Indians-Twins preview

CLEVELAND -- Two struggling American League Central Division teams will meet at Progressive Field Monday night. One has been struggling all year. The other has been struggling for a week.

The first place Cleveland Indians will host the last place Minnesota Twins. That the Twins are struggling is not news. At 49-81 they have the worst record in the American League and the second worst record in the majors.

At 73-56 the Indians have the second best record in the American League, but they are coming off a disastrous seven-game trip to Oakland and Texas in which they lost five of the seven games. They could easily have lost six of the seven games because the score in one of their wins was 1-0.
