The Cleveland Indians had a rough week and have fallen even farther behind in the 2012 MLB standings. The Tribe has lost nine of their past ten games following a home series loss to the New York Yankees over the weekend.
The Chicago White Sox are leading the AL Central, 16.5 games ahead of the Indians. Cleveland is in fourth place, and is also 14.5 games behind in the race for the final Wild Card spot. There are two Wild Card teams this year, and those two will play a one-game playoff before the division series starts.
The Indians begin a series with the Wild Card-leading Oakland Athletics on Monday at Progressive Field.
