The Minnesota Twins are back on top of the American League Central on the strength of winning seven of eleven despite Friday’s victory. The work on the mound failed Minnesota with starter Kyle Gibson allowing five runs on six hits including three long balls through seven frames before three relievers gave up five more runs. The offense couldn’t keep up with a ten hit attack but Joe Mauer did his part with a long ball and three runs driven in while Brian Dozier and Torii hunter each scored and drove in runs. Rookie JR Graham makes his first career start against the Brewers on Saturday. Graham has made 14 relief appearances with a 0-0 record with a 3.10 ERA covering 20.1 innings of work.
Milwaukee are 12-30 in their last 42 road games and are 27-58 in their last 85 overall while going 27-58 in their last 85 games on grass. The over is 13-3-1 in the Twins last 17 games as a favorite and are 21-7 in their last 28 home games while going 23-9 in their last 32 overall. The Brewers are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings. Garza has been a mess except for his long relief performance while we know nothing of Graham. Perhaps the over?
