Twins Vs. Brewers Starting Lineups: Recent Call-Up Ben Revere To Start Again, Bat Second

Looking to rack up their fifth consecutive victory, the Minnesota Twins will try to get the best of Milwaukee starter Zach Greinke in Sunday's series finale at Miller Park.

Now up to 14-26 for the season, the Twins have poured on 31 runs over their current four-game streak, and finally look to be coming out of the massive hole they dug for themselves to kick off the season. To oppose Greinke, Minnesota will send veteran righty Jason Marquiss to the hill. Marquis has not won a game since April 29, and has hovered in the mid-6.00 ERA range for virtually the entire year.

Constantly looking to tweak things to keep his run production going, manager Ron Gardenhire has opted to keep recently called-up outfielder Ben Revere in the No. 2 hole ahead of the deadly Mauer-Willingham-Morneau trio. Revere is 4-for-10 from the plate with a pair of steals in three games since his call-up, and adds even more speed to the top of a Minnesota lineup with Denard Span holding down the leadoff spot.

Here are the lineups for Sunday's game:

Twins
1. Denard Span - CF
2. Ben Revere - RF
3. Joe Mauer - C
4. Josh Willingham - LF
5. Justin Morneau - 1B
6. Brian Dozier - SS
7. Trevor Plouffe - 3B
8. Jamey Carroll - 2B
9. Jason Marquis - SP

Brewers
1. Corey Hart - RF
2. Nyjer Morgan - CF
3. Ryan Braun - LF
4. Jonathan Lucroy - C
5. Taylor Green - 3B
6. Travis Ishikawa - 1B
7. Cesar Izturis - SS
8. Edwin Maysonet - 2B
9. Zach Greinke - SP
