The Indians' playoff chances are on life support. If they can win tonight and tomorrow night, they'll be back on firmer ground, but if they only split those two, they'll be hanging by their fingernails, and if they lose them both, they'll be finished.

Danny Salazar is tasked with ending the slide, and given the way the Tribe lineup has been scoring runs, he'll probably need to be pretty sharp.
