The Milwaukee Brewers will be trying to pick up their third consecutive series win when they take on the Minnesota Twins in the first game of their two-game interleague series on Tuesday night. The game will be played at Miller Park and is scheduled to begin at 8:10 PM. ET.

Martin Perez, 8-5, 4.80 ERA, will get the start for Minnesota. Milwaukee will give the ball to Chase Anderson, 5-2, 3.70 ERA.

Twins Looking For Second Win In Seven Days

The Twins have hit a rough stretch, losing five of their last six games. Their recent slump has also cost them sole possession of first place in the AL Central, with the team now tied with the Cleveland Indians for the division lead. They will try to snap their slump and regain the division lead with a win over the Brewers on Tuesday, giving them their second win in their last seven games.

Offensively, Minnesota is one of the best teams in the league. The team’s .270 batting average is fourth in the league. Their .335 on-base percentage is sixth, while their .497 slugging percentage leads the league. The 675 runs they have scored are third-most in the league.

Jorge Polanco leads the Twins with a .295 batting average. Nelson Cruz leads the team with 32 homers, while Max Kepler leads with 78 RBI.

Minnesota’s pitching has also been good. Opponents have a .252 batting average against the Twins, which is 14th in the league. Their 4.15 ERA is ninth, while their 55 quality starts are seventh in the league.

In his last start, Perez gave up 11 hits and seven runs in six innings, leading to an 11-7 loss to the Atlanta Braves. The team will need him to bounce back from the poor start with a strong performance on Tuesday.

Brewers Trying To Stay In NL Central Title Race

The Brewers have played well recently and have won five of their last six games. Their recent run has allowed them to stay within 2.5 games of the division-leading Chicago Cubs and they will be trying to cut into Chicago’s lead with a win over the Twins, which will give them their sixth win in their last seven contests.

Milwaukee is an average offensive team. The team’s .247 batting average is 19th in the league. Their .326 on-base percentage is 11th, while their .440 slugging percentage is 11th in the league.

Christian Yelich continues to be the difference-maker for the Brewers, leading the team with a .335 batting average, 39 homers, and 84 RBI.

Milwaukee’s pitching has been below average this season. Opponents have a .253 batting average against the Brewers, which is 17th in the league. Their 4.59 ERA is 18th, while their 29 quality starts are 29th in the league.

In his last start, Anderson gave up six hits and two earned runs in 5.2 innings, helping the Brewers get a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The team will need a similar performance from him to get the win on Tuesday.
