MLB Standings: Indians Move Out Of AL Central Basement

The Indians moved out of the AL Central cellar with their win on Sunday.

The Cleveland Indians have won just three of their last 10 games, but their win on Sunday was enough to move them ahead of the Minnesota Twins and out of the American League Central basement.

The Indians are 61-86 on the season, although they have been better during the month of September after a dismal August. Cleveland is 6-9 during September after going just 5-24 during August. The schedule hasn't been kind to the Indians recently with 19 of their last 23 games against teams in playoff contention.

Cleveland currently has the fifth worst record in the Major Leagues, including the second worst record in the AL. Only the Twins have a worse record than Cleveland in the AL and the Indians only lead Minnesota by one game. The Twins and Indians begin a three-game series on Tuesday. That series could go a long way in determining draft position next year.
