Cleveland had Friday night's game shortened by two innings as heavy downpour in the middle of the 7th - a one hour and nine-minute rain delay -- washed away the final two innings.

That was Cleveland's first rain-shortened game here in Cleveland since Sept. 19, 2011 vs. Seattle (L, 6-12 in 7.0 IP), and the 10th overall in the history of Progressive Field.

With Friday night's win, the Indians are now 5-5 in those games.

The Indians have now won 7 of 9 and 10 of their last 15 games overall -- at 84-70 the Indians are now 14 games above the .500 mark for the first time since May 24, 2011 (30-16).
