CLEVELAND -- Sergio Santos wasnt as wild. He was just as worrisome. Santos retired Michael Brantley on a hard grounder with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to close out Torontos 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. Melky Cabrera had four hits and scored Torontos go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Edwin Encarnacions single before the Blue Jays withstood a shaky ninth by Santos, who bounced back from an awful outing in Minnesota on Thursday. "It got a little hairy there," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "But the bottom line is he got it done." On Thursday, Santos threw three wild pitches in the eighth, allowing three runs to score, and he and two Blue Jays relievers combined for eight walks in the inning as the Twins rallied to beat Toronto 9-5 and sweep a doubleheader. Clinging to a 3-2 lead against the Indians, Santos gave up a leadoff double to Lonnie Chisenhall and struck out Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher -- on six pitches. Santos then went to 3-2 counts before walking Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana to load the bases before getting Brantley on a one-hop smash that Encarnacion knocked down before touching the bag. "Trust me, Id love to get a 1-2-3 with fewer pitches," Santos said. "But its a long year and Im trying to learn as much as I can." Santos insisted he didnt carry Thursdays performance to the mound. "I didnt think about that once," he said. "The second we left Minnesota, all that stuff was left there. New day. New stadium. New team. New opportunity. Thats all I was looking for." The Blue Jays trailed 2-1 in the seventh before Munenori Kawasaki hit an RBI single off reliever Marc Rzepczynski (0-1), and Encarnacion delivered against Cody Allen. Steve Delabar (1-0), also involved in the eighth-inning debacle at Minnesota, got the win in relief of starter Drew Hutchison. Following the game, Kawasaki was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for shortstop Jose Reyes, who has been out since opening day with a strained hamstring. Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer for the Indians, who have dropped six of eight. Cabrera got his first three hits off Indians starter Justin Masterson, improving to 15 for 27 against the right-hander. Down 2-1, the Blue Jays scored twice in the seventh to take the lead and chase Masterson. Ryan Goins walked with one out and manager Terry Francona pulled Masterson, who allowed six hits, struck out nine and remained without a decision in four starts. Cabrera followed with a single off Rzepczynski, and Kawasaki tied it with his single. Allen came on to face Jose Bautista, and catcher Yan Gomes throwing error to first moved up the runners. Bautista was then walked intentionally and Encarnacion hammered his single to centre, putting the Blue Jays ahead 3-2. Gomes and Swisher had put on a play to try to pick off Kawasaki, but the throw skipped into right field. "Its a hard one to swallow," Gomes said. "Probably right there it cost us the game." Santana busted out of a long slump with his homer in the sixth off Hutchison to give the Indians a 2-1 lead. Santana was in a 1-for-30 slide before he connected off Hutchison, who took a shutout into the sixth with nine strikeouts. Santana had been hitless in his previous 11 at-bats. Hutchison cruised into the fifth before the Indians finally got to the right-hander. Jason Kipnis beat out an infield single and Santana drove a 3-2 pitch to right for his first homer since Sept. 28. Toronto pushed across a run in the fourth off Masterson, who had escaped a bases-loaded jam in the third. Colby Rasmus doubled off the wall in centre with one out and moved to third on Mastersons wild pitch. Brett Lawrie followed with a tapper toward third that Santana charged but was unable to grab with his bare hand as Rasmus scored. NOTES: Bautista has reached safely in all 17 games. ... Cabrera has 11 four-hit games. With a chance to get his fifth hit, he grounded out in the ninth. ... In addition to the Reyes move, the Blue Jays placed DH Adam Lind on the DL with a sore back. Toronto also purchased the contract of 1B Juan Francisco from Buffalo. They moved INF Macier Izturis (knee) to the 60-day disabled list. ... Hutchisons nine strikeouts matched a career high.

James Erskine told the Australian Associated Press that Thorpe was affected by a combination of antidepressants and the painkillers he was taking for a shoulder injury. Police spoke to Thorpe after residents near his parents home in Panania in Sydneys southwest reported a man allegedly breaking into a van. He was taken to Sydneys Bankstown Hospital for assessment and was later transferred to a rehab facility. "He is in rehab for depression," AAP quoted Erskine as saying. Erskine said Thorpe had thought he was sitting in his friends car. "The owner of the car basically called the police and the police came," he said. "They realized it was Ian Thorpe. They realized he was disoriented." Erskine said Thorpe, 31, had been taking antidepressants and medication for his shoulder but had not been drinking alcohol. "He hadnt had a drink," he said. "He had zero alcohol in him." Police said no official complaint has been made and no further police action is anticipated. Thorpe, who is currently living in Switzerland, has been staying with his parents over Christmas. Erskines admission that Thorpe is in rehab comes only days after Thorpes management company denied reports he checked into a rehab facility while battling depression and alcohol abuse. News Corporation, quoting friends of Thorpe, said he had been injured in a fall at his parents home and was taken to hospital. Reports said Thorpe checked into a rehab faciliity, but later checked out and returned to his parents home.dddddddddddd Thorpes management company, SEL, later issued a statement denying the reports. "Ian is not in rehab," a SEL representative said Friday. "Ian was in hospital for an operation on his shoulder and is pleased to let his friends and fans know that he is now out of hospital and on the mend." In his autobiography, published last year, Thorpe said "not even my family is aware that Ive spent a lot of my life battling what I can only describe as crippling depression." Thorpe, known to fans as Thorpedo, was a freestyle specialist and one of the greatest swimmers of his generation. He won three gold and two silver medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics -- the most medals won by any individual competitor at those games -- and two more golds at the 2004 Athens Olympics. He also won 11 world championships gold medals, including six at the 2001 championships at Fukuoka, Japan. When he won his first world championships gold at the age of 14 in Perth in 1998, he was the youngest-ever individual male world champion. At various times Thorpe held 13 individual world records and shared five others in relay events. The 400m freestyle was his signature event which he dominated at Olympics and World championships over more than six years. Thorpe retired from swimming in November, 2006, but attempted a comeback in 2012. His attempt to win a place on the Australian team for the London Olympics was unsuccessful and his thoughts of competing at the 2013 World Championships or 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games were thwarted by a shoulder injury. Friends said he struggled to adjust to life after swimming. ' ' '
