Twins Vs. Brewers: Minnesota Tries For Weekend Sweep Against Milwaukee

The Minnesota Twins (14-26) look to continue their winning ways and complete a sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers (16-24) when the two teams wrap up their weekend interleague series on Sunday at Miller Park. Trevor Plouffe kept the positive momentum rolling for the Twins with his 11th-inning home run on Saturday that pushed Minnesota to a 5-4 win.

Completing the sweep won't be easy for the Twins as Milwaukee turns the ball over to their ace Zack Greinke to close out the series. Greinke is 4-1 with a 2.88 ERA and 53 strikeouts in eight starts so far this season and riding a 15-inning scoreless streak into the game. The tough right-handers also hasn't lost at Miller Park in 21 starts.

Minnesota will throw veteran right-hander Jason Marquis at the Brewers. Marquis is just 2-3 with a 6.68 ERA in his six starts so far this season.

The game is scheduled to start at 1:10 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports North.
