The Baltimore Orioles look to get back to their winning ways when they visit the Milwaukee Brewers Monday.
Baltimore has been struggling to find some pitching lately and some great performances at the plate have gone by the watside and the result has been a drop from first to third in the American League East. That wasn't an issue Sunday with Miguel Gonzalez holding the Cleveland offense to a pair of runs through six innings in a 4-2 victory. The offense did just enough with Manny Machado and Nelson Cruz clubbing long balls to give the Birds consecutive victories. Chris Tillman draws the game one start versus Milwaukee looking to bounce back from his worse effort of 2014. Tillman gave up eight runs (six earned) on six hits in just one inning of a 9-8 loss at Pittsburgh.

Milwaukee was one of the best teams in the game in the early going of 2014 and were well in front of the pack in the National League Central before slowing down the last few weeks. The Brewers had dropped six of eight before exploding past Miami 7-1 on the road Sunday. The offense staked starter Jimmy Nelson to a 6-0 lead after three and it was cruise control on the mound the rest of the way. Nelson held the Marlins scoreless on five hits through 5.2 frames to get the win while the bats pounded out 14 hits. Jonathan Lucroy posted three hits and drove in a pair of runs with Ryan Braun and Khris Davis scoring twice. Kyle Lohse makes his 11th start of 2014 when he face the Orioles for the first time since 2011. Lohse has been the best option in the Brewers rotation with a 6-1 record and 2.67 ERA over ten outings.
Lohse has to be on his toes because Baltimore can do some damage on the scoreboard. I am looking at the Brewers and hoping Lohse is strong once again and the bats back him up...
