I was going to my room and I saw this kid with a bag. I said, `You must be De La Cruz. He laughed. We havent seen him pitch. But Ive shaken his hand.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: C Roberto Perez (broken right thumb) is moving closer to game action. Francona said Perez might play as a DH in a minor league rehab game as soon as this weekend.

PETERSBURG, Fla. EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Tyler OConnors stats were fine, and Michigan State won.The night still could have been a lot better.OConnor threw for 190 yards and three touchdowns, and the 12th-ranked Spartans held off upset-minded Furman 28-13 on Friday. OConnor went 13 of 18 with an interception in his second career start, but Michigan State let the Paladins hang around for a while in the opener for both teams.I try to do things 100 percent right all the time, and I dont think I did that today, OConnor said. A wins a win, were OK with it, but we have a lot of things we have to fix up. We stopped ourselves more than they stopped us, we think.OConnor, a fifth-year senior, is taking over as Michigan States No. 1 quarterback after spending the past three seasons backing up Connor Cook.Michigan State was merely serviceable on offense for most of the night, and that was good enough against Furman. LJ Scott ran for 105 yards and a touchdown.Down 21-13, Furman took over at the Michigan State 44 with 11:49 remaining after OConnors pass was intercepted. But P.J. Blazejowskis pass was picked off on the very next play -- linebacker Andrew Dowell made a diving, one-handed grab to give the Spartans the ball back.OConnor threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Lyles with 4:55 remaining to make it 28-13.Were down by eight points and weve got the ball at midfield, Furman coach Bruce Fowler said. Thats a pretty good spot for us to be in against a Big Ten opponent. Well see if we build on it.The Spartans have won 18 home openers in a row.THE TAKEAWAYFurman: Blazejowski and Reese Hannon were listed together atop the depth chart at QB, but it was Blazejowski who got the call, with Fowler going with the junior over his fifth-year senior. Blazejowski went 15 of 30 for 123 yards with an interception, and the Paladins looked better offensively as the game progressed.P.J. did a good job. He got some experience but he was pretty good with the football, Fowler said. The guy made a heck of a play on the innterception. Air Jordan 6 Unc Pre Order. Michigan State: The Spartans were underwhelming after scoring a touchdown on their opening drive. Michigan State split carries fairly evenly between LJ Scott, Madre London and Gerald Holmes last season, but on Friday it was Scott who did most of the work. London had only five carries and Holmes didnt have any.Michigan State had 10 penalties for 120 yards, which was part of the reason the Spartans had trouble putting the game away earlier.I think the key to anything is how you handle disappointment or how you handle some things that dont go right for you, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. Were not going to lose our mind over there. Were going to keep coaching and coach for the next play.CONNECTIONOConnors top target was fifth-year senior Monty Madaris, who caught five passes for 85 yards. Madaris had only seven catches in his career prior to this game.KEY NUMBERSFurman: The Paladins had 15 yards of offense in the first quarter and 211 after that. They finished with 18 first downs, only one fewer than Michigan State. Furman had the ball for 11:47 in the third quarter.Michigan State: The Spartans held Furman to field goals on two of its three trips to the red zone.POLL IMPLICATIONSMICHIGAN STATE : This wasnt a particularly stylish win for the Spartans, but a few teams above them have tough openers, so Michigan State could move in the ranking if theres any upheaval in the top 10.UP NEXTFurman: The Paladins can be pleased with their effort against the defending Big Ten champions. They play at The Citadel next weekend.Michigan State: The Spartans have an open date -- and a lot to work on -- before playing at Notre Dame on Sept. 17.Weve got two weeks to fix any problems we have and get ready for Notre Dame, Dantonio said. Im sure itll be quite the challenge down there.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtristerCheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
