Indians and Twins postponed on Wednesday night

Indians and Twins postponed on Wednesday night

Ramirez then hit his fourth homer of the season in the third, a two-run shot deep to right that cleared the high wall in Minnesota.

Cleveland, off its trip to the World Series, has won the first two games of the series by a 14-5 margin, receiving big offensive performances to complement steady pitching. He has four RBIs in the two games after entering the series with one all season, coming on an Opening Day home run. The California native breezed through six innings on one run in Chicago but struggled a bit more on Thursday against the Tigers, surrendering four runs on five hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings.

The Twins will try to bounce back from a pair of losses and put some runs on the board when they host the Cleveland Indians in the second of a four-game series on Tuesday.

"It's been a stretch where our pitching has not been a problem, from the way our starters have thrown for the most part, to the fact that everybody that I've called upon in nearly every situation has been able to do the job", Twins manager Paul Molitor said.

Wednesday was Joe Mauer's 34th birthday.

"It was good because I really haven't been in a game long enough to get in a rhythm in the past couple starts", Tomlin said.

"I think that I'm swinging at more strikes and looking for balls that are in the strike zone to hit", Encarnacion said.

Encarnacion said he never anxious about the slow start or put more pressure on himself. Tomlin had his longest outing of the season and it was the seventh time in nine games a Cleveland starter has pitched at least six innings after doing so once through the first turn of the rotation. He missed the last three months of last season while recovering from the surgery, but has had trouble regaining the velocity on his fastball. But the ball hit the heel of the glove and fell to the turf, allowing Michael Brantley to score for a 2-0 lead.

"Obviously if I'm not going to keep the ball in the park, I'm going to be pretty frustrated with myself", Gibson said.

Lonnie Chisenhall added an RBI single for a 3-0 lead.

This was the first postponement for the Twins this year and only their 16th in eight seasons at Target Field.

Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer (0-2, 8.44 ERA), who was scheduled to face Minnesota left-hander Adalberto Mejia (0-1, 4.05) on Wednesday, will be pushed back a day to go head-to-head with Twins' ace Ervin Santana (3-0, 0.41 ERA). Tomlin gave up three runs on seven hits in his six innings to lower his ERA to 11.68. It is the fifth time in his last nine starts he hasn't made it past the fifth inning.
