The regular season is finally upon us, and tonight starts the final slate as the Indians travel to take on the Royals after winning two of three against the White Sox.
The playoffs for the Indians have been set for awhile, but the team is trying to set for the postseason, looking to be sharp for their first game in Houston against the Astros a week from Friday.
Before that, they have four more games left, and the team needs one more win to reach 90 wins, which is less than they had a year ago, but the team health wise and mentally look to be in a better place than they were a season ago when they were fried from going through a 22-game win streak.
