Cleveland Indians at Minnesota TwinsFriday, September 9, 2016 - 8:10 PM - Target Field

TV: MLBTV, STO

Radio: WTAM

Oh boy, it's the dreaded Minnesota Twins again. The Indians managed to sweep them a couple weeks ago, but they come into tonight's matchup still tied with the Twins in the season series (8-8); they are the only AL Central rival that the Indians don't have a winning record against.

Brian Dozier is looking to become Minnesota's first 40-homer in 45 years (Harmon Killebrew, 1971). He's hit 6 of his 39 homers against the Indians, and has a career 1.477 OPS (25 PA) against Danny Salazar, tonight's starter.
