The Milwaukee Brewers need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Brewers have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Brewers have lost seven of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Adam Lind leads Milwaukee with 67 hits and 36 RBI while Ryan Braun and Gerardo Parra have combined for 64 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have lost five of their last seven home games. Kyle Lohse takes the hill, and he’s 3-9 with a 6.30 ERA and 64 strikeouts this season. Lohse is 0-1 with a 9.28 ERA and four strikeouts in his career against the Twins.
The Twins are 2-6 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 1-4 in Mays last 5 starts. The Brewers are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 1-6 in Lohses last 7 starts. The Twins are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Milwaukee.
Not sure how anybody can take the Brewers and have to pay chalk. That's not a good combination. May has been better than Lohse, the Twins are playing better than the Brewers and we're getting plus money. I'll take the Twins.
