ST. Henri Jokiharju Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Canadian John Axford is out as the Cleveland Indians closer. Indians manager Terry Francona announced the move before Saturday nights game against Tampa Bay. He met with the Simcoe, Ont. native prior to batting practice. Axford is 1-3 with nine saves and a 4.91 ERA in 17 games in his first season with the Indians. He has really struggled in the last week, and was pulled in the ninth inning of Clevelands 6-3 win on Friday night. "We told him, for now, were going to kind of get you out of that role and try to get you in some situations where we can get him on a roll again," Francona said. "I told him numerous times, because I mean it, the goal is to get him back as our closer, and I think he understands that. I dont want him to do it in like two days because I dont want some Band-Aid. I want him when he gets it, to take it and stay there," he said. A group of four relievers that includes Cody Allen, Scott Atchison, Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw could all get opportunities to fill the role. "The one thing I assured them is that when we get to the ninth, whoevers pitching, were not going to have four guys warming up because we think youre good," Francona said. Axford was signed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract as a free agent in December after pitching for Milwaukee and St. Louis last season. The one-time Brewers closer had 105 saves from 2010-12, and converted 49 straight save chances during a stretch. The Brewers traded an ineffective Axford to St. Louis in late August. Axford became a reliable reliever for the Cardinals down the stretch and pitched for them in the World Series. The Indians hoped the 31-year-old righty would do well replacing former All-Star closer Chris Perez, now with the Los Angeles Dodgers. But Axfords rough patch started last Sunday, when he gave up a three-run homer to Dayan Viciedo in the ninth inning of a 4-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox. The next day, Eduardo Escobar homered in the 10th off Axford and lifted Minnesota to a 1-0 win. Axfords latest tough outing came Friday night. He entered in the ninth with a 6-2 lead, but gave up David DeJesus RBI double with two outs and then walked Ben Zobrist to load the bases. Allen replaced Axford and got a fly ball from James Loney on a 3-2 pitch for his first save. Anton Forsberg Jersey . Then youve got to worry about the other up and coming teams in the two weaker divisions in the "Junior Circuit".

Playing in his fourth major league game, Polanco broke a tie in the 13th inning with his first homer, helping Pittsburgh to an 8-6 victory over the Miami Marlins after the Pirates had a ninth-inning meltdown.The Montreal Canadiens look to cool down the red-hot Boston Bruins in Wednesdays Atlantic Division clash at the Bell Centre. Listen to the game live on TSN 690 at 7:30pm et. The first-place Bruins set their season-high for consecutive wins on Sunday, beating the Florida Panthers 5-2 on the road for their fifth straight victory. Boston hasnt claimed six straight contests since Feb. 17-March 2 of last season. The Canadiens are one point behind Toronto for third place in the Atlantic, with the top three teams in each division earning an automatic bid to the postseason. The Bruins recent hot streak has helped push the clubs lead atop the division to 11 points over the Maple Leafs. Although the Bruins enter Wednesdays clash on a hot streak and Montreal has lost two straight and three of its last four games, the Canadiens have had the upper hand in recent meetings with Boston. The Habs are 2-0 against the Bruins so far in 2013-14 and have won have five straight overall in the series. The Canadiens are also 7-2-1 over the last 10 regular-season meetings against Boston at the Bell Centre. Boston picked up its most recent victory against the Panthers over the weekend. The clubs were tied at 1-1 after 40 minutes before the Bruins used a dominant third period to record the 5-2 decision. Carl Soderberg and Patrice Bergeron each posted a goal and an assist in the win. Chris Kelly, Torey Krug and Jarome Iginla also scored for the Bruins, while Chad Johnson gave up two goals on 22 shots in the win. The victory briefly pushed the Bruins ahead of Pittsburgh for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, but the Penguins have won twice since then and are currently three points in front of Boston. "We talked about it before the game that Pittsburgh wasnt playing tonight and we were only one point behind them, so it was a big game for us and I think we played a solid road game to come out with the two points," said Bergeron. John Hayden Jersey. The win came in the middle test of a three-game road trshutout on Saturdayip that is set to end tonight in Montreal. The Bruins have won three straight on the road and are 17-10-3 away from Beantown this season. Montreal is glad to be home on Wednesday after going 1-3-0 on a recent tour of Pacific Division cities. The rough trek dropped the Habs to 17-14-2 as the visiting team this season. The Canadiens are 18-10-5 as the host in 2013-14 and are playing two straight and four of their next five games at the Bell Centre. The Habs were outscored by a combined margin of 9-2 in dropping the last two games of their trip, losing 5-2 in Phoenix on Thursday before getting dealt a 4-0 setback Saturday at San Jose. While Sharks netminder Antti Niemi pitched a shutout on Saturday, Habs goaltender Peter Budaj gave up two goals on 11 shots before being pulled early in the second period for the Canadiens. Dustin Tokarski gave up the other two goals on 22 shots in relief. "We played terrible," said Canadiens Max Pacioretty. "We didnt play our game plan, we just played awful." With No. 1 goaltender Carey Price dealing with a lower-body issue, Budaj could get the start again on Wednesday. Price anchored Team Canada to a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, but also returned from Russia with an injury that has kept him sidelined for the first seven games after the break. Price faced shots at practice on Tuesday and could be nearing a return to game action, but he isnt expected to suit up for tonights tilt. The Canadiens, however, could get forward Brandon Prust back on Wednesday for the first time since the Olympic break. Prust, who has five goals and six assists over 48 games this season, last played on Feb. 8 when he suffered an upper-body injury.
