Reds, Indians ready for season finale of 'Battle of Ohio'

CLEVELAND -- It's called "The Battle of Ohio" and there is actually a trophy awarded to the winner each year. Thursday night, the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds will meet for the fourth and final time in 2017.

The Reds have won two of the first three games of the series, meaning the best the Indians can do is split this year's series, with a win Thursday night.

That may not be easy, however, because the Indians are playing at home, where they inexplicably have struggled. The Indians have lost three games in a row, and five of their last seven at Progressive Field. The Indians' home record of 8-11 is the worst in the American League.
