Indians-Twins Preview

(AP) -- While Phil Hughes has pitched very well for the Minnesota Twins of late, Cleveland's Corey Kluber has been even better.

Looking to win a seventh straight decision Thursday, Kluber can help the Indians to a road series sweep by preventing Hughes from improving to 4-0 in as many starts this month.

Among the major league leaders in ERA, Kluber (13-6, 2.41 ERA) is 6-0 with a 1.31 ERA in his last eight starts and has allowed four earned runs, struck out 55 and held opponents to a .161 average over 47 2-3 innings while going 4-0 in the last six. The right-hander gave up a run, five hits and fanned 10 for the second straight start over 7 2-3 innings of a 2-1, 11-inning victory over Baltimore on Friday.
