Twins Vs. Indians Lineups: Game Two Sees Few Changes For Minnesota

The Minnesota Twins are coming off a hugely dominating performance against the Cleveland Indians in game one of their three-game set. The Twins' offense was just working - getting off to a great start immediately with a three-run homerun from Justin Morneau in the first inning. By the sixth inning, the Twins had scored 11 runs, while the Indians hadn't scored any. It was a complete game shutout for for Scott Diamond.

As such, the Twins aren't switching up much at all for game two. The Indians have made a lot of changes - switching out Asdrubal Cabrera, Lou Marson, Shelley Duncan and Jose Lopez for Johnny Damon, Casey Kotchman, Jack Hannahan and Brent Lillibridge. The Twins are only making a couple changes, putting in Alexi Casilla and Danny Valencia in place of Trevor Plouffe (who is on the disabled list) and Jamey Carroll. Samuel Deduno will pitch for the Twins, while Justin Masterson will throw for the Indians.
