Welcome to the other Brewers rivalry. The Twins stay hot after yesterday's shellacking of the White Sox, and pin the Brewers 11-3. Not only did the Brewers show no enthusiasm, Michael Cuddyer was able to hit for the cycle against the Crew with a broken bat triple.
Manny Parra struggled mightily after giving the Crew five straight quality starts, by giving up 8 earned runs in 3 1/3 innings of work. With tonight's outing Parra's ERA rose to 5.79. Even the budding confidence of Parra, will this loss curb his confidence?
In more injury news, JJ Hardy left the game in the bottom of the fourth with back spasms.
The Twins are now 5-2 against the Brewers in interleague play in the last two years.
And when are the Brewers just going to start Mat Gamel every day? This situation seems to remind me of Braun's scenario. Well guess what, Braun produced way more runs, than he gave up....time to start Gamel!
Tomorrow night it will be Braden Looper pitching against Anthony Swarzak, making his first appearance.
