Tonight, the still-winless Liam Hendriks will be taking the mound for Minnesota, facing Cleveland's righty Zach McAllister. Hendriks has had a run of bad luck (and not always great pitching) on the hill this season, so hopefully he's able to secure his first win against a team almost as bad as his own...

Notes
-Hendriks will be making his 18th start tonight. If he doesn't notch a win tonight, he'll be the player with the third-longest winless streak to start a career in MLB history. He is 0-0 with a 6.55 ERA against the Indians this season.
-McAllister has lost 3 of his last 6 starts, and received no decisions in the other three, so it's not like the Twins are facing a red-hot pitcher tonight. Hopefully they can help Hendriks get his first win this season.
-Justin Morneau was the Twins' nominee for the Roberto Clemente award this season for all he has done (and continues to do...) for the community. Vote here for Morneau, and voting will end October 14, 2012.
-Joe Mauer is still in the running for a batting title this season, hitting .325 and trailing only Miguel Cabrera (.333) and Mike Trout (.328).
-Despite the Twins' not-so-hot season, they've still been able to pretty much dominate the Indians this year, winning 11 of their 13 meetings so far, including the last four in a row.
