The Cleveland Indians will look to climb closer to the .500 mark, as they take on the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. The Twins, however, will not make things easy on Cleveland, as they send Griffin Jax to the mound for this one who could not have been much more impressive in his last outing and he will look to replicate that effort here on Monday.
This Cleveland Indians team has been hard to really figure out all year, as I have been expecting them to make a run at the playoffs at some point this year, but it has really never happened and they are running out of time at this point.
Triston McKenzie was impeccable for the Indians in their last game, as he was perfect through 8 innings in an eventual 11-0 win which allowed the Indians to pick up that series win against the Tigers.
The biggest problem for the Indians at this point is not them, but the play of the Chicago White Sox, as the White Sox have essentially wrapped up the division with a 10 game lead in the AL Central.
Cal Quantrill is the projected starter for this one and that is good news for Indians fans, as he has only allowed 2 runs in his last 3 outings which spanned 19 innings of work, so he is coming into this contest with plenty of momentum.
The Minnesota Twins have been awfully impressive as of late going on a nice 9-5 run and it did always seem like this team was better then their record so it will be interesting to see what they can do next year with a fresh start.
The Twins did trade Nelson Cruz before the trade deadline, and that will be a big loss going forward, but this lineup still has plenty of power with guys like Jorge Polanco having an excellent season hitting .267 with 21 home runs.
The Twins will counter Quantrill this Monday with Griffin Jax who could not have been better in his last outing showing off some serious strike out stuff and I expect more of the same this Monday afternoon.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
I do like this Minnesota Twins batting lineup and even though Quantrill has been good lately, I think the Twins will be able to get to him here. Griffin Jax is in an awesome spot to come out here and put in a quality start and I think he will be able to go deep here and put the home side in a position to pick up the victory.
