Indians out to extend dominance over Tigers

The Cleveland Indians are inching closer to the penthouse in the American League Central in part by dominating the team that resides in the division's cellar.

The Indians have won eight straight meetings with the Detroit Tigers and nine of 10 in the season series heading into Tuesday's second contest of a four-game set in Cleveland.

While the Indians have won 13 of their past 18 contests overall to move within six games of the first-place Minnesota Twins, rookie Oscar Mercado had been mired in a 1-for-25 stretch before Cleveland's 8-6 win over Detroit on Monday.
