It hasn’t been easy by any means this season, but the Indians finally got to the Minnesota Twins.
Cleveland opened the 2nd half of the season with a 5-2 win over the Twins, one of the few teams they’ve struggled with this season.
The two teams continue their series Saturday night at 7:10.
It hasn’t been an easy task this year, but the Indians took it to the Twins on Friday night finally.
Carlos Carrasco turned in 6.2 innings of solid work as the offense did just enough in a 5-2 win to start the 2nd half off.
With the win, Cleveland improved to 27-11 within the AL Central.
This series is extremely important to the Indians given what’s going on else where in the division. The Tigers and Royals are in the midst of a 3 game set, meaning the Indians either pick up a game on somebody or lose a game on somebody, guaranteed.
Cleveland will send out Trevor Bauer here, who has been absolutely dominant on the road. Bauer has gone 5-1 with an ERA of just 2.57 away from Progressive Field this season.
The Indians RH was knocked around by the Yankees in his final start prior to the deadline, but has still allowed 2 runs or less in 6 of his last 7 starts.
The Minnesota Twins have been just the opposite within the AL Central.
Minnesota has gone 6-22 within the AL Central, one of the many reasons they’re buried in the cellar in the AL Central.
One thing that the Twins had done right this year was beat Cleveland. 4 of those 6 wins in the division had come against the Indians prior to Friday night.
Trying to even the series up, the Twins will send out Tyler Duffey here. Duffey improved to 3-0 over his last 3 starts with another win in is final start prior to the break.
In that span, Duffey has compiled an ERA of only 2.25.
Duffey threw 7.0 scoreless against the Indians earlier this season which improved him to 2-0 in his career against the Tribe.
