Alomar, Indians riding high into White Sox finale

Sandy Alomar Jr. has guided the Cleveland Indians to a 24-18 record this season while serving as acting manager in place of Terry Francona, who has persevered through a spate of health issues but appears on track to join the club for the playoffs.

It still remains possible for Francona to reunite with the Indians in the American League postseason bubble with Cleveland in the field as AL Central champs.

While the Indians enter Thursday's series finale against the slumping Chicago White Sox in third place in the division, their three straight wins against visiting Chicago have pulled Cleveland to within 2 games of the suddenly second-place White Sox. Meanwhile, Cleveland is just 2 1/2 games behind the Central-leading Minnesota Twins, who leapfrogged the White Sox on Wednesday after Chicago lost for the fourth straight game and fifth time in six games.
