The Indians head into Minnesota for a big 3-game AL Central Division series that has playoff implications for both teams. Each is out of the race for the division title, but each is still alive in the Wild Card race.

The Indians took 2 of 3 games from the Twins in their last series, which was in the beginning of August in Cleveland.
The Indians are hot and they have Danny Salazar on the hill, who has beaten the Twins twice in his last 2 starts facing them, which included one in Minnesota. In his last 2 starts against them he has struck out 21 batters in 13 innings.
Salazar will be facing a Twins lineuo that ranks 11th in the Majors in runs scored.

The Twins have played themselves on the bubble of the AL Wild Card race, but did get a big 8-1 win over the L.A. Angels in their last game.
Ervin Santana has been solid as of late and has an ERA of 1.55 in his last 4 starts. Minnesota had won his first 3 starts in that span before failing to help Santana out on offense in his last start against the Detroit Tigers with him giving up 2 earned runs in 7 innings in a 4-2 loss.
The Twins are 4-1 in Santana’s last 5 starts. He will be facing a Cleveland lineup that ranks 20th in runs scored.
