Seven regular season games left — Let’s see our Postseason scenarios


The Cleveland Indians finished play on Sunday with a 7-game lead over the Tigers with 7 games to go, and a magic number – combination of Tribe wins and Detroit losses – of ONE. Despite the Tribe’s loss to Chicago, Kansas City’s win over Detroit lowered the magic number to just one.

Here’s how the teams’ schedules shake out:

Cleveland: 4 @ DET, 3 @ KC

Detroit: 4 vs. CLE, 3 @ ATL

As we open a four-game set with Detroit, any Tribe victory will clinch the 2016 AL Central crown.

There is also the matter of home-field advantage throughout the AL Postseason, for which the Indians are one and a half games behind both the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers. If the Tribe earns the AL’s best record, the club would have home-field advantage throughout the Postseason (AL won the All-Star Game, and thus the AL rep in the World Series would have home field).

Owning the top record also would mean the Tribe would play the Wild Card Game winner (currently either Toronto or Baltimore) and not either Texas or Boston, depending on final records.

A look at Boston and Texas’ schedules as we hit the final stretch:

– 9/26-9/28: vs. Brewers in Arlington, TX
– 9/30-10/2: vs. Rays in Arlington, TX

-9/27-9/29: at Yankees in New York, NY
-9/30-10/2: vs. Blue Jays in Boston, MA

Should be a fun one to watch play out!

Indians Homestand Guide: Details on final home games vs. Twins, Red Sox


The Indians close out the 2015 regular season with a seven-game homestand against the Minnesota Twins (September 28- October 1) and Boston Red Sox (October 2- October 4). The Indians – if necessary due to Postseason implications – will make up Sept. 12’s rainout vs. the Tigers on Monday, Oct. 5.


Francisco Lindor, who made his debut in mid-June, not only has been one of the best rookies in the second half, but one of the best players in the American League, period.

Among AL rookies, Lindor ranks:

  • first in average (.320)
  • second in on-base percentage (.358)
  • second in hits (116)
  • fifth in RBI (47)


Carlos Carrasco has been named the Cleveland Indians 2015 nominee for the prestigious Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet. Carrasco, who’s also come into his own on the field – he ranks sixth in the AL in strikeouts this season — has sought out opportunities to make a difference in the lives of Cleveland-area kids and students.

Those efforts include:

  • Luis Munoz Marin School: Carrasco visited kids in grades K-8 at the inner-city school, stressing the importance of reading to the students. He also donated books to the school and students.
  • Indians Youth Baseball Camp: Carrasco has visited summer camps a few occasions to teach children the game’s fundamentals.
  • Oberlin College students: Met with Spanish-as-a-second-language students from the school to detail his challenges in speaking his native tongue in a new country.

Fans can visit to help vote Carrasco as the 2015 Roberto Clemente recipient. Voting ends Friday, October 9.

Photo Gallery: Tribe wins on 5th walk-off of 2014

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Indians notched their 5th walk-off win of the season, as Asdrubal Cabrera connected for a game-winning 3-run shot off Boston’s Edward Mujica with one out in the bottom of the 12th.

The win marked the Tribe’s second walk-off win of the homestand (Sunday, 6-4 win vs. COL); three of the five Cleveland walk-off victories this season have come by way of the long ball, as Michael Brantley (5/19 vs. DET) and Michael Bourn (6/1 vs. COL) have also notched game-winning long balls.

The game also marked just the second time in the history of Progressive Field (1994-present) that the Indians have collected a walk-off home run vs. the Red Sox in the regular season: Manny Ramirez owned the club’s only previous regular season walk-off homer vs. Boston on June 19, 1995, a solo-shot in the bottom of the 10th off  Ken Ryan…Tony Pena hit a walk-off solo homer off Zane Smith in the bottom of the 13th in Game 1 of the 1995 Division Series vs. Boston – the club’s only other walk-off homer against the Red Sox at Progressive Field.

The game-winner marks the 73rd walk-off home run in the history of Progressive Field – the most by any team over that span ahead of Cincinnati (60) and Oakland (57).

Tuesday recap: Photos, plus 6 things you need to know from win over BoSox

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


  • The Indians jumped out to an early 3-0 lead and rallied for a pair of runs in the 7th to cap a 5-3 victory and seal their season-high 5th straight victory…Tribe’s last winning streak longer than 4 games occurred when the club finished the 2013 regular season with 10 consecutive victories.
  • Over the course of the win streak (all on current homestand), Cleveland’s starting rotation has posted a 2.27 ERA (8 ER/31.2 IP), picking up 2 of the 5 victories, while the bullpen has combined to go 3-0 with 15 strikeouts against just 3 walks.
  • Cleveland continues to build upon the best home record in the American League, as the Tribe has now gone 20-11 (.645), winning 8 straight and 10 of the club’s last 13 games overall here at Progressive Field…entering today’s game, Cleveland’s 19-11 home record also stood as the 5th-best in the Majors…the Tribe’s 8 game home win streak is the longest since reeling off 11 straight from July 11-August 1, 2013.


  • Pitched a perfect 9th inning for his 5th save of the season – has earned the save in each of his last 4 appearances……seven of his last eight outings have been scoreless (8.2 IP, 4-for-28 [.143]) to lower his season ERA from 3.71 to 2.81.


  • Chisenhall is batting just above .360 (.361, 35-97) with 9 doubles, 3 homers, 17 RBI and 16 runs scored over his last 29 games.


  • Unlocked a 3-3 tied with a game-winning 2-run double of Boston lefty Andrew Miller in the bottom of the 7th…Bourn finished 2-4 with a run scored and has now hit safely in 7-straight games (tied w/Murphy for longest active streak)…Bourn had a 9-game hit snapped on May 26 at Chicago-AL, but has hit safely in 16 of his last 17 games dating back to May 17 (26-71, .366, 2 HR, 2 3B, 4 2B, 7 RBI and 13 RS).
