Indians Vs. Twins: Cleveland Looks For First Win In A While On Wednesday Afternoon

After blowing a late lead and losing their 11th straight game, the Cleveland Indians won't have much time to mourn as they get right back up for an early game against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon.

Justin Masterson (7-10, 4.78 ERA) will come up to the mound for game three of the series, facing off against Brian Duensing (2-6, 4.39 ERA) of the Twins. Masterson will have plenty to do if the past few games have been any indication, as the Indians have been giving up runs at record rates during their 11 game losing streak, giving up 21 already in the first two games of the Twins series.

If Cleveland manages to lose their 12th game in a row, it will tie a franchise record losing streak. A loss would also push the Twins into a tie for third place in the AL Central with the Indians.

The game will be at Progressive Field at 12:05 p.m. ET.
