The Minnesota Twins are in Milwaukee this week for a pair of games against the Brewers. The Twins are a half game back of the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central division, while the Brewers are a half-game back of the second Wild Card spot in the National League.
How To Watch Twins vs Brewers
First pitch in Milwaukee is set for 8:10 pm EST and can be viewed regionally on FOX Sports Wisconsin and FOX Sports North. Streaming is available on MLB.TV and the Reddit MLB Streams subreddit.
Christian Yelich returns to the Brewers lineup after missing five straight starts with a back injury. The reigning MVP is tearing up the league again this season, hitting a MLB-leading .335 with a .427 OBP, 39 home runs and 84 RBIs. There's a chance Yelich goes back-to-back for NL MVPs, but the first step to that is getting back in the lineup. Yelich hits third Tuesday against the Twins.
Chase Anderson takes the mound for Milwaukee sporting a 5-2 record and 3.70 ERA. The right-handed starter will look to continue his streak of allowing 2 or fewer runs in nine straight starts.
The Twins have lost five of their last six games and the lead in the AL Central division. The team needs its stars to step up in a big way this series. Jorge Polanco is hitting .295 this season and needs to bounce back after going 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in a 7-3 loss to the division leading Indians. He returns to shortstop and hits third for Minnesota.
Martin Perez starts for the Twins hoping to slow down the team's slide in the division. The lefty is 8-5 with a 4.80 ERA this season for Minnesota.
