CLEVELAND — Don’t look now, but the Cleveland Indians are rolling through the month of September.

The Indians won their fourth straight game on Saturday night, beating the New York Mets, 9-4.

Nick Swisher had another big game for the Indians, doubling in the first to give Cleveland a 1-0 lead, part of a five-run 1st inning for the Tribe.

Then, in the 5th inning, Swisher homered to left, his 17th of the season. Swisher has now homered on back-to-back days for the first time since May 8 and May 9 against Oakland.

Swisher had 6 RBIs through the first two games of the series, this after going nine straight games without an RBI.

Asdrubal Cabrera ended a 0-19 slump by hitting his 10th home run of the season in the 7th inning to give the Indians a lead they would never relinquish at 9-4.

Cory Kluber was activated off the disabled list before Saturday’s game after soreness in his right middle finger. Kluber started for the Indians, going 5 innings. He gave up 5 hits and struck out 5 batters. Kluber is now 3-0 with a 2.37 ERA (5 ER/10.0 IP) in his first 3 career interleague starts.

The Indians will go for the sweep against the Mets on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. The Mets carried a 7-2 all-time record against the Tribe into this series, but with back-to-back losses have dropped their first series to Cleveland in franchise history.
