The Indians have certainly carried over the momentum from their 3-4 road trip. While that was not the biggest success when it came to record, they faced 2 first place teams and were competitive on the road. It was crucial for them to carry the momentum into the Detroit series and they did. They won 2 out of 3 against Detroit, which put them 5-5 in a 10 game stretch where they faced the 3 division leaders in the AL. Not only that, but the 5 games were all competitive and they had a run differential of +10 which is quite good for a 10 game period.
