The Cleveland Guardians now have a little bit of a cushion between themselves and the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central.
After their win yesterday and the White Sox loss, Cleveland is now ahead of the South Siders by a full four games in the division.
The Guardians have won six in a row.
This next week will go a long way in deciding who will win the AL Central.
The Guardians will be playing a makeup game today against the White Sox with a chance to increase their lead to five games.
Then the slumping Minnesota Twins, who sit five back of first, will come into town for a five-game set.
After that, it’s three games on the road against the White Sox.
The Guardians are four games ahead of the White Sox.
The White Sox come to Cleveland tomorrow for a makeup game.
Then a five-game series against the third-place Twins over the weekend.
Then three games against the White Sox in Chicago next week.

Guardians Begin Pivotal Stretch
It’s make or break time.
Buckle up, Guardians fans.
This is a huge stretch of games that will go a long way in determining who comes out on top in the AL Central.
The Guardians have a chance to bury both the White Sox and the Twins.
It’s also a good chance for both of these teams to try and find a way back into the race and cling to their postseason hopes.
With the Guardians up four games, it’s looking like now is the time for them to officially run away with it.
But the Twins and the White Sox will certainly bring their best to the table.
It’ll be a tough stretch, but each game represents a chance for the Guardians to put away their opponents and secure their first AL Central title since 2018.
It’s going to be fun this coming week.
We’ll see how things shake out.
