The Milwaukee Brewers head to Target Field to battle the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.
Milwaukee looks to have emerged from their recent slowdown and none too soon with St Louis beginning to pick things up. They still took one on the chin from Minnesota Tuesday but they still have won seven of eleven. The Brewers dropped a 6-4 decision as Yovani Gallardo labored through five frames with all six runs allowed on eight hits including a pair of homers. The Brew Crew struggled to score despite eight hits and eight walks with Ryan Braun leading the way with a pair of RBI's. Milwaukee sends Marco Estrada to the bump to contain the bats of Minnesota. Estrada comes in off of a 9-5 victory over the Cubs where he allowed three runs on six hits and four BB in six frames.

Minnesota appears to be in survival mode as their recent slide dropped them a few games below the .500 mark and that is not where they want to be after a decent beginning to 2014. The Twins picked up a much needed win versus the Brewers but have still dropped seven of eleven. Starter Samuel Deduno came up big when the Twins needed him with a pair of runs plated over five innings before Casey Fein and Glen Perkins gave up single runs to make things interesting. Brian Dozier homered and drove in two with Josh Willingham clubbing a three run bomb to keep the team in the AL Central conversation. Ricky Nolasco gets the ball Wednesday hoping to build on one of his best outings of 2014. Nolasco picked up a 6-1 road win over the Yankees with the lone run plated on seven hits and four walks in six innings.
Milwaukee has been playing well and Milwaukee has not so I'm not surprised the Brewers are favorites. However as we saw the Twins are still dangerous and I'm inclined to back the the home dog...
