The Minnesota Twins look to make up ground in the standings with a win against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday.
The question for the Milwaukee Brewers is can they get close to .500 before the All Star break to put themselves in a position to make a second half run. The Brewers might be in dire straits but have now won back to back contests following a 4-2 win at Target Field Saturday. Matt Garza held the big Minnesota offense to a run on six hits over seven frames to get the win. The bats totaled ten hits and walked four times with Ryan Braun going 2-4 with a solo jack while Carlos Gomez went 4-4 with three RBI’s. Mike Fiers gets the ball against Minnesota for the second time in his career on Sunday. Fiers is coming off his best outing of the year in a 1-0 victory against St Louis with a four hitter over six frames.

The Minnesota Twins are trying to stay atop the American League Central but they can ill afford a losing streak of any length because the American League Central is loaded. Starter JR Graham was very good in his first career start with six including a homer served up through four innings with four relievers finishing. The normally reliable Twins attack totaled seven hits and a base on balls with Brian Dozier going 2-4 with a homer and a pair of runs with Joe Mauer going 2-4 with a run knocked in.Mike Pelfrey looks to continue his hot work on the mound when he opposes Milwaukee. Pelfrey has given up just a single run in three straight outings covering 27 innings of work.
Milwaukee are 13-30 in their last 43 road games and are 28-58 in their last 86 overall while going 28-58 in their last 86 games on grass. The over is 21-7 in Minnesota’s last 28 Sunday games and the Twins are 19-7 in their last 26 home games while the over is 36-14-1 in their last 51 home games. The Brewers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings. Could the Twins get swept? They certainly can’t afford it…
