First place in the American League Central will be on the line tonight at Progressive Field after the Indians beat the Royals for a second straight night, 6-1, on Friday. The win marked the Tribe’s third straight victory.

Danny Salazar continued his All-Star-caliber 2016 season, striking out nine in eight innings. He’s 6-3, and he dropped his ERA to 2.24; he has a 10.67 K/9 IP rate.

Yan Gomes hit a solo homer in the second, while the Tribe scored three in the third: Jason Kipnis doubled and scored on Francisco Lindor’s RBI single; Mike Napoli doubled home Lindor; and Napoli eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Tyler Naquin hit a solo homer in the seventh – his first career big-league homer. Jose Ramirez later doubled, stole third and scored on an error for the game’s final run.

We took the finale against the Texas Rangers in dramatic fashion last night with a walk-off RBI single after 11 innings.

A game of catch up, the Rangers tied it up in the top of the 9th, to send us into extra innings, but Lonnie Chisenhall opened the 11th with a double, and was later brought home on a chopper up the middle by Yan Gomes.

It was our first walk-off win since August 11.

We called it Slider’s Spring Training, a quartet of videos documenting his work in Goodyear.

First, it was a helping hand to Joba:

Then, he helped Jose Ramirez with a problem he’d been having:

Of course, he got a little too comfortable in the clubhouse after his Body Issue debut:

Finally, he got busted after a little accident with Terry’s scooter.

As Tribe Fest is coming up on Saturday, all of the Indians players are flocking back to Cleveland from their off-season sites in preparation for the big event.

So, with most of them here – Michael Brantley, Corey Kluber, Jason Kipnis and Yan Gomes decided to get the guys together for a player-orchestrated mini-camp at The Force in Westlake, Ohio.
