Indians eyeing playoff positioning as they face Pirates

The Cleveland Indians likely will be pulling double duty on Friday.

No, the Indians (33-24) don't have a doubleheader on tap. Rather, they will set their sights on the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates for their final series of the regular season while also casting an eye on the out-of-town scoreboard.

After all, Cleveland's four-game sweep of the White Sox moved it within one game of second-place Chicago and two in back of American League Central-leading Minnesota with three to play.
