The Indians Are One Win Away From World Series Berth

The Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 last night to move within one win of a World Series berth.

The Cleveland Indians face the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League Championship Series beginning Friday. Both teams were considered underdogs who then swept their respective division series.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the Blue Jays had to win a one-game Wild Card to even make it into the playoffs. 

The Indians are considered heavy underdogs in their first playoff series since 2007. The Tribe faces the Boston Red Sox at Progressive Field tomorrow to begin the American League Division Series. And these two teams have a lot of history. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says, at least on paper, the Indians are at a real disadvantage, especially with all their injuries. 

  Cleveland’s magical year in sports rolls on, with the Indians celebrating their first American League Central title in nearly a decade. They clinched a postseason berth by beating rival Detroit on Monday. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says clinching the division on the Tiger’s home field made a statement. 

The Indians are inching toward their first American League Central title since 2007, but they’re limping to the finish line. Following a dramatic walk-off win last night, the Indians lead Detroit by seven games in the division with less than two weeks to go in the season. But, some sportswriters have already written off their chances in the postseason following injuries to several key players.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says just when we thought the Cleveland sports curse ended when the Cavs won the title in June, it feels like it’s back:

The Indians are turning Cleveland fans into scoreboard watchers with about one month to go in the regular season. The team has been holding onto first place in the American League Central, but two teams in the division are starting to close in. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto talks about entering the part of the season where every game matters.
