AL Central rivals meet on Friday night as the Minnesota Twins welcome in the Cleveland Indians to Target Field.
Cleveland has opened a 6.0 game lead in the Central, but has struggled against Minnesota this season.
The Indians lead the AL Central by 6.0 games, but can take nothing for granted with the entire slate against the division the rest of the way.
Cleveland comes in off a split against the Astros, but it felt like a win for Cleveland. After dropping the first two games, the offense responded in a big way. The wins gave Cleveland an 8-2 homestand.
RH Danny Salazar gets the ball for the Tribe, as he finally has hit his groove after losing it for a couple starts.
Salazar earned a no decision last time out as he allowed one run in 5.2 innings. His pitch count got up there as he struck out 11 in the contest.
In 9 starts against the Twins, Salazar has gone 3-3 with a 4.63 ERA.
The Twins will have a lot of say over the AL Central race as they take on the division leaders here and then get the Tigers for 3 next week.
Minnesota has been absolutely horrific this season, but seem to come to life when they play the Indians.
2B Brian Dozier needs no awakening, as he continues to tear the cover off the ball. Dozier has hit 25 homeruns since the All Star Break and has 39 total on the season.
He’ll look to continue swinging his hot bat here against a team that he causes a lot of fits for.
Tyler Duffey returns from Triple A to try and make it 2 wins against Cleveland.
He allowed 5 runs in his start earlier this season, but was given 13 runs of support in a route back at Progressive Field.
Duffey allowed 6 runs in his last start to the Tigers back on August 24th, before being shipped to Rochester following the loss.
