MLB Game Preview: Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians - Date: 9/14/2019 Indians look to gain more ground on Twins in DHFLMThe Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians saw their offenses make an immediate impact in their series opener, only to see Mother Nature wash away those results following a near-two-hour rain delay.That game ultimately was postponed after 2 1/2 innings -- with the score tied 2-2 -- resulting in a split doubleheader Saturday as the American League Central rivals reconvene in Cleveland.The first game will begin at 1:10 p.m. ET while the second is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m.The Indians (86-61) have won four in a row to move within 3 1/2 games of the Twins (89-57), against whom they have won nine of 16 meetings -- including six of the last eight.Only one of the four starting pitchers has been confirmed for Saturday's showdown, as Cleveland right-hander Mike Clevinger (11-2, 2.72 ERA) will take the mound for the first contest.Clevinger improved to 10-0 record with a 2.00 ERA in his last 13 outings after allowing two runs on four hits in 6 1/3 innings of a 5-2 victory at Minnesota on Sunday.The 28-year-old's strong showing upped his mark to 2-0 in three starts this season against the Twins and 4-2 with a 2.87 ERA in 13 career appearances (10 starts) versus the club."I'm here to win," Clevinger told reporters recently. "I want us to win. I want to us to beat the (heck) out of them every time we see them. Especially when we're this close and we have this kind of race going down the stretch, it makes it that much more fun." Jorge Polanco (1-for-15) and Max Kepler (2-for-24) have struggled mightily against Clevinger, although Minnesota rookie Luis Arraez is 4-for-8 versus the hurler.Arraez, 22, enters Saturday's action with a 10-game hitting streak, during which he is 17-for-39 with 10 runs scored.The Twins have elected to use a pair of bullpen games for the doubleheader, while the Indians are following suit with their bullpen for the finale."We have 18 innings to cover at least, you never know what's going to happen," Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli told the media following the washout. "This is a pretty unique experience. I don't know if I've seen the two-bullpen-days in one day, but I think we have the personnel to make it work." Cleveland's Jason Kipnis told reporters that Friday's postponement could play into his team's favor."They had a bullpen game going tomorrow, and now they got to fit it into two," the 32-year-old Kipnis said. "So they lose out on (Friday starter Jake) Odorizzi. Granted, we lose (Aaron) Civale, but we get to come back with (Clevinger) and they got to piece together two starts tomorrow." While Cleveland isn't tipping its hand regarding the identity of its opener for the nightcap, the club announced that closer Brad Hand will not pitch in the series due to a tired left arm.The Indians called up reliever James Karinchak from Triple-A Columbus to provide a jolt to the team's bullpen."The reason we've got him now is there's 15 games left," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "That potentially gives us a chance to pitch him in a couple games, maybe not with the bases loaded and two outs, that type of situation. Top Rated Sports Services. To see if he could possibly help us down the stretch."At worst, what it does is it gives us a read on where this kid is going into spring training. ... And again, that's at worst. Maybe this kid comes up and gets everybody out. We'll see." --Field Level Media
