Every time it looks like their season might be over, the Indians go and make it interesting again. Winners of seven out of their last ten and coming off an impressive victory again the rival White Sox, the Tribe sits just five games back of the Rangers in the race for the second Wild Card spot. The better news, though, is that arguably their best starter returns from the DL tonight. That's right, Cookie Carrasco is back and ready for action. He'll face the young gun Carlos Rodon as he takes the mound for the 4th place Southsiders. And for some reason, the Indians will try to do it without Francisco Lindor. But hey, LGAviles!
