Twins seek to wrap up wild card in Cleveland

CLEVELAND -- Wild-card-hunting Minnesota is hot, but no team is hotter than the Cleveland Indians, who will host the Twins on Tuesday night at Progressive Field in the opener of a three-game series.

The Twins come to Cleveland fresh off a four-game sweep of the Tigers in Detroit, and Minnesota's magic number for clinching the second American League wild-card spot is two.

Minnesota leads the Los Angeles Angels by five games with six to play.
