Mike Clevinger starts against Minnesota Twins, prays for offensive support

Mike Clevinger did not give up a run in his previous outing. That might not be good enough with Cleveland's offense.

Minnesota Twins @ Cleveland Indians

Last night, the Cleveland Indians wasted a gem of a performance by Josh Tomlin and lost to the Minnesota Twins, who only scored a single run. That's right. The Twins score a SINGLE run and won. Glorious. Today, Mike Clevinger will make his second start of the season and pray to whatever deity he worships that his offense can score runs. Opposite him is Josh Berrios making his 2017 season debut after putting up dominating numbers in AAA. Luckily for the Tribe, Berrios is a right handed pitcher, so they shouldn't be completely inept at the plate. A win today would do wonders for the collective psyche that is still trying to understand how the Indians lost a game in which Josh Tomlin only gave up one run. *sigh* And now, here's the starting 9 for your Tribe:
