On Saturday, the Milwaukee Brewers (26-18, 1st NL Central) play the second game of a three-game series on the road against the Minnesota Twins (18-21, 2nd AL Central).

The Brewers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday 8-2, as they won two of three from the front runners in the NL West. Travis Shaw, Christian Yelich, Tyler Saladino and Domingo Santana all hit home runs for the Brewers off Arizona starter Matt Koch. Milwaukee was off Thursday. Minnesota lost its last game on Wednesday to the St. Louis Cardinals 7-5. The Twins starter Lance Lynn was beaten by his former teammates. Minnesota has now lost three of its last four. Minnesota was also idle on Thursday. Ryan Braun was put on Milwaukee’s disabled list with a sore back. Christian Yelich leads Brewers with a .294 batting average. Travis Shaw is the team leader in home runs with 10 and RBIs with 26. Milwaukee has a team batting average of .242, while opposing hitters are averaging .228 at the plate against Brewers pitching. On Saturday the Brewers will send Freddy Peralta to the mound. The right-hander this season is 1-0 with an ERA of 0.00, 13 Ks and 2 BBs.

Eddie Rosario leads Minnesota with a .296 batting average and team highs in hits with 45, in home runs with nine and in RBIs with 27.

The UNDER has cashed in 13 of the Brewers last 21 interleague games and in 14 of their last 22 on grass. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota Twins win 4-2.
