Tribe Daily: Indians split two-game series with Nationals / CIC Celebrity Golf Classic today at Quail Hollow

The Indians couldn't solve Stephen Strasburg in a 4-1 loss to the Nats on Wednesday in front of 26,607 at Progressive Field. The Indians AL Central lead is at 4.5 games; the last time the Tribe's lead was under five games was 33 days ago.

Strasburg helped the Nationals carry a 4-0 lead into the ninth, but the Tribe made it interesting in the ninth as Erik Gonzalez walked and Rajai Davis and Tyler Naquin singled to cut it to 4-1. But Blake Treinen induced a double play to end it.

AL Central standings
Indians: 57-42 (--)
Tigers: 54-48 (4.5)
CWS: 50-51 (8.0
Royals: 49-51 (8.5
