The Cleveland Indians will look to continue their march towards postseason baseball this Saturday, as they take on a decent Minnesota Twins team at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Despite having one of the worst statistical offenses in the major leagues, this team still manages to score some runs, as they are 17th in the league in runs scored, but rank toward the very bottom in statistics like average and OBP.
It is tough to know whether this offense will fall off a cliff at some point, or they will be able to increase their average and on base numbers, but the latter certainly needs to happen if this team is going to contend this year, as they have a good pitching staff, not an elite one.
This offense probably will need to score quite a few runs this Saturday if they want to pick up the win, as they send Sam Hentges to the mound who has not exactly instilled confidence so far entering the game with an ERA over 6.
Minnesota on the other hand is a team who could not have possibly had a worst start to the season, but seem to be turning it around at least a little bit as evidenced by their recent 5 game winning streak.
They do enter this game losing their last two games, however, and they simply cannot afford to consistently drop games at this point if they want any chance of turning the season around. The guy who has been Mr. Consistent for them not only this year, but over the past couple years has been Nelson Cruz, who is hitting .301 and has 16 home runs to go along with 38 RBI.
The Twins will send Kenta Maeda to the hill here and although he has an ERA close to 5, I think there should be some reason for optimism, as he is starting to put things together a bit and it would not surprise me if he goes out there and gives the Twins a quality start.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
The Minnesota Twins are deserved favorites in this spot, as I have liked what I have seen from Maeda a lot more then what I have seen from Hentges, and this Twins offense is starting to come around. Although it seems a bit crazy to lay -150 juice with a team who has struggled as much as the Twins have this year, that is the direction I am inclined to go, as the Twins have the firepower to knock Hentges out of this game quickly.
