The Cleveland Indians have been the hottest team in baseball over the last month.
Having won 10 of its last 13 games and sporting a league-best 19-7 record since July 31, Cleveland looks to continue its surge as it opens a three-game homestand with the Detroit Tigers.
The Indians have moved a game behind the Yankees in the AL wild card race.
“We’ve put ourselves in a good position going into this last month now. We just have to keep going,” Boone said. “This was a good road trip for us.”
“We definitely have to improve at home,” Blake said. “We have the same approach. It’s just the way it has gone this year.”
After snapping its three-game losing streak with a 12-8 victory over the defending champion Boston Red Sox on Saturday, Detroit dropped the finale 11-3 on Sunday.
Losers of four of its last six, Detroit visits Jacobs Field as the second stop of its 10-game road trip. The Tigers will begin a four-game set with the White Sox on Thursday.
