Covers Preview - After failing to do much damage to Kansas City's playoff hopes, the Minnesota Twins will try to derail the Cleveland Indians' chances when they host their division rivals in the opener of a three-game series Tuesday. Despite residing in the basement of the American League Central, Minnesota had an opportunity to help make Kansas City's hold on first place less comfortable but came away from their four-game set with only one victory.
