It's been 168 batters since tonight's starter Corey Kluber has walked a man, a streak that extends all the way back to May 8th. With the relative futility of this season's Twins lineup, it's not hard to imagine that stretch might continue for the Klubot, but perhaps baseball will do one of those weird things that it does, and the Minnesota offense will show up against one of the American League's leading Cy Young candidate.

Kyle Gibson will oppose him, coming off a very strong outing against Los Angeles that was almost predictably coughed up by the bullpen. It's been almost a full month since Gibby gave up more than three earned runs in a start, and the Twins will need to hold the Cleveland lineup hostage to have a chance.
