SAN DIEGO -- U.S. Sailing is turning to two-time gold medalist Malcolm Page of Australia to try to turn around the American Olympic teams sagging fortunes.The national governing body hired Page as chief of Olympic sailing on Monday.Page won gold medals in the 470 class at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.Thats one more medal combined than the United States won in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. The Americans were shut out in 2012, the first time that happened since 1936, and won just one medal at the Rio Games in August, a bronze in the Finn class by Caleb Paine of San Diego.Page said in a phone interview that standing on the Olympic podium representing Australia was one of his most special accomplishments.But hes wanted to get back to the performance side of the sport, and leading the U.S. Olympic team was too good of a chance to pass up.Im a competitor, he said. I hate losing, and Im excited to be here and to be involved and to assist. Im looking forward to seeing these athletes realizing their dreams. I want to help them get to that point.Page, who currently is head of marketing and media for World Sailing, replaces Josh Adams, who is leaving U.S. Sailing to tend to his family business.The United States has won the most Olympic sailing medals in history, 60, but the well-funded British team has quickly pulled within one. Plus, the Brits lead the Americans in gold medals, 28 to 19.The United States dominated Olympic sailing in the 1980s and early 1990s before Britain, Australia and New Zealand began overtaking it.U.S. Sailing President Bruce Burton said there were American candidates for the job, but that Page is a great fit for what we need because he brings a template of the success the Australians had in rebuilding their Olympic program. Burton said the Australians hired top coaches, put together a strategic plan and found the money to compete at a high level.The Australians were shut out in the 2004 Athens games despite having several world champions and top-ranked sailors on their team.I was one of those world champions and world No. 1s leading into the games and I took a solid 12th, Page said.He said athletes initiated a review and the federation took over to restore the program. The Aussies responded with two golds and one silver at Beijing in 2008, and three golds and one silver in London, when the Aussies, including Page, outperformed the powerful British team.Burton said U.S. Sailing needed a different point of view.Weve been looking in the mirror quite a bit but we need a different picture, he said. We think we needed a little bit different perspective and we think Malcolm does a great job of bringing that perspective.U.S. Sailing is working to direct more resources to the national team and a youth development effort.Including Paine, Americans finished in the Top-10 in six classes in Rio.I think the potential in the U.S. is through the roof and I mean that from so many different levels, Page said. It has a huge population and a huge talent base. That talent base hasnt been lost even though you havent been as successful. And also the wealth potential, the funding potential, is there as well. We just need a cohesive approach and a cohesive team to pull it all together, which I do believe the journey started four years ago on that.---Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/berniewilson Netherlands Jerseys From China .

TORONTO -- A dominant performance from Carlos Carrasco gave the Cleveland Indians their longest winning streak in nearly 65 years.Carrasco struck out a season-high 14, Jason Kipnis and Rajai Davis hit solo home runs and the Indians matched a franchise record by winning their 13th consecutive game Thursday night, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1.Manager Terry Francona said Carrasco pitched his heart out.Thats a good lineup and he really pitched well, Francona said.Clevelands streak is the longest by any team this season, and the longest for the Indians since they won 13 straight in August 1951. Cleveland also won 13 in a row in 1942.Its the longest streak by an AL team since Oakland won 20 straight in 2002.The Indians went 22-6 in June, the best single month in team history.It feels great, Carrasco said. Weve played really hard and we need to continue that. Everything is coming together.Indians starting pitchers are 10-0 during the streak, and Cleveland has outscored its opponents 80-26.We expect to win every night we step on the field, Davis said. Weve just got to keep that mindset and not worry about everything else.Still, Francona doesnt want his players getting too excited.You turn the page pretty quick, he said. If you start taking time to sit back and evaluate (what happened) two weeks ago, then tomorrow might not be so good.Coming off a four-hit shutout victory at Detroit, Carrasco (4-2) allowed one run and three hits in 7 1/3 innings to win back-to-back starts for the first time since April 13 and 19. The right-hander was sidelined from April 25 to June 2 with a strained left hamstring.No doubt about it, it was Carrascos night, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. He was on.Carrascos career-high in strikeouts is 15, set last Sept. 25 at Kansas City. Against Toronto, he struck out four straight in the third and fourth innings, then fanned six straight in the sixth, seventh and eighth.Bryan Shaw replaced Carrasco after Darwin Barney ended the strikeout streak with a double. Shaw struck out pinch hitter Russell Martin, walked Ezequiel Carrera, then fanned Josh Donaldsson to end the inning.ddddddddddddCody Allen got the last three outs for his 17th save.Davis hit a leadoff shot off R.A. Dickey in the second and Kipnis hit a one-out drive in the third.They ran into a few that didnt do much, Dickey said.Dickey (5-9) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings. The knuckleballer has allowed six home runs in his past two starts, all of them solo shots. He is 0-6 with a 5.14 ERA in eight home starts.Donaldson provided Torontos only offense with a two-out solo homer off Carrasco in the fourth.FAN CLUBToronto struck out 10 or more times for the 24th time this season. They did it 28 times in all of 2015. The Blue Jays finished with 17 strikeouts, their most since fanning 17 times against Texas on July 18, 2014.STILL STREAKINGKipnis extended his hitting streak to a season-high 12 games.FAMILIAR FACESCleveland and Toronto met for the first time since longtime Indians employee Mark Shapiro took over as president of the Blue Jays last November. Shapiro also hired former Cleveland colleague Ross Atkins to serve as Torontos GM. Shapiro was with the Indians for 24 years before joining Toronto.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: OF Michael Brantley (right shoulder) continues to hit in the cage and do soft toss drills without pain, manager Terry Francona said.
