MLB Game Recap: Pittsburgh Pirates (8) vs. Cleveland Indians (0) - Date: 9/26/2020 Indians' playoff positioning hurt by 8-0 loss to PiratesCLEVELAND The Indians will have one eye on the field and one eye on the scoreboard on the final day of the regular season.Cleveland suffered a setback in its bid to host a first-round playoff series and had its six-game winning streak snapped with an 8-0 loss to Joe Musgrove and the major league-worst Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday night.The Indians fell one game behind the Chicago White Sox for second place in the AL Central and were eliminated from the division title race when Minnesota beat Cincinnati.In order to earn home-field advantage for the best-of-three wild-card round, Cleveland must beat the Pirates and have the White Sox lose to the Cubs on Sunday. Winning Sports Handicappers. The Indians hold the tiebreaker over the White Sox. Any other outcome sends Cleveland on the road.''Who knows if we have to leave or stay at home?'' acting manager Sandy Alomar Jr. said. ''Wake me up when you know because we'll be in a hotel either way. Our (travel director) has the toughest job on the team. We're just trying to focus on winning the game.'' Pittsburgh rocked right-hander Aaron Civale (4-6) for a career-high eight runs in four innings. Rookie Ke'Bryan Hayes had five hits and Colin Moran had a three-run homer and four RBIs.Bryan Reynolds and Jose Osuna also homered as the Pirates won for the third time in 19 interleague games. Hayes scored three runs, doubled three times and had two singles, and is batting .370 (30 for 81) since making his major league debut on Sept. 1.''This was not the way anyone wants to end the season,'' Civale said. ''Honestly, I'm not too sure what happened. Free Picks Against the Spread. Tonight definitely is going to sting.'' Musgrove (1-5) earned his first victory in exactly one year, allowing three hits while striking out 10 in a season-high seven innings. Top Rated Sports Handicappers. The right-hander did not allow a run in his final two outings, striking out 21 over 13 frames.The Indians were shut out for the fifth time and did not push a runner past second base. Nick Tropeano and Dovydas Neverauskas finished off the five-hitter.''When your offense puts up runs like they did tonight, it takes a lot of pressure off and allows you to go into attack mode,'' Musgrove said.MVP candidate Jose Ramirez went 1 for 4 for Cleveland, which had three walk-off victories in the previous four days. He has six homers and 18 RBIs in the last 11 games, raising his average to .288.The 23-year-old Hayes became the 12th Pirates rookie to have five hits in five plate appearances in a game, joining franchise legends Roberto Clemente, Dick Groat and Paul Waner.''I was thinking, I hadn't had five hits in a game since the first week or two of low A-ball,'' he said. ''This is really special for me.'' UP IN THE AIRThe Indians will start Shane Bieber, Carlos Carrasco and Zach Plesac in their initial playoff series, but Alomar said they haven't decided on their first long reliever, if one is needed.Rookie Triston McKenzie and Civale are the primary candidates.''We would have to look at the matchups and see who the best pitcher is in that situation,'' Alomar said.DO-OVERDerek Shelton was hired as the Pirates' manager on Nov. 27, 2019, but hasn't spent much time exploring the city because of the coronavirus pandemic.''I'm excited to actually see Pittsburgh next year,'' he said. ''Except for my apartment and the Walmart, I haven't really been anywhere around town.'' Shelton spent the previous 15 seasons as a coach, all with AL teams.UP NEXTPirates: RHP J. T. Brubaker (1-3, 4.46 ERA) makes his second start against Cleveland this season on Sunday. He gave up three runs in three innings on Aug. 18, but didn't factor in the decision.Indians: RHP Cal Quantrill (2-0, 2.17 ERA), a converted starter, will open a bullpen game to wrap up the regular season. RHP Adam Plutko is slated to work as a bulk reliever behind him.---More MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/-Sports
