PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery after being stabbed during an attempted carjacking early Saturday morning. Coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that the 23-year-old Adams understands how lucky he is that he was not more seriously hurt during the incident on the citys South Side. "Obviously, its an unfortunate situation, but hes very blessed to be in the position that hes in," Tomlin said. Adams told officers he was standing near his truck shortly after 3 a.m. when he was confronted by three men, one armed with a knife and one armed with a handgun. Adams told police the trio tried to carjack him, but he didnt have his car keys. He said "the situation escalated" and one man pointed the gun at his face while the other stabbed him twice before all three fled, according to police. Adams went into a nearby restaurant to seek help and was later taken to UPMC Mercy, where he had surgery for stab wounds to the abdomen and left forearm. He is expected to be released by Tuesday afternoon. Police said Monday that 25-year-old Michael Paranay of Pittsburgh was arrested and taken to Allegheny County jail on charges of criminal attempted homicide, aggravated assault, attempted robbery and conspiracy. A listed number for him could not be found and it was unclear whether he had an attorney. Tomlin visited Adams following the attack and said the teams second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Ohio State is in good spirits. "We recognize the world that we live in, and things like this are capable of happening," Tomlin said. "Not that we accept it, but we understand that its capable of happening." Adams is expected to be the teams starting right tackle but will be prevented from participating in football activities for several weeks. The Steelers are in the midst of organized team activities and open training camp in late July. Barring a setback, Tomlin anticipates Adams to be ready when camp begins, though football wasnt at the forefront of Tomlins concern. The coach also cautioned about the potential issues that can arise in the citys popular bar district. "We need to recognize that some things are going on that are on the South Side that make it a dangerous place, particularly after hours, and we all need to take proper precautions," Tomlin said. "And, hopefully, as a community, well take the steps necessary to assure that this doesnt to anyone, whether its a Pittsburgh Steeler or no." Adams has been active on his Twitter feed during his hospital stay, responding to well wishes, including a note from Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller. "You cant beat a buckeye," Adams tweeted after Miller tweeted that Adams was "all good." Brendan Gallagher Jersey . PAUL, Minn.

"The storys about Ryan Raburn doing his thing," Masterson said. "That was pretty cool to see." Raburn homered twice and drove in four runs as the Indians, who have won 13 of 17, completed a four-game sweep of the reeling White Sox. Raburn, who has played a major role off manager Terry Franconas bench, hit a two-run homer in the third, had an RBI single in the fifth and belted a leadoff home run in the seventh. He has 13 homers and 37 RBIs in 173 at-bats while playing mostly against left-handed starters. "I prepare myself the same way every day whether Im playing or not," Raburn said. "This is one of those years where everything is going right for me. Im trying to hold on to it and ride it as long as I can." Francona pushed for Clevelands front office to sign Raburn, even though he batted .171 with 12 RBIs in 66 games with Detroit last season. He began the season as the Tigers second baseman but things quickly regressed and he was benched before being sent to the minors. "He got off to a horrendous start and never really recovered," Francona said. "That happens to a lot of players. We were able to get him because of that. In the role hes in, he does a great job." The Indians, who have beaten the White Sox eight straight times, moved to within two games of idle Detroit in the American League Central. "Credit them," Chicago manager Robin Ventura said. "They just outplayed us. Today is probably magnified because of what happened earlier in the series." Cleveland also swept a four-game series in Chicago from June 28-30. Chicago has dropped seven in a row and is 26 games under .500 for the first time since 1980. The White Sox have lost 13 of 16 and have the second-worst record in the AL. The Indians, who are a season-high 12 games over .500, won all seven games of their homestand, which began with a three-game sweep against Texas. Cleveland outscored the opposition 40-20 during the seven-game stretch. Masterson outpitched Chris Sale (6-11) in a matchup of All-Star hurlers. Masterson ((13-7) gave up one run in 6 2-3 innings and has won all four of his starts against Chicago this season, allowing three earned runs in 31 2-3 innings.dddddddddddd Raburns home run off Sale in the third was towering fly ball to right that was pushed by the wind and curled inside the foul pole. He added an RBI single in the Indians two-run fifth and hit a leadoff homer off Dylan Axelrod in the seventh that landed in the left field bleachers. Mastersons bid for his fourth shutout of the season ended on Alejandro De Azas leadoff homer in the sixth. The right-hander was pulled with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh but Rich Hill got De Aza to hit into a fielders choice. Masterson allowed five hits, struck out seven and walked three. He threw complete game shutouts against the White Sox on April 12 in Cleveland, a five-hitter, and on June 30, a six-hitter at U.S. Cellular Field. Francona said Masterson was battling a stiff neck but the pitcher didnt think that affected him. "I felt all right," Masterson said. "I was leaving a few sinkers out there at times. I was pitching and battling and trying to make things work. The overall sense is we played well as a team." Sale has lost all three of his starts against the Indians this season. The left-hander is 1-9 in his last 11 starts but has a 3.24 ERA in that stretch. Mark Reynolds run-scoring single -- his second RBI since June 29 -- gave Cleveland the lead in the second. Asdrubal Cabrera added a sacrifice fly. NOTES: Indians OF Michael Brantley struck out in all three at-bats against Sale and is 2 for 16 with eight strikeouts against the left-hander this season. ... RHP Vinnie Pestano, optioned to Triple-A Columbus when the Indians acquired LHP Marc Rzepczynski , pitched a scoreless inning against Buffalo on Wednesday. ... Indians OF Michael Bourn, who was 1 for 10 in the series, was not in the starting lineup. All-Star 2B Jason Kipnis also was given the day off. ... Chicago LHP Hector Santiago (3-6) faces Tigers RHP Doug Fister (9-5) on Friday. The clubs play 12 times over the final two months of the season. ... The Indians make their first trip to Marlins Park for a three-game series. Cleveland RHP Ubaldo Jimenez (8-5) takes on Miami RHP Jose Fernandez (7-5) in the opener Friday.
