CLEVELAND -- General manager Chris Antonetti expressed support for Indians manager Manny Acta and his coaching staff following the least successful trip in the franchise's 112-year history.
Cleveland went 0-9 at Minnesota, Kansas City and Detroit, ending the trip with a 10-8 loss to the Tigers on Sunday when All-Star closer Chris Perez gave up five runs with two outs in the 10th inning.
Cleveland trailed Chicago by 3½ games when the trip began and went into Monday 9½ games behind the AL Central-leading White Sox.
