The Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers play Wednesday night at Miller Park.
The Minnesota Twins look for consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Twins have figured things out offensively, producing five or more runs in four of their last five games when they scored three or less runs in their first nine games of the season. The Minnesota Twins have won eight of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs. Joe Mauer leads Minnesota with 17 hits, Trevor Plouffe has six RBI and Byung Ho Park has four home runs. Tommy Milone gets the ball, and he’s 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Milone is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers could also use a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Brewers pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in four straight games and four or more runs in eight straight games. The Milwaukee Brewers clearly have to get their pitching staff in order if this season is going to be successful. Offensively, Ryan Braun leads Milwaukee with 15 hits, Chris Carter has 10 RBI and Scooter Gennett has three home runs. Jimmy Nelson takes the hill, and he’s 2-1 with a 2.79 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Nelson’s first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 2-6 in their last 8 interleague road games and 3-7 in Milones last 10 road starts. The Brewers are 4-0 in their last 4 Wednesday games and 5-2 in Nelsons last 7 home starts. The over is 16-7-3 in the last 26 meetings.
The over has been consistent when these two teams meet, and you have like the over even more with the way both teams are playing. The Twins are hitting the ball well and the Brewers can't stop allowing runs. I like the over in this spot.
