Staff aces on mound as Twins host Indians

Sep 3, 2007 - 1:00 PM Cleveland (78-58) at Minnesota (69-68) 2:10 pm EDT

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) - Staff aces Johan Santana and C.C. Sabathia will face off on Monday when the Minnesota Twins host the Cleveland Indians.

Santana (14-10, 3.06 ERA) is looking to avenge a loss to Sabathia and the Indians during his last start on Saturday. The two-time Cy Young Award winner allowed four runs and a season-high 10 hits in six innings in a 4-3 setback.

For his career, Santana is 7-6 with a 3.31 ERA in 29 games - 19 starts - against the Indians.

Cleveland, which holds a 5 1/2 game lead over the Detroit Tigers (73-64) in the American League Central Division, will look to extend that lead when Sabathia (15-7, 3.37) takes the mound.

Sabathia outdueled Santana during his last start, allowing two runs and seven hits over six innings to earn the win. The 27-year-old lefthander has allowed two runs or fewer in his last eight starts, and hasn't given up three runs since July 19 against the Texas Rangers.

Sabathia is 3-1 with a 1.95 ERA in four starts against the Twins this season.
