The Cleveland Indians begin a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Monday.
The Cleveland Indians are out of the playoff picture, but they can still impact the AL Central race when they face the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. The White Sox are battling with Detroit for the division, and the Indians can put a major dent in their chances with a good series.

They'll need to improve their effort in order to beat the White Sox, though -- they haven't won a series since taking two of three from Detroit between Sept. 3 and Sept. 5.
Monday's Game Time: 8:10 p.m. ET
