RECENT TRENDS
NEWS

Covers Preview - The Cleveland Indians technically are still alive in the American League wild-card race but are going to need some help over the last 11 games. The Indians will try to take care of their own business by earning a series win when they visit the Houston Astros for the finale of their four-game set on Thursday. Cleveland had its losing streak reach four games with a setback in the series opener but bounced back in the last two behind extraordinary starting pitching.
