Twins Vs. Indians: Minnesota Tries To Keep Rolling In Game 2 Against Cleveland

After suffering a three game sweep at the hands of the Chicago White Sox earlier in the week, the Minnesota Twins (41-58) took out their frustrations on the Cleveland Indians (50-50) with an impressive 11-0 win in the first game of the weekend series between the two teams on Friday night.

The series resumes at Target Field on Saturday evening, with Minnesota right-hander Samuel Deduno (1-0, 3.91 ERA) on the mound looking to build on his last start when he gave up just six hits and one run in six and a third innings to beat the Kansas City Royals.

Cleveland will start with right-hander Justin Masterson (7-8, 4.12 ERA) who heads to the hill with a 5-2 record in his last eight starts. Earlier in the year, Masterson took a loss in his last start against the Twins, giving up seven hits and three runs in six innigs of a game Minnesota won 6-3 on June 3rd.

Game two of the series starts on Saturday night at 7:10 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports North.
