The Texas Rangers are spoiling the party the Indians have been having at Progressive Field, winning the first three games of a four game series in impressive fashion. Let’s see if the Indians can salvage a game from this series today with Mitch Talbot on the mound.

The Indians clearly miss Travis Hafner, but the pitching has also taken its lumps over the past 10 days. The Tribe still has the best record in the American League, but the Detroit Tigers are now just 3.5 games back. We now have the beginnings of a real race for the Central Division title.
