Twins Vs. Indians Lineups: Minnesota's Liam Hendriks Searching For 1st Victory Of 2012

Aiming to take the second game of the series, the Minnesota Twins will send winless right-hander Liam Hendriks to the mound on Wednesday night to face the Indians at Progressive Field.

Hendriks currently sports a woeful 0-7 record with a 6.14 earned-run average over 13 starts this season, and has served up 25 hits to opposing batters over his last 13 and 2/3 innings pitched.

The Twins used a clutch two-run 12th inning on Tuesday to open the series on the right note, in a game where Minnesota batters also racked up a whopping 16 hits. Ron Gardenhire's team will hope to get the better of Cleveland right-hander Zach McAllister (5-7, 4.15 ERA) in Game 2 of the series.
