ATLANTA -- Corey Kluber insists no one in the Cleveland clubhouse is talking about the Indians longest winning streak in 34 years.Outside those walls, however, the Indians are big news as the hottest team in the majors.Carlos Santana hit a tie-breaking single in Clevelands three-run ninth inning, Kluber allowed only three hits in eight innings and the Indians beat the Atlanta Braves 5-3 on Tuesday night for their 11th straight win.The winning streak is the longest in the majors this season and also Clevelands longest since it won 11 straight from May 23-June 4, 1982.Kluber didnt sound impressed.No one is really talking about the winning streak, he said. We realize we are playing well right now. Were just trying to keep that going. Ultimately, an 11-game game winning streak doesnt mean much if you dont continue to build the momentum that you have.The Indians won 12 straight in 1922. The longest streaks in franchise history were 13 games in 1942 and 1951.Kluber (8-7) didnt allow a hit through five innings. He allowed two runs on three hits and one walk with seven strikeouts.Cleveland increased its AL Central lead to six games over second-place Kansas City, which lost 8-4 to St. Louis.Arodys Vizcaino (1-3) walked Tyler Naquin to open the ninth and then walked Juan Uribe on four pitches. With pinch-runner Rajai Davis at first base, and one out, Santanas single to right field drove in Naquin.Braves shortstop Erick Aybar mishandled Francisco Lindors grounder for an error, allowing Davis to score. Jose Ramirez added a run-scoring single up the middle.Atlantas Jace Peterson hit a homer off Cody Allen in the ninth, giving him a nine-game hitting streak.Freddie Freeman added a triple off the center-field wall before Allen ended the game on Nick Markakis fly ball to left field for his 15th save.Cody didnt get rattled, and he got the out, Indians manager Terry Francona said.Ender Inciartes two-run single in the sixth tied the game.Atlanta right-hander Matt Wisler set a career high with nine strikeouts and allowed two runs on six hits in six innings.CONFIRMEDA review confirmed Inciarte was out on a close play at first after Santana bobbled a grounder before tossing to Allen at the bag.Braves interim manager Brian Snitker and outfielder Jeff Francoeur, who was not playing, came out of the dugout to argue. Bench coach Terry Pendleton pulled Francoeur back to the dugout.I felt like I beat the throw, Inciarte said. He didnt even have the ball. I dont know what theyre doing in New York. I dont know what the deal is.LAYNE UPDATEUmpire Jerry Layne, who left Monday nights game in the eighth inning after he was hit by a foul tip from Markakis behind the plate, was at Turner Field on Tuesday but was held out of the game. He was staggered when the foul tip hit his jaw beyond the area covered by his mask. It was not known if Layne will work Wednesday nights game.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: OF Michael Brantley, on the 15-day DL with right biceps tendinitis, has been taking swings for two straight days and by all accounts really did well, Francona said. Brantley, who had surgery on his right shoulder in November, landed on the DL for the second time this season on May 14.Braves: RHP John Gant was placed on the 15-day DL with a left oblique strain which forced him out of Monday nights start. Its going to be a while, Snitker said. ... RHP Mike Foltynewicz (right elbow soreness) will make what is expected to be his final rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.UP NEXTIndians: RHP Danny Salazar (9-3, 2.40) will bring the ALs second-lowest ERA into what will probably be the Indians final game at Turner Field on Wednesday night. He lost to the Braves on Aug. 27, 2013 in his fifth major league start.Braves: RHP Joel De La Cruz will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett for his major league debut. De La Cruz is 1-3 with a 4.74 ERA in 21 appearances with Gwinnett, and his ERA is 3.38 in five starts.

PARIS -- Although coach Unai Emery argues that his Paris Saint-Germain team is learning to live without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, theyre clearly not completely over him quite yet.While Ibrahimovic was again making a difference for his new club, scoring twice for Manchester United in a 4-1 English League Cup win against West Ham, PSG had to rely Wednesday night on a rare goal from captain Thiago Silva and an Edinson Cavani penalty for a 2-0 victory against Angers that lifted the defending champions to second in Frances Ligue 1, behind Nice.This was far less comfortable for PSG than the 5-1 humbling it inflicted on the Loire Valley side in their last league meeting in January. Ibrahimovic opened PSGs account in that game, another notch in his mind-boggling tally of 50 goals in 51 games in what proved to be his last season in the French capital.Hatem Ben Arfa was PSGs standout player this time, the wingers pace and guile injecting urgency into an often pedestrian PSG performance that was nonetheless enjoyed, despite the lack of goals from open play, by a Parc des Princes crowd in fine voice.A dribbling Ben Arfa foray, one of many, into the Angers box provoked a foul from defender Romain Thomas and a penalty that Cavaani converted decisively in the 66th minute.dddddddddddd The striker dedicated his 100th PSG goal to Chapecoense, peeling off his jersey to reveal a T-shirt bearing the logo of the Brazilian team devastated in a plane crash in Colombia.Silva outran his marker to meet Lucas corner kick and head the ball past Angers `keeper Mathieu Michel for PSGs opening goal, and his first of the season, in the 34th minute.The win kept PSG in touch with Nice, which needed a mesmerizing goal and skills from Younes Belhanda to beat Guingamp 1-0 and reclaim top spot from Monaco, which had been the overnight leader Tuesday after drawing 1-1 at Dijon. Nice now has 36 points from 15 matches. PSG has 35, with Monaco on 33.Belhanda danced right to wrong-foot the Guingamp defense, carving himself space to send a curling shot into the left-hand top corner of the goal, beyond the outstretched dive of Guingamp `keeper Karl-Johan Johnsson.He celebrated the early strike, in just the fifth minute, with somersaults.Lyon climbed to fourth place with a 6-0 thumping of Nantes, which slipped into the relegation zone.
