  Minnesota Twins (12-12) at Cleveland Indians (12-13)  Series 10, Games 26, 27 and 28 Progressive Field, Cleveland: 1.140, Extreme hitters park.   Series Overview The Twins visit the Indians for the first time this season and both teams have close to identical records at this point. However, most experts are projecting the Indians to win 84 games while having the Twins winning 74. This is no surprise when you look at the make-up of both rosters.

After a loss on May 1 that marked the team's sixth defeat in a row, Minnesota was 9-18 and already 10 games out of first place in...
