Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Radio: WTAM

After pulling off the series on Thursday, the Indians maintain a 6-game lead heading into the weekend. Both the Indians and Tigers will be facing off against AL East teams who are also fighting for a playoff spot; the Tigers have three more games against the Red Sox, while the Indians will face the Blue Jays.

The Jays have lost a couple of their key offensive weapons in recent weeks (Jose Bautista is on the DL again, Josh Donaldson has been out the last couple of days), but they enter tonight's game in first place, 1.5 games ahead of the Orioles.
