From Mandy Bell:

With just two big league starts under his belt, Aaron Civale was asked to take the mound in the series finale against baseball’s most powerful lineup in front of a sellout crowd, as a piece of first place in the American League Central was within striking distance.

What seemed like a daunting task became a Sunday stroll for the 24-year-old right-hander, who tossed six stellar frames to lead his Tribe to a 7-3 victory over the Twins on Sunday afternoon at Target Field.

“I’m just out here trying to put the team in a good spot to win,” Civale said. “These are the games you work hard for. All the tough days that you go through throughout a career, these are what you come out to play for. You play for the team and we’re in a good spot now.”
