Indians-Twins Preview

(AP) -- A second straight appearance in the wild-card round is looking bleak for the Cleveland Indians, and they didn't do themselves any favors by letting the series opener with the Minnesota Twins slip away in the late innings.

Cleveland turns to rookie starter T.J. House as it looks to bounce back Saturday night at Target Field.

The Indians (79-74) are tied with the New York Yankees and trail Seattle, Oakland and Kansas City in the wild-card standings with nine games to play, giving them few opportunities to make up ground.
