Indians rising up the power rankings (1:43)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Good series this weekend between the Blue Jays and Indians with all thee games decided by one run. The Indians took the series on Sunday as Jose Ramirez's two-run homer off Brett Cecil in the eighth won it. Cecil dropped to 1-7 and the Jays fell to 14-22 in one-run games. Their bullpen has been better but the setup guys remain a potential issue down the stretch.
