CLEVELAND I dont believe in baseball Gods and Im not superstitious when it comes to baseball rituals, so here it goes: John Danks has a no-hitter through five innings pitched.

As far as the second-year lefty wanting to see what his new cutter can do in a real game, well, its working, as Tribe hitters look completely off balance.

Danks also has the lead, after Juan Uribe hit a solo home run off Cleveland starter Jake Westbrook.
