Finale loss and slide continues |

From Mandy Bell:

This past Monday, the Indians were in a more comfortable position, sharing the lead in the American League Central with the White Sox and tied for the No. 2 seed in the postseason standings. Just six days later, the Tribe is now tied with the Yankees for the final two American League Wild Card spots (the Nos. 7 and 8 seeds) after going 0-6 in that span.

“Every team struggles,” Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor said on Friday. “It’s a question of, are you gonna struggle five games, 10 games, 15 games or 100 games? … We don’t have that many games to be struggling.”

Indians still in line for postseason despite 6-game skid |

Cleveland currently holds the 8th seed and has a 4.5 game lead on the 9th place Mariners.
