Twins look to close in on AL Central title vs. Indians

The Cleveland Indians' aspirations of winning their fourth consecutive American League Central title were dealt a significant blow after a doubleheader sweep at the hands of the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.

The Indians (86-63) aim to avert a potential knockout blow on Sunday afternoon against the visiting Twins (91-57), who bid to inch closer toward their first division title since 2010.

AL Central-leading Minnesota holds a 5.5-game lead over Cleveland with 14 contests remaining on its schedule. The Indians, in turn, are 2 1/2 games behind Tampa Bay for the second wild-card spot with 13 to play on their slate.
