Indians seek 15th straight win over Tigers

The Indians have manhandled the Detroit Tigers this season, a trend Cleveland would like to see continue if it hopes to punch its ticket to the postseason in two weeks.

The Indians (87-63) aim to topple the Tigers (45-104) for the 15th straight time and 16th in 17 meetings this season on Tuesday when the American League Central rivals open a three-game series in Cleveland.

While the Indians' bid for a fourth consecutive division title took a hit after they dropped two of three to the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins over the weekend, Cleveland manager Terry Francona wants to see his charges put their best foot forward in their last dozen games.
