That didn't take long.

Trevor Bauer and the Cleveland Indians look to tie the series against the Minnesota Twins after dropping the first game in the three-game series. Last night the offense came alive for a rare nine-run display, but Tribe pitching didn't help much and they ultimately fell 10-9. The majority of that loss was pitched by the bullpen, so if Bauer has another nine-inning gem in him, now would be a good time to display it.

Abraham Almonte is also making his debut for the Indians in centerfield. Almonte was brought over in the scrabble trade with the San Diego Padres. There is at least an outside chance that reliever Shawn Armstrong could make his Major League debut tonight, should Bauer not go the full nine innings.
