Cody Anderson takes the hill for the Indians this evening, looking to rebound from his recent struggles and put a damper in the Twins wild card hopes. The tall right-hander has posted an 8.40 ERA over his last three starts, with just seven strikeouts compared to 24 hits allowed. Anderson is 2-3 on the year.

The Twins counter with right-hander Mike Pelfrey. The veteran is 5-7 on the year with a 3.65 ERA. Pelfrey is coming off of an impressive outing last Sunday against Seattle, throwing eight innings of shutout ball.

With today's trade of Michael Bourn (and Nick Swisher), an opportunity opens up in centerfield for the Indians. Tyler Holt gets the start there tonight, batting ninth for the Tribe.
