The Minnesota Twins will look to right the ship after falling to the Milwaukee Brewers for the second straight game on Saturday, fourth overall. The Brewers put six runs on the board to the Twins' two, led by a pair of solo home runs by Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez.
Nick Blackburn will be the next pitcher the Twins trot out to try to halt their skid and the fact that Blackburn is a ground-ball pitcher should bode well against a power lineup like the Brewers.
Here's what Blackburn said on MLB.com about the game.
"I'm going to give up a lot of hits that are ground-ball hits," Blackburn said. "All I can hope for is they hit it at somebody. Obviously not going to happen every time. So that's definitely a positive that I'm still getting the ground balls and showing that I have good movement."
Blackburn will face the Brewers' top gun this season in Zack Greinke, who is 7-2 with a 2.96 ERA this season. The last time Greinke faced Minnesota he only allowed one run on five hits in 6 2/3 innings in a 16-4 win for the Brewers.
