Cleveland wins its tenth straight game to finish the regular season with a 92-70 record in a 5-1 victory in Minnesota over the Twins. The Indians clinch the first American League Wild Card spot, earning the right to host the winner of a play-in game in Texas between the Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Ubaldo Jimenez finishes September with a 4-0 record in six starts with a 1.09 ERA. A two-run home run in the first by Nick Swisher provides all the runs the Indians will need on the afternoon. They tack on three more runs in the sixth and seventh innings.
