Cleveland Indians vs Minnesota Twins

---

The season isn't over, but there is no more margin for error left for the 2015 Cleveland Indians. Tonight's hopes will rest on the shoulder of the ace, Corey Kluber, who hasn't been quite himself since his return from the DL. If the Indians hope to stay alive, look no further than Kluber's performance tonight. If he begins to struggle, given the implications of the game and the health of the captain of the rotation, I wouldn't be surprised to see Francona give him a very short leash.

Phil Hughes was originally tonight's starter but is a late scratch because of illness.
