Tonight the Cleveland Indians kick off a 3 game series against the Minnesota Twins. It will be Justin Masterson going against the Twins, left hander Pedro Hernandez. All eyes will be focused on the Indians hot hitting Ryan Raburn.
Many will be watching to see if Raburn cooled off after the Indians day off yesterday. The last thing Raburn wanted to do was not play baseball. The guy has been on fire over his last 14 at bats. He is hitting everything pitchers are throwing at him. The guy can't be stopped. I think he will keep things going.
The Indians have a 4 game winning streak going and the starting pitching staff has done an excellent job lately. They haven't given up much while the Indians offense has found a way to take on great pitchers and beat them.
Cleveland is at 12-13 on the season. If they can sweep the Twins it will do a lot to help them make a move in the A.L. Central. Masterson has been good this season. If the Indians offense can give him the kind of run support they have produced since returning to Progressive Filed, he should be able to give Francona some productive innings on the mound.
This should be a great weekend for baseball in Cleveland, if you're not doing much get down to the ball park and support your Cleveland Indians baseball team. Roll-Tribe!!!
