LOS ANGELES -- The Cleveland Indians had plenty to talk about on the flight home at the end of a 4-4 road trip. There were back-to-back losses in one-hit shutouts, and a rare 7-2-4 triple play that required two video replays to confirm. There was also the three-run eighth inning they had against Brian Wilson on Wednesday, which Mike Aviles capped with a two-run single en route to a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. "We went 4-4, but it seems like we were gone a month," manager Terry Francona said. "Its been a long trip, and this was a good way to end it. We won a tough game. That was a good one to win." After Scott Atchison gave up a solo homer by Scott Van Slyke in the eighth, Cody Allen got four outs for his eighth save. He retired Matt Kemp on a flyball to the warning track with the potential tying and winning runs in scoring position. Ryan Raburn homered off Hyun-Jin Ryu, who was lifted after seven with a 3-2 lead. But Wilson (1-3) retired only one of the six batters he faced, giving up a tying single by pinch-hitter David Murphy and Aviles clutch hit after an intentional walk to Lonnie Chisenhall. "Anytime you can get a hit and some RBIs, its always great," Aviles said. "I was just looking for pitch up. I know he throws a bunch of cutters and he throws hard. Hes been a good pitcher for a long time. "The arms that are coming out of that bullpen are pretty interesting, and theyre definitely good. So youve got to piece together some ABs and try and do things together," he added. "I definitely have faith in our bullpen. So I knew if we got a couple of runs there, it would work out well. Its always great when you can sneak out with a win at the end." Wilson had allowed one run in his previous 19 appearances, spanning 16 2-3 innings. "Brians been throwing well. I dont know how many innings hes thrown before today without giving up a run, but it seemed like a while," said Van Slyke, who threw a runner at home plate from right field. "When you make a mistake, it usually ends up biting you. Hopefully, thats out of the way and he can start a new streak." Brian Shaw (3-1) pitched a scoreless seventh to get the victory. Ryu allowed two runs and seven hits, struck out eight, and hit an RBI double that triggered a three-run fifth. The left-hander did not walk a batter, his 13th straight outing with fewer than three bases on balls. Dodgers starting pitchers have issued fewer than three walks in 36 consecutive games, tying the 2005 Minnesota Twins for the longest such streak in the modern era (since 1900). Dodgers rookie Miguel Rojas, who has made dazzling plays all over the infield since his promotion from Triple-A -- one of which preserved Clayton Kershaws no-hitter on June 18 -- made his seventh start at third base and robbed Michael Brantley of an RBI in the fifth with a diving backhanded grab of his line drive toward the line. "The past 10 or 15 days, Michaels hit a lot of balls hard but right at people. So I thought he could use a hug right there," Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer said. "I think he was still kind of upset about the outcome of that play." Carlos Santana followed with a sharp single to right field, but Van Slyke made a one-hop throw to catcher A.J. Ellis for the tag on Asdrubal Cabrera. The plays by Rojas and Van Slyke prevented the Indians from increasing their 2-0 lead, and may have kept Ryu in the game with 80 pitches already in the bank. He came up in the bottom half and roped a two-out RBI double that scored Rojas all the way from first base. Bauer then walked Dee Gordon and Ellis, loading the bases, and Andre Ethier lined a 2-2 pitch to centre for a two-run single that put Los Angeles ahead 3-2. "I just missed with some pitches. I felt a little out of synch that whole inning," Bauer said. Bauer gave up three runs and six hits over 5 2-3 innings. The 23-year-old righty from UCLA, born in North Hollywood and pitching in California for the first time in the majors, remained 0-5 in nine career road starts with a 6.64 ERA. NOTES: Kershaw, picked Wednesday as NL Pitcher of the Month for June after winning all six starts with an 0.82 ERA and 61 strikeouts, starts Friday nights series opener at Colorado against the pitcher who opposed him in his no-hitter on June 18 -- Jorge De La Rosa. ... Chisenhall entered Wednesday hitting .344, three points shy of league leader Jose Altuve of Houston -- but was five plate appearances shy of the number he needed to qualify for the AL batting race.

And the difference between the two is a head-scratcher. After getting the hook 5:39 into the second on Saturday night in Toronto, Ryan Millers performance got me thinking (which is always a dangerous exercise). It started with a simple question: how can the same guy be among the National Hockey League leaders with 16 victories but also have been lifted in three of his five defeats? And since Miller has been pulled three times (including each of the last two Saturday appearances), I began wondering about his save percentage late in the hockey games he finished. Because when hes been on top of his game, it has almost always been in third periods this season when hes been able to shut the door and preserve victories for the hockey club. And as it turns out, his third period performances are off the charts good – one of the big reasons Miller is 7-0 in one-goal games so far this season. But getting to the third period has at times proved problematic. And so the project became a closer look at the goals Miller has allowed and his save percentage period by period. The results are startling. The following chart lays out Millers body of work so far, broken down into the three periods and overtime: Ryan Miller in 2014-15 season PERIOD GOALS SHOTS SAVE PCT. 1 17 176 90.3 2 26 183 85.8 3 8 174 95.4 OT 0 1 100 TOTAL 51 534 90.4 The shot totals for each of the three periods are similar and in the case of first and third periods almost identical. So its not like Millers workload has increased dramatically from one period to the next. But the goals allowed are inexplicable. Sure, the second period has the long change for both teams and that may lead to a few more scoring chances, but not enough to blow the doors off. How can a netminder allow more than three times as many goals in the second period as he does in the third? And twice as many goals in the first frame as the final one? His third period save percentage would win him the Vezina in a heartbeat if he could play that way all night, every night. But his second period save percentage wouuldnt allow him to keep his job in the NHL if his numbers were like that across the board.dddddddddddd Its been made clear since the day he signed with the Canucks that Ryan Miller is a rhythm goalie and the period-by-period breakdown is simply more irrefutable proof. When hes on his game and in a groove, Miller has been terrific for the Canucks in third periods this season, giving up just eight goals in the final periods of hockey games. And only once – October 30 versus Montreal – has Miller surrendered more than a single goal in any of the 18 third periods hes played. The Habs got to him twice that night, but he still pulled out an overtime victory. Contrast that with the fact that twice this season Miller has been torched for three goals in first periods and on two other occasions it has happened to him in seconds. He has allowed multiple goals in the first period six times in his 21 starts and nine times in second periods. When Miller gets off to a tough start, it has at times been a struggle to regain his form and focus. But on the nights Ryan Miller successfully navigates his personal mine fields, he has been a remarkable closer. While the numbers in the table above outline Millers season as a whole, the pattern has held true on the Canucks current road trip. Has has allowed four first period goals, five second period markers and has surrendered just a pair of third period goals. And over that time, he has posted a shutout in Columbus, been pulled in Toronto and split his results in Detroit and Washington. Its hard to figure out after all these years how a veteran of so many NHL battles still needs time to work his way into games. And harder still to make sense of why when hes on everything is great, but when hes not he has trouble surviving second periods. Ultimately, hockey is a results-oriented business and Ryan Millers bottom line looks awfully good at 16-5 despite having his evening cut short on Saturday. Without question, hes been a big part of the Canucks success this season. Hes developed a knack of being there when the Canucks need him most and the numbers show hes been very good when games are on the line. So sure there may have been some potholes in the first 40 minutes of hockey games so far this season, but its pretty evident that third periods have been Miller time.
