Quote to note

"It absolutely feels like last year. We've just been playing better, cleaner baseball. Our pitchers are going after the strike zone. Our defense is playing better. We're not making two or three errors a game where it's costing us runs."
-- Indians utility man Mike Aviles, on the Tribe's recent hot streak
