The red hot Minnesota Twins look for another win at the expense of the Cleveland Indians.
The Minnesota Twins have been scoring a lot of runs meaning their pitching has just needed to avoid meltdowns. That goal was accomplished in Saturday’s 7-4 victory at Progressive Field with starter Phil Hughes doing just enough to keep the Tribe at bay. Hughes gave up all four runs on ten hits over 6.1 frames with three relievers putting up zeros. The Twins racked up 16 hits and walked twice with Eduardo Escobar leading the way with a 3-5 day with a pair of RBI’s while Brian Dozier and Torii Hunter slammed solo homers while combining for five hits and five runs.Trevor May heads to the hill to face the Indians for the second time in 2015. May absorbed the loss in a 2-1 defeat to Oakland with both runs allowed on five hits and a pair of BB in 5.2 frames.

The Cleveland Indians have nothing going their way and that is definitely not a good thing with Kansas City and Detroit pulling further away. That trend continued with neither the arms or bats getting the job done Saturday. Journeyman left hander Bruce Chen was not the answer with six runs plated on ten hits through four frames to drop his first outing of the season. Five relievers held Minnesota off the board but the damage was done. The Indians racked up 13 hits and a pair of free passes with David Murphy smacking a pinch hit two run homer while Nick Swisher went 4-4 with a run but the Tribe left too many on the base paths. Danny Salazar toes the rubber in Sunday’s series ending bout with visiting Minnesota. Salazar is coming off of a 5-3 loss at Kansas City where he allowed four runs on five hits while striking out nine in seven innings.
Minnesota are 7-1 in their last 8 games following a win while the over is 9-2 in the Twins last 11 Sunday games. The over is 8-0 in Cleveland’s last 8 games as a home favorite while the over is 10-1 in their last 11 games following a loss and is 10-1 in the Indians last 11 games as a favorite. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. Cleveland can win this one but I certainly wouldn’t put money on them because of obvious reasons…
