Minnesota Twins' Max Kepler (26) is congratulated by Jorge Polanco after hitting a solo home run off Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Dan Otero in the sixth inning of a baseball game, Saturday, May 13, 2017, in Cleveland. Trevor Bauer hopes to snap out of his early-season struggles and help the Indians avoid the sweep, while Minnesota sends red-hot Hector Santiago to the mound on Sunday afternoon.
Bauer has permitted at least four runs in five of his six starts this season and faced Minnesota in the only other, limiting the Twins to two tallies on three hits over 6 1/3 frames in a victory on April 20.
The Indians could not dispel their offensive drought as they notched three hits for the second game in a row to move their home record to 6-8 in front of 28,379 fans at Progressive Field. "We really weren't scoring very much". "We're getting in that mode where everybody is trying to do more".

Byron Buxton ran back and leaped at the wall, but the ball rolled out of his glove. "The nit-picking kind of bit me in the butt". "Once I get out of my aggressive mode, that's when I kind of dug my own grave today". Fortunately these last couple starts I was able to locate better.
"Even the inning before, I wasn't finding the lower half of the zone the way I felt like I had been", Clevinger said. Tomlin will have an extra day of rest under his belt before facing the Twins, although his 1-2 mark with a 9.95 ERA in three home starts leaves plenty to be desired.
He allowed his first hit - a single up the middle to Michael Brantley - with two outs in the opening inning, then didn't allow another until Yan Gomes led off the fifth with a base hit. He walked five, including two apiece in the third and fifth. After Carlos Santana drew a walk, Francisco Lindor struck out for the second out.
"He hit it right on the nose", said Francona, whose team left eight on base.
