Carlos Carrasco has been on a roll since being moved back into the rotation, and if he can keep that going the Indians might pick complete their first sweep since the first series in August. (They're three outs from completing a sweep of the Royals, but they'll have to wait a couple weeks for that opportunity) The series against Detroit was a major disappointment, but a win today and a successful completion of that game against KC would give the Indians a 7-3 record in that 10-game stretch, which any reasonable fan would have taken.

We'll see if the Tribe is up to the task.
