     CLEVELAND (AP) - Carlos Carrasco struck out 14, Jason Kipnis and Roberto Perez hit two-run homers and the Cleveland Indians notched their 100th win, 5-2 over the understandably sluggish Twins. Minnesota clinched a wild-card berth hours hours earlier.
 
     Carrasco (18-6) dominated a Minnesota lineup loaded with reserves and September call-ups. He allowed six hits - all singles - in 8 1-3 innings and improved to 3-0 with a 0.92 ERA against the Twins. The right-hander also moved into a tie for the league lead in wins with teammate Corey Kluber and Kansas City's Jason Vargas.
 
     Kipnis, who has moved from second base to center field,  connected for a two-run homer - his first since Aug. 18 - in the sixth inning off Trevor Hildenberger (3-3) as the Indians jumped to 31-4 since Aug. 24.
 
     This is just the third time Cleveland has won 100 games in a season. The last team to do it was Cleveland's powerful 1995 squad, which lost to Atlanta in the World Series.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has been ruled out of the game again this week because of lingering soreness in his left knee, meaning Case Keenum will make his third straight start.
 
     Coach Mike Zimmer said today that Bradford's status remains day to day. Surgery isn't needed, Zimmer said, only rest.
 
     Bradford hasn't practiced in a week. He was declared out shortly before kickoff on Sept. 17 at Pittsburgh, then two days before the most recent game against Tampa Bay when he traveled to seek a second medical opinion on the knee.
 
     The Vikings (2-1) host the Detroit (2-1) on Sunday.

Watson surprised three women who work in the team cafeteria at the stadium on Wednesday. Watson donated about $27,000 of his base salary of $465,000. The women became emotional when he handed them an envelope with a red ribbon and one asked for a hug. He quickly obliged with a big grin.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James turned his left ankle during practice Wednesday night, his first workout with newly signed teammate Dwyane Wade. A Cavaliers spokesman said James had X-rays, which were negative. The three-time NBA champion didn't practice today so he could undergo treatment. He's expected to be day to day. The severity of James' injury is not known.
 
     James has been reunited with Wade, his former teammate in Miami. They won two NBA championships together with the Heat and are excited about chasing a third with the Cavs. Wade turned down offers from other teams and signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract - the veteran's minimum - for a chance to play with his close friend.
 
     Wade also didn't practice today so he could attend to a personal matter. The 12-time All-Star will be introduced by the Cavs on Friday following practice.
