Minnesota Twins @ Cleveland Indians

Scheduled Start Time: 7:05 PM ET

Progressive Field

(Sports Network) - After having their three-game winning streak stopped in the first game of the series, the Cleveland Indians will try to bounce back on Saturday night against the Minnesota Twins at Progressive Field.

The Twins claimed the series opener on Friday night, 5-1, as their pitchers allowed the Tribe to collect just six hits on the evening.

Samuel Deduno (8-7) allowed a first-inning run on a Carlos Santana RBI single, but he settled down from there, giving up just three hits while striking out six in the triumph.

Josh Willingham had a double and two RBI on the night, while Brian Dozier, Clete Thomas and Pedro Florimon each added two hits apiece.

'It was nice to help the team for once,' Willingham said. 'I haven't done very much lately to help us win games. We've been playing pretty good. It's nice to be able to contribute. It was a big win for us.'

Ubaldo Jimenez (9-8) was saddled with the loss but pitched well regardless, allowing just two earned runs over six innings of work while striking out a season-high 10 batters.

Santana (2-for-3) was the lone Cleveland player with multiple hits, while Michael Bourn stole his 19th base of the season.

'We (haven't) lost momentum,' Bourn said following the loss. 'We're all right. We just lost a game, that's all that was. We'll be back tomorrow and be ready to play.'

On Saturday, the Twins will turn to Liam Hendriks, who has gone 0-1 with a 3.94 ERA in just three starts this season.

Hendriks made two starts in April before being sent back down to Triple-A Rochester. He was recently recalled on Aug. 9 and pitched well in a no- decision versus the White Sox, surrendering just two earned runs over 6 1/3 innings of work.

The 24-year-old has not fared well away from home during his three-year career, sporting a 1-5 record with a 6.44 ERA.

The Indians will call upon Zach McAllister, who, despite an impressive 3.59 ERA this season, is just 6-7 to show for it.

McAllister had lost four consecutive decisions before racking up back-to-back wins in recent weeks. His most recent outing was one of his most impressive of the season, as he yielded just one earned run over 6 1/3 innings of work in an Aug. 19 triumph versus the Angels.

The 25-year-old right-hander has defeated the Twins once already this year, allowing one earned run in six innings while striking out seven on Aug. 13.
