The Indians bullpen shined in Game two, as five relievers combined to limit the Rangers to one run on four hits with no walks and nine strikeouts..

Cleveland hung on for a 2-0 win in game one and a 5-1 win in game two.

On Thursday, The Tribe continued their winning streak with a 7-5 victory over the Twins as they hit the road. Cleveland will play three in Minneapolis before heading home to face Boston.

Mike Clevinger picked up the win after seven innings on the mound for the Indians, striking out nine. Ramirez had three RBIs on two hits to lead Cleveland at the plate.
