The Minnesota Twins clash with the Cleveland Indians as the AL Central foes open a four-game divisional series on Monday evening.
Jorge Polanco hit a solo homer and doubled three times, and the Twins beat the Indians 5-2 on Monday night.
Brent Rooker hit a 2-run homer and the Twins blanked the Indians 3-0 on Tuesday night.
Joe Ryan carried a perfect game into the 7th inning of his 2nd big league appearance, carrying the Twins to another dominant 3-0 win over the Indians.
Minnesota has had a disappointing 2021 campaign, they enter this series at the bottom of the AL Central and the 3rd worst record in the American League.
Jorge Polanco has fared well against Cleveland this season, posting a .314 average with seven RBI’s in 35 at-bats. The 28-year old shortstop is having a big season, bashing 26 dingers with 82 RBI’s and a solid .840 OPS.
The Twins are scoring an average of 4.51 runs per game, ranking them 16th overall. The pitching staff has filed a 5.01 team ERA, pegging them 27th in the Majors.
Cleveland has exceeded expectations this season and battled through several big injuries to sit above .500 in the month of September. Despite only being 68-66, that record places them at 2nd place in the lackluster AL Central Division.
Jose Ramirez continues to come up big at the dish, launching 3 homers with 6 RBI’s in his last 8 games. The 28-year old third baseman is quietly having another outstanding year, bashing 32 homers with 86 RBI’s and a dazzling .898 OPS.
The Indians rank 17th in the big leagues with 4.47 runs per game. The pitching staff is sporting a 4.35 team ERA, good for 17th overall.

Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Twins have been off to the races since this series started, but it’s hard to sweep the same team with 4 consecutive victories. It’s even harder doing it on the road.
Minnesota can’t keep up with the dominant pitching they’ve shown in recent games, especially with Randy Dobnak slated to start on Saturday. Dobnak will give Cleveland the opportunity to get the hits going again and build some confidence.
I’m taking the Tribe to bounce back in the finale.
