The Indians have dominated 3 of the 4 teams in the AL Central.
The one team that they haven’t gotten to got them again on Monday as the Twins routed the Indians 12-5 in the opener of the 4 game set.
The two teams do it over again Tuesday night inside Progressive Field.
Minnesota hasn’t had much luck this season, at all really.
When it comes to playing the Cleveland Indians, they seem to take it up a couple notches.
Monday was another one of those cases as the Twins improved to 6-4 against the 1st place Indians with a 12-5 route.
Max Kepler hit three 2 run homers to really set the tone as the Twins blew things open early.
Trying to follow up Jose Berrios and his solid outing, the Twins send out Kyle Gibson here on Tuesday.
Gibson is just 3-6 on the season, but has turned in back to back solid outings. He earned a win by allowing just 1 run against Boston and then followed that up with a ND against Baltimore after allowing 2 runs.
Monday was one of those games to get out of their system.
Danny Salazar was knocked around and will have an MRI Monday as the coaches said he was pitching tentatively. It’s been shocking to see Indians pitchers struggle, but the starting staff hasn’t been on their top form lately.
As for the bullpen, Andrew Miller got his first work in after getting 6 days off and promptly allowed a solo homerun to Joe Mauer in his first batter faced in an Indians uniform. It was that kind of night for Cleveland.
Trying to right the ship here, the Indians send out Carlos Carrasco.
The RH is 7-4 on the season with an impressive 2.45 ERA.
Carrasco allowed just 3 runs last time out against an impressive Nationals lineup, but had Strasburg on the other end of the start, earning him the tough luck loss.
