    Cleveland is hot. 6-0 since the all-star break, and all wins coming asginat teams with winning records. However, it would appear that based on his showing asginat the Sox this past Friday that Liriano might have found his groove again. It should be a close one, but I think that the Twins will not allow themselves to be swept by the Tribe. But Cleveland won’t make it easy for them.My Prediction:This will be a tie or 1-run ballgame up until the later innings when Westbrook is taken out of the game and Minnesota takes advantage of a shaky Cleveland bullpen. Final: 5-2 Twins.
