The Cleveland Indians should do nothing but focus on the game at hand and not worry about what other teams are doing. Unlike those suckers, we're sitting at home on our couches and can scoreboard watch all we want to.

The Tribe gained a game last night with their huge win over the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros continuing to remember that they are the Houston Astros, but they still need some help if they want a shot at a one-game playoff with the New York Yankees.

Here are the important games to keep an eye on, which I'll try to keep updated throughout the night. If only I could provide beer and a toilet you'd never have to leave this Game Thread!

Angels @ Twins (Go Twins! Win now before the Indians play you seven times)
Game 1: LAA 4, MIN 3 (F)
Game 2: LAA 0, MIN 0

A's @ Astros (Go A's!)
OAK 3, HOU 3

As for the Indians, it will be up to Carlos Carrasco to out pitch his arch-Carlos nemesis, Carlos Rodon. The Tribe offense rolled last night, but can they finally do it for two nights in a row? Another grand slam or two certainly would not hurt.
