3. Dominating the Central
The Indians play their final AL Central game on Thursday, and it’s been a feast this season against their inter-divisional foes.
This season the team is 45-23 (.662) overall against the AL Central, marking the 2nd-best intradivisional record in MLB (Boston – 48-21, .696)…Cleveland’s 2.81 ERA (190ER/609.0IP) vs. the Central is the lowest by a club against its own division.
They have really beaten up the Sox, going 12-3 overall against them after the win on Wednesday, and they have outscored them on the season 82 to 38, an average of 5.4 to 2.5 runs per game.
After the Sox leave town, another set of Sox come in as Boston invades Progressive Field over the weekend.
