The progress the Cleveland Indians made on a six-game winning streak has been diminished with consecutive losses, and while it might seem they’ve got the right guy on the mound against spiraling Detroit, the heart of the Tigers lineup has hit Corey Kluber extremely well. Cleveland (64-68) dropped the last two of a three-game set in Toronto, and Wednesday’s 5-1 defeat dropped it six games back of Texas for the second wild card after getting within four on Monday. The lineup went quiet with four hits, but the bullpen is keeping the Indians in games with a 1.19 ERA in 22 2-3 innings over the last seven.

One of the worst stretches of Joe Kelly’s career spurred a demotion to the minor leagues.

Kelly (8-6, 4.94) has finally found himself at the tail end of his first season in Boston, posting a 1.69 ERA over his last five starts.

Now that the Los Angeles Angels have put a miserable August behind them, Matt Shoemaker believes they’re ready to make a postseason push. Shoemaker gave up five hits and one run over seven mostly crisp innings and the Angels backed him with a rare offensive outburst in a 6-2 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night. ”This team can be so good if we get on a roll,” said Shoemaker, who struck out five, walked two and allowed only two runners past first base.

Oakland’s O.Co Coliseum is often a disappointment, and not just because Billy Beane’s torn-down Oakland Athletics have the worst record in the American League this season. No, the Coliseum is generally just a mess. It’s outdated, broken down and prone to embarrassing flooding . Plus, the A’s have to share space with an NFL team, which makes for a funky bedfellow. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] That was on display Monday night, as the Athletics’ game against the Los Angeles Angels was delayed when part of the outfield wall came loose. Shane Victorino crashed into the left-field fence while tracking a fly ball and part of it came unhinged.  That’s like Single-A shenanigans.  As you can see, it was a portion of the State Farm advertisement. The game was delayed 10 minutes and both teams left the field while the wall was fixed. (Unfortunately, not by Jake and his khakis ).

In less than a month with Oakland, Danny Valencia has learned plenty about his ballpark’s quirks. Valencia hit a two-run double in the third inning and another RBI-double in the fifth to back Felix Doubront in his first win for Oakland, and the Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 11-5 on Monday night. The game was delayed for a fix of the wall after Shane Victorino ran into it on Valencia’s second double.

Torii Hunter, Minnesota’s 40-year-old right fielder in his 17th full major league season, was at the plate last week with the bases loaded. Miguel Sano, the rookie slugger, was shouting more than simple encouragement from the dugout. ”Make him come to you! Make him come to you!” Sano bellowed, cautioning Hunter against chasing a pitch outside the strike zone.

For the New York Mets, August has been like a dream, and nothing sums up their charmed life better than the saga of Wilmer Flores. On July 29, reports surfaced that Flores was being traded in a deal that would bring Carlos Gomez to the Mets. An emotional Flores wiped tears from his eyes on the field, but the trade was never completed.
