Indians-Twins Preview

(AP) -- Although they've put some life into their slim playoff chances with outstanding pitching, the Cleveland Indians could have a tough time getting their offense on track in Minnesota.

The resurgent Indians hope to keep shaving games off their postseason deficits as they go after their fourth straight victory Friday night against 15-game winner Phil Hughes and the Twins.

Cleveland (79-73) appeared to be all but done after a four-game losing streak dropped it 7 1/2 games behind Central-leading Detroit and six back of Kansas City for the second wild-card spot.
