Minnesota Twins at Cleveland Indians MLB Matchup

The Cleveland Indians have won four in a row to build steam heading into Friday’s opener of their pivotal three-game series against the visiting Minnesota Twins.

The Indians (86-61) aim to continue their ascent in the American League Central Division when they open their nine-game homestand versus the first-place Twins (89-57), against whom they have won nine of 16 meetings — including five of the last seven.

Cleveland is 3 1/2 games behind division-leading Minnesota and a half-game behind Tampa Bay for the second wild-card spot.

“I think we’ve kind of earned the right to be able to look at the scoreboard,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “It’s fun to look at the scoreboard. It’s (more fun) when the other teams are losing, but if we win, we’re gonna end up where we’re supposed to. I think that’s how we look at it.”
