CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians continued their roll to October baseball with a four-game sweep over the Houston Astros Sunday.

With a 3-2 lead heading into the 6th inning, the Tribe exploded in front of the crowd at Progressive Field.

Michael Brantley singled to center to score Asdrubal Cabrera. The Tribe continued to build the lead with a Michael Bourn triple to deep right to score both Yan Gomes and Brantley. Nick Swisher added a sacrifice fly to center to score Bourn for the 7-2 lead.

The Indians added another run in the 7th off a RBI and one more in the 9th for good measure when Carlos Santana homered to right field.

The Tribe took the 9-2 win over the Astros in front of a crowd of 26,000, the largest Sunday home crowd of the season.

The team gets the day off Monday before taking on the Chicago White Sox Tuesday at home.
