The Indians finally pulled into the coveted second wild card spot Saturday night, and Sunday they played like they had no plans on going backwards as they routed the Houston Astros by a final of 9-2. The Tribe are now winners of four in a row after sweeping the Astros in their series.
Corey Kluber started off rough but managed to keep the damage to a minimum pitching 5.1 innings with 6 strikeouts and two earned runs. Kluber received his tenth win of the season.
Carlos Santana had a great game with two RBI off a double and a solo home run in the eighth inning to right field. The long bomb was Sanatana's 19th of the season.
The Tribe will have the day off Monday before they play their final two regular season games at Progressive Field against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday and Wednesday.
