TWINS UPDATE

Think this is a big chance for the Twins to gain ground in the playoff race? Think again.

Boof Bonser gave up three runs in 52/3 innings in his only appearance there last season.

INDIANS UPDATE

The Indians entered Thursday 14 games better than they were at the same point last season. ... C.C. Sabathia has 92 career wins, the most of any current pitcher under 28. ... Cleveland's 528 runs entering Thursday were the fourth most in the majors. ... Former Twins P Aaron Fultz is on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained chest muscle.
