The Cleveland Indians once again have company at the top of the AL Central. They’ll turn to their ace to try and avoid losing any more ground.
C.C. Sabathia tries to prevent the Indians from falling out of first place for the first time in nearly four weeks when he takes the mound in Wednesday’s series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Cleveland (41-29) won Monday’s series opener 10-1, but the Phillies (37-34) evened the three-game set with a 9-6 victory on Tuesday.
The Indians have lost six of their last 10 games to fall into a first-place tie with Detroit in the AL Central. They have not been out of the top spot since May 24, when they trailed the Tigers by one-half game.
