The Minnesota Twins look to respond from their 5-3 series opening loss the to Milwaukee Brewers when the two teams resume action Saturday at Target Field. It will also be a chance for the Twins to better their abysmal home record of 12-21 against a Brewers team that it isn't exactly dominate on the road (13-18).
What's going to be fun to play close attention to will Trevor Plouffe, who hit a pair of home runs on Friday in the Twins' losing effort. Plouffe was also celebrating his 26th brithday. But Saturday is an opportunity for him to become the first Twins player in the last 17 years to hit a home run in five straight games.
Brewers pitcher Michael Fiers (1-2, 4.50 ERA), who just happened to be celebrating his 27th birthday at the same time Plouffe was sending balls out of the park on Friday, will be tasked with limiting Plouffe and the Minnesota batting lineup.
Liam Hendriks (0-2, 9.00 ERA) will get the start for the Twins. Take a look at the game schedule and broadcast information below.
