The Twins have an opportunity to gain a series sweep over Cleveland today, but they’re likely to need a better start out of Scott Diamond than they’ve been getting out of him in his past two starts. He does seem to do a bit better at home than on the road, so maybe that’s a reason to have some hope.
Diamond’s battery mate will be Chris Herrmann, who’s getting a rare start behind the plate for the Twins.

Well, that was a pretty ugly way to end a series. Two hits? That’s a load of crap.
