The Cleveland Indians will send Corey Kluber (2-4 with a 4.14 ERA) to the mound for the second game of their three-game set with the visiting Minnesota Twins.

 

The 30-year-old right-hander had serious problems in his last start on May 9, when he gave up 5 runs on 5 hits and walked three over 2 2/3 innings of a 1-7 loss at Houston.

 

Kluber is 6-4 with a 3.64 ERA in fifteen career starts versus Minnesota, but gave up 12 hits and 8 runs in 9 2/3 innings in the last two of them in Minneapolis on Sept. 23 (2-4) and at Progressive Field five days later (2-4).

 

Trevor Plouffe is 12-for-39, with 3 HR and 10 RBI off Kluber, Joe Mauer is 11-for-39, with 2 HR, 4 RBI and five walks, Danny Santana is hitting .286 (4-for-14), with two doubles, an RBI and a walk against him, Kennys Vargas is 4-for-14, with a homer and 2 RBI, while Oswaldo Arcia has 5 hits in 19 at-bats with a solo home run.

 

Ervin Santana (0-2 with a 3.86 ERA) takes the hill for the Twins, who look to avoid ninth straight loss and second in this series after Friday’s 6-7 loss in the series opener.

 

Santana was hammered for 3 runs over 3 1/3 innings in a 2-7 loss at U.S. Cellular Field last Saturday, posting a 4.70 ERA in his last three starts.

 

He’s posted a 3.85 ERA in five games against the Indians over the last three years, but is 0-2 with a 6.61 ERA in three starts at Progressive Field in this period.

 

Jose Ramirez has 6 hits in 8 at-bats off Santana, with a double, triple and 4 RBI, Mike Napoli is 7-for-19, with 3 HR and 10 RBI against him, Yan Gomes is 2-for-7, with a solo home run and a walk, Michael Brantley is 7-for-30, but with a homer, 5 RBI and a walk, while Carlos Santana is 6-for-24, but with a solo home run and two walks.

 

I think that we’ll see more than seven runs in the second game of this series.
