The Indians led the AL Central by one game when they headed out on a nine-game road trip through three National League cities, and they will come home having lost only a half-game off that lead, and still in first place, when they take on the Yankees at Progressive Field on Monday.â†µ
After being swept in San Francisco, the Tribe took two-of-three in both Arizona and Cincinnati, to end up 4-5 on the trip.â†µ
A success? Not exactly, but it could have been much worse,â†µ
And admit it, most of us (and I most definitely include myself in this) had a vision of the Tribe sitting about three games back after this trip, especially after the way it started.â†µ
So…the gauntlet is over, and although a bit shaky at times, the Indians have survived it.â†µ
Now it's back to American League baseball for The Good Guys — at least until the World Series.
