Minnesota can clinch home field advantage for the wild-card round by winning one game or Cleveland losing one game, and can claim the AL Central title by finishing with two victories.
The Twins, who suffered just their sixth loss in 29 games at Target Field in Friday night's opener, 7-2, own the head-to-head tiebreaker with Cleveland or if there should be a three-way tie for first.
Pineda (2-0, 3.18 ERA), penciled in to start Game 3 if necessary of the best-of-three wild-card series that begins Tuesday, hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his four starts this season.
He comes in off an 8-1 victory over the Cubs in Wrigley Field last Saturday. He allowed one run on four hits over five innings.
