Notes From the Wigwam: Indians fall in divisional race
The Indians have been a streaky team all season, but they unfortunately chose the wrong time to go on a losing streak as a 1-6 week left them seven games behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. In addition to the numerous losses, the week was magnified by the loss of right-hander Corey Kluber to the disabled list. Yep, it was unfortunately one of those weeks for the Indians that we all would like to soon forget. Before moving forward though, let's take one last look at the week that was and join the IBI's Steve Orbanek for his weekly notebook, Notes From the Wigwam.

Second Thoughts Game #118: Indians 6, Angels 5
Having lost six straight games and severely jeopardizing their playoff chances, the Indians desperately needed a win before embarking on their longest stretch of games away from Cleveland left. They turned to their best pitcher to halt the slide, but he struggled and things looked daunting late in the game until the offense exploded and the bullpen did their job to notch a very important 6-5 win in the series and homestand finale. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts....

Pestano working on getting more extension in Columbus
After a shaky start to the season the Indians and Vinnie Pestano are relying on a trip to Triple-A Columbus to bring him back to his former glory as a key member in the Bullpen Mafia. A stint on the disabled list in May and a disappointing July made Pestano the odd man out in a recent bullpen shuffle, and the IBI's Adrienne Robbins recently talked to him to get the low down on what he is working on in Columbus.
