The division rival Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins are set to renew hostilities on Wednesday when they meet at Target Field.

The Indians will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Carlos Carrasco in this game. Carrasco has a 11-5 record and a 3.83 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Kyle Gibson who starts for the Twins. Right hander Gibson is 6-9 with a 6.02 ERA so far this season.

After giving up five runs in back-to-back outings, Carrasco got back on track in his last start at Tampa Bay, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh inning and striking out 10 over eight scoreless frames. He beat the Twins with 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball at Target Field on June 16 to improve to 3-6 overall against Minnesota. Joe Mauer is batting .440 (11-for-25) with a homer off Carrasco.

Gibson fell one out shy of getting through five innings at Detroit in his last outing, giving up three runs on five hits while striking out six in a no-decision. His only two wins over the past two months were both quality starts and each came at home, where he is 3-6 with a 6.55 ERA in 11 turns. Encarnacion has done some damage against Gibson, going 6-for-15 with three homers and eight RBIs.

Oddsmakers currently have the Indians listed as 156-moneyline favorites versus the Twins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Minnesota Twins are lagging six games behind first-place Cleveland in the American League Central, primarily due to their inability to beat the Indians on their home field. Winless in eight games against Cleveland at Target Field, Minnesota, which is a half-game behind the Los Angeles Angels in the wild-card race, looks to put an end to that drought when the teams resume their three-game set on Wednesday night.

The Indians put on another impressive display of domination in the series opener, clubbing five home runs in an 8-1 victory to extending their winning streak to five games. Carlos Santana went deep twice Tuesday to tie for the most homers by a visiting player at Target Field with 14, while Edwin Encarnacion added his fifth blast in as many games. The Twins, who lost for only the second time in nine games, have been outscored 56-16 by the Indians at home but have won five of six in Cleveland this season. Kyle Gibson, who is 0-2 in three starts versus the Indians this season, looks to even the series when he opposes right-hander Carlos Carrasco.

Minnesota was a 8-1 loser in its last match on the road against the Indians. They lost as +149 underdogs, while the total score of 9 made winners of UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Cleveland was a 8-1 winner on the road against the Twins. Bettors on Cleveland at -159 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
