Worth noting

• Michael Brantley, who carries a 12-game hitting streak into Sunday's finale against the Blue Jays, has hit safely in five straight at-bats against lefties.

Brantley is the first left-handed Indians batter to get hits in five consecutive at-bats against southpaws since Shin-Soo Choo did it in July 2009. The 25-year-old Brantley is hitting .303 against left-handers this season.
