The Indians came back in a downpour past night and knocked around the White Sox bullpen (no shock there) to win 6-2. Carmona picked up his 16th win.
The Indians Magic Number to win the AL Central is now 13. Any combination of Indians wins and Tigers losses that add up to 13 gets us in. There are 18 games to play for each team.
The Tigers play a DH today against Texas at 105 and 705. Paul Byrd(14-6, 4.34 ERA) takes the hill tonight for Cleveland against Chicago's John Danks (6-13, 5.41 ERA).
Meanwhile, in the other race in the American League, Boston lost last night, and the Indians now trail the Red Sox by 1.5 games for best record in the American League. I don't expect to secure that spot, but home field throughout the playoffs would be nice.......
