Red-hot Indians eye division title possibility vs. Pirates

The Cleveland Indians have been enjoying walk-off wins with great frequency of late, while the Pittsburgh Pirates have been stumbling over themselves for much of the season.

The surging Indians (34-24) look to remain in hot pursuit of the American League Central title on Saturday when they continue their three-game series versus the visiting Pirates (18-40).

"That's what we want. We want to win the division," right-hander Carlos Carrasco said after Cleveland matched a season high with its sixth straight win in the series opener on Friday. The dramatic 4-3 victory also served as the red-hot Indians' third walk-off win in their last four games.
