CLEVELAND -- Once he rounded the bases a second time, propelled by a roaring crowd at Progressive Field, Roberto Perez began to understand what he had done. Arthur Moats Jersey .I dont think Ive ever had a night like that, the?Indians catcher said.He picked a good time for it.Known almost exclusively for his defense, Perez provided plenty of pop in Game 1 of the World Series, hitting a pair of homers -- a solo shot and a three-run drive -- as the Indians rolled to their fourth shutout of the postseason, 6-0 over the Chicago Cubs, on Tuesday night.The Indians love Perezs glove, arm and ability to frame pitches. Any offense they get from him is a bonus.All he did in his debut on baseballs biggest stage was become the first Indians hitter with a multihomer game in the World Series. He tied the franchise record for RBIs in a World Series game with four. And he joined Manny Ramirez and Jim Thome as the only Cleveland players to hit two homers in a postseason game.Not bad for a backup catcher who batted .183 during the regular season.Ive come a long ways. Im just playing with a lot of confidence right now, said Perez, who also homered in his first at-bat of the playoffs. Im not trying to do too much at the plate. Im just trying to control my emotions. First World Series experience and just trying to go out there and compete and try to get good ABs up there and try to get on base and make something happen. Its an unbelievable feeling.The 27-year-old Perez, who had thumb surgery this season, has three homers in 27 postseason at-bats -- equaling his number in 153 at-bats during the regular season.Perez homered his first time up in the American League Division Series against the?Boston Red Sox.?On Tuesday, he became the first No. 9 batter to hit two homers in a World Series game.His teammates saw it coming.I watch how hard he works day in and day out, said Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor, who had three hits. Hes doing it for his family. Hes doing it for Puerto Rico. Its awesome to see him stepping up.Perez gave the Indians a 3-0 lead in the fourth with his homer off starter Jon Lester. The left-hander attempted to sneak an 0-1 fastball past Perez, who lined it over the 19-foot wall in left field, his shot pinging off a railing.With the Indians up 3-0 and two outs in the eighth, Perez drove a pitch from Hector Rondon into the bleachers in left, sending Indians fans into a frenzy and moving Cleveland a step closer to its first title since 1948.As he crossed home plate, Perez delivered a double high-five to teammate Lonnie Chisenhall.Perezs one-two punch flattened the Cubs. But beyond his unexpected offensive production, Perez has been excellent behind the plate in handling Clevelands pitchers, who have complimented the way he calls a game.He should be a star catcher, thats the way hes heading, Indians reliever Andrew Miller said. He doesnt even have to get a hit to validate his spot behind the plate.Perez worked the corners for starter Corey Kluber, who struck out nine Cubs -- six of them looking.For much of the season, Perez didnt come close to hitting his weight (220 pounds), and there was a long stretch when he was almost an automatic out in the lineup. But when starter Yan Gomes went down with a separated shoulder in July and then a broken wrist in September, Perez stepped in -- and the Indians havent missed a beat.Hes the latest surprise on a surprising squad of Indians.What he did at the plate tonight, my goodness, that was exciting to watch, Indians manager Terry Francona said. Everybody was happy for him. You could see the way everybody reacted to it. Cameron Heyward Jersey . Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games. Louis Lipps Jersey . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Bryce Petty was heading home to Texas a few days after the biggest game of his young NFL career to relax a little.With the New York Jets entering into their bye-week break, the second-year quarterback had his game plan prepared.Put the cowboy boots on, hang out with Mom and Dad for a little bit, so itll be good, a smiling Petty said Tuesday after the teams final practice until next week. Kind of get your mind away from things, regroup and be ready to rock and roll when we get back.What that means for Petty is still uncertain. He got his first NFL start Sunday in place of an injured Ryan Fitzpatrick in a 9-6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams , going 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown. But he also tossed an interception with just under two minutes left to seal the defeat.Fitzpatrick is recovering from a sprained left knee and the time off should help the healing process. Coach Todd Bowles hasnt committed to a starter for New Yorks game against New England on Nov. 27, saying hed make that decision next Monday.Im here to play football, Petty said. Again, for me, its control what you can control. And Ive said it before and Ill say it again: To be a good teammate, I have to be a better quarterback than I was yesterday, today. That part doesnt change (despite) whatever is going on.With the Jets struggling to a 3-7 mark and their playoff prospects fading, many fans and media think Bowles should stick with Petty to see if last years fourth-round pick out of Baylor could be the quarterback of the future.Bowles, however, is sticking to his philosophy of wanting to play whoever gives the Jets the best chance to win now. If the coach decides that its Fitzpatrick, that means Petty will go back to the sideline and wait for his next opportunity.Again, those are hypotheticals, Petty said. I try not to deal with that. Control what I can control. Being anxious, the anxiety is not something that I like to feel.You carry on about your business and as soon as you hear something, then you go to bat. Other than that, you try not to think about it.Bowles gave Petty the expected mixed review on Monday, praising him for his poise, understanding his reads and throwing some nice deep balls. The coach also pointed out some hurried throws and missed reads, typical of a player making his first start.After watching the film, Petty agreed with Bowles. He got the Jets off to a nice start, including a 99-yard touchdown drive on New Yorks second possession, but thhe offense couldnt do much more against Los Angeles. Troy Polamalu Jersey. Some good things, some bad things, he said. Again, theres always positives and then construction, I guess, put it that way. There were definitely some opportunities there to make some plays. But, overall, we moved the ball. We just have to finish drives.Quarterbacks coach Kevin Patullo said Tuesday that Petty worked hard on studying the game plan going into the matchup with the Rams and felt he was fully prepared.He did what he needed to do and today we talked about it, Patullo said. So, there is a lot to learn from it, but I think he did some good things in there.Petty injured his right shoulder in the preseason finale against Philadelphia and missed a few weeks of practice time while recovering. Patullo doesnt think that missed time stunted Pettys development in any way.He was constantly with us in the classroom, so, mentally he was always there, Patullo said. He knew the game plan. He knew what was going on with everything there.Physically, obviously, all the rehab and stuff like that, that was probably the only part that he missed and then just being in our huddle, hearing me talk to him and the play calls.But as far as classroom, he was there every day, so, he knew exactly what was going on.For now, Petty will get in some family time, but work wont be too far from his mind.Its hard to get away from it, he said. I love it. Typically, when I watch games, its implementing our plays into things and how that will work. Its hard to get away from football. Its a good thing.Game notes Defensive line coach Pepper Johnson, in one of his few media sessions of the season, opened by saying he wouldnt answer questions about the players in his unit, which has come under criticism lately with the benchings of Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson for one quarter at Miami last week. Johnson wouldnt explain why he declined to talk about his players, and the session ended abruptly. ... The Jets released T Jesse Davis from the practice squad. ... Inspirational speaker Inky Johnson was a guest of the Jets and spoke to the players before practice. Big thanks to (at)InkyJohnson for coming and talking to us today, Petty tweeted .
