Before Sunday, the Twins' most recent three-game sweep in Cleveland came June 14-16, 1991, the final three games of their 15-game winning streak. That last game put the Twins a half-game up in the division, and they had at least a share of first place the rest of the season.
The last time the Twins faced Chris Sale, the matchup with Ervin Santana turned out to be a bit of a dud, as both starters struggled. They get him again to open the four-game series at Boston with Jose Berrios on the mound (6p.m., FSN).
