MLB Odds – Indians Visit Twins in Minnesota

The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins are battling at the top of the American League Central. The two go toe-to-toe on Tuesday in Minnesota in the second contest of a huge four-game series.

Danny Salazar (4-5, 4.15 ERA) gets the call for Cleveland. He took a no-decision in his last outing, which was a 4-1 loss in Tampa Bay. The 27-year-old righty went 5.1 innings, allowing a run on seven hits with eight strikeouts and four walks. Salazar is 3-2 in his last nine starts against Minnesota with a 4.63 ERA. On the road this season, Salazar is 3-2 in nine games (eight starts) with a 4.85 ERA.

Minnesota will respond with Bartolo Colon (4-9, 6.77 ERA), who tossed seven scoreless innings of five-hit ball in a 4-0 shutout of Milwaukee in his last start. Colon struck out five and walked one in his fifth start (in which he is 2-1 with an ERA of 4.02) with the Twins since coming from Atlanta. He won his last start against Cleveland, which came last April as a member of the New York Mets. The 44-year-old spent the first 5.5 years of his career in Cleveland.

Coming into this series, the two had split their last 10 meetings, with eight games falling under the total.
