The Cleveland Indians are looking to match their longest winning streak from last season, and facing the slumping Chicago White Sox may be enough.
The Indians look to capitalize on another meeting with the White Sox as they try for a fourth straight victory Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.
Cleveland (8-10) went 68-94 last year, finishing ahead of only Minnesota (66-96) in the AL. A four-game winning streak was all the Indians could manage as a season high, and they reached that mark three times, most recently from June 18-22.
They have a chance to equal that streak following a five-game slide.
Asdrubal Cabrera came through in the clutch in Monday's opener, connecting for a two-out, two-run single in the eighth to provide the difference in a 3-2 win, the Indians third in four meetings with Chicago this season.
"I love those situations," said Cabrera, who sat out Sunday's 5-4 win over Houston after hurting his left wrist falling down the stairs of the dugout Saturday.
