Second Thoughts Game #111: Rangers 3, Indians 4
Is it because of the calming influence of Terry Francona and the other leaders in the clubhouse? Is it because the race for the final AL wild card spot is full of flawed teams?

Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he discusses the highlights of Sunday's walk-off win.

Second Thoughts Game #110: Texas 0, Cleveland 2
On a night where Jim Thome was immortalized in bronze, the Cleveland and Texas bats participated in an evening of silence, as the Cleveland Indians found their way back to .500, defeating the Rangers, 2-0.

Kluber hurls complete game shutout; Indians blank Seattle, 2-0
