CLEVELAND -- Billy Butlers bat flip gave the Cleveland Indians the boost they needed Saturday night. Saucony Jazz Original Femme .The Indians answered Butlers flip after his game-tying home run in the fourth with a four-run inning that propelled Cleveland to a 6-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.Butler and Cleveland catcher Chris Gimenez exchanged words during the at-bat, which ended when Butler homered into the left-field bleachers, a drive that traveled an estimated 440 feet.Butler tossed his bat several feet from home plate, which began a shouting match between the two players. Gimenez paced around the home plate area as Butler slowly rounded the bases.I kind of took offense to the whole situation, Gimenez said. I felt like there was a little bit of showmanship right there. I was definitely not thrilled that he turned around and screamed in my face. I let him know I would be waiting for him when he got back.Umpire Trip Gibson stood beside Gimenez during Butlers trip around the bases and then issued warnings to both dugouts.I imagine he wasnt too happy with me just like I was still not happy with him, Butler said. Thats all it is. I got no personal problem with Chris.Gimenez agreed there were no issues between the two players, but thought the incident may have given the Indians a spark.Things like that are going to happen, he said. It wont be the last time. It kind of rallied the troops, Ill take it.Abraham Almonte and Mike Napoli homered in the fourth. Jason Kipnis drove in two runs and homered while Jose Ramirez also went deep for the AL Central-leading Indians.Josh Tomlin (11-3) allowed two runs in seven innings and moved into a tie with Danny Salazar for the team lead in wins.Dillon Overton (1-2), recalled from Triple-A Nashville before the game, gave up five runs and 10 hits, including three homers, in 3 1/3 innings.Danny Valencias two-out single gave Oakland the lead in the first, but Kipnis hit his 17th home run, tying a career high, in the bottom of the inning.Ramirez led off the second with a home run. Butlers homer tied the game, but Cleveland responded. Almonte homered to start the inning and Kipnis RBI double finished Overton.Napoli hit his team-leading 23rd homer to dead center off Liam Hendricks.Tomlin praised his teammates for rallying after he allowed Butlers home run.That was awesome, he said. That kind of quieted them down and gave me a cushion.Marcus Semien homered with two out in the ninth off Indians closer Cody Allen.Butler and Gimenez both voiced minor disagreement with Gibsons strike zone prior to the home run, which led to them exchanging words with each other.Butler was loudly booed in his next two at-bats by the crowd of 32,850. He walked in the seventh and flied out in the ninth.SOMEONES WATCHINGGimenez had some second thoughts about losing his temper as Butler completed his home run trot.Would my wife want my kids seeing me do something? he said.

RICHMOND, Va. -- It was yet another Denny Hamlin runaway for Joe Gibbs Racing on Saturday night in what turned out to be an anticlimactic end to NASCARs regular season.The fireworks came off the track at Richmond International Raceway, where Ryan Newman angrily chided former boss Tony Stewart after an accident between the two officially ended Newmans chances to make the playoffs.The verbal beat down from Newman came with 37 laps left, before Hamlin finished off his third career Sprint Cup win at his home track while giving JGR its third consecutive victory at the track and ninth in the last 15 races.Newman called Stewart bipolar, said the retiring race car driver had anger issues, and all but outright referenced the 2014 incident in which Stewart fatally struck a sprint car driver.I guess he thought he was in a sprint car again and didnt know how to control his anger, Newman said after the two made contact three times before finally wrecking. Dylan Lupton couldnt avoid the accident and his car ended up wedged between the wall and on top of Newmans car when the crashing finally ceased.The wreckage caused a stoppage of just over 20 minutes and sent Newmans temperature soaring. Newmans team was penalized 15 points this week by NASCAR for failing post-race inspection at Darlington, and the punishment made his task of trying to race his way into the Chase extremely difficult.But few expected him to be so harsh toward Stewart, who employed Newman for five years until Newman was let go from Stewart-Haas Racing at the end of the 2013 season.Just disappointing that you have somebody old like that that should be retired the way he drives. Its just ridiculous, Newman said. I dont think there was any reason other than him just being bipolar and having anger issues. Google Tony Stewart, youll see all kinds of things hes done. Look itt up on YouTube, everything else. Nike Vapormax Femme Pas Cher. Quite the guy.Stewart is retiring at the end of the season and already had his spot in the Chase secure headed into Richmond.There were three spots available in the Chase at the start of the night, but Newman was going to need a near-miracle.He didnt get it, and the remaining playoff positions in the 16-driver field went to rookie Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon and Jamie McMurray. Chris Buescher also made the Chase by virtue of his win at a rain-shortened race and by maintaining a spot in the top 30 in points.The rest of the Chase field is made up of the other 12 race winners this season.JIMMIES LONG NIGHT: Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson didnt appear to be Chase ready in the final tuneup. He had a tire go down, hit the wall, and his crew had an uncontrolled tire on pit road during Johnsons 11th-place finish. Although he has two wins this year, hes at career lows in nearly every category, including laps led.BUSTED BLANEY: It was a short night for Ryan Blaney, who guessed stubbornness was to blame for an accident just 11 laps into the race. Blaney made contact with Trevor Bayne that caused a flat tire and sent Blaney into the wall. He was baffled because he thought he was clear of Bayne, but figured Bayne thought otherwise and neither driver would yield.I should know better than that, Blaney said. We didnt even give ourselves a shot at it, that is something I will have regret about.UP NEXT: The opening race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship on Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. The field starts with 16 drivers, which will be whittled down over nine rounds to create a final four to race for the title Nov. 20 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
