• Indians Still In Playoff Hunt Down the Stretch

    August 05, 2010 No comments

    The Indianapolis Indians got a rare day off yesterday as they get ready for a four game series
    against the team with the best record in the International League, the Durham Bulls. After the
    Tribe finishes the series in Durham, they return home to Victory Field Monday to kick off an
    eight game home stand against Norfolk and Syracuse.

    Indianapolis is in third place in the International League West division with a record of 57-55.
    That puts the Tribe ten games behind division leading Columbus and three and a half games
    behind second place Louisville. While a division crown seems less and less likely, the Indians
    are still very much in the playoff hunt for a wild-card berth.

    The Tribe are currently in second place in the wild-card standings three and a half games
    behind division rival Louisville and tied with Buffalo. Indianapolis and Louisville will hook up ten
    more times this season including the last five games of the season in September. Indianapolis
    will start that five game series with three games at Victory Field before closing out the regular
    season with two games at Louisville Slugger Field. The Indians also have five more games with
    the division leading Columbus Clippers.

    The Tribe and Bulls begin their four game series tonight at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park with
    a first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m. RHP Brad Lincoln is the anticipated starter for the Tribe,
    while RHP Richard De Los Santos is the probable starter for the Bulls.
