the fifth, putting two on with none out. But Cobb struck out Bourn, got Swisher to ground to first and retired All-Star Kipnis on a soft-as-cotton comebacker to keep it 3-0.

Francona was confident Salazar, who sailed through Cleveland’s farm system with a rocket right arm, could prolong the season.

“We gave him the ball for a reason,” Francona said. “This stage isn’t too big for him.”

And for the most part, Salazar held his own. But a few mistakes cost him and will undoubtedly give him some restless nights until spring training.

Young’s ninth homer in the past three Octobers gave the Rays a 1-0 lead in the third, and their first hit off Salazar.

Drafted first overall by Tampa Bay in 2003, Young returned to the Rays in August with plenty of postseason experience — and success. He was the ALCS MVP with Detroit last season as the Tigers swept the New York Yankees in four games.

Now he’s on the road with the Rays, who want to travel as deep as they can this month.
