I remember way back in April when I wrote that I thought the Indians would clinch the division. I really felt this was their year. They’ve just got a special team and a ton of character and it seems to be someone different every single night for this team. Now there will be a playoff series in Cleveland for the first time since I was a freshman in college. 10 years after their most recent World Series run, October postseason baseball returns to Jacobs Field. It’s been a long journey and 92 wins later the Cleveland Indians are the Central Division Champions. There will be full playoff coverage here at Diamond Hoggers of every postseason ballgame. Who knows, maybe I’ll even score tickets to a game.
The Indians were led by their star Grady Sizemore, who has played in every ballgame this season. Sizemore had 4 hits on the day in 4 at bats, 2 RBI and a triple.
