Free MLB Pick
Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse has lost 3 straight starts and is 0-5 with a 7.59 ERA in his last 6 outings. That is not good for a Brewers’ team that has the fewest home wins in the Majors and is averaging a paltry 2.3 runs per game in their last 7 home games. He already faced the Twins this season and in that game in Minnesota the Brewers won 10-5, but he did not get a decision after giving up 5 runs in 6 innings. In his career facing the Twins Lohse is 0-1 with an ERA of 9.28. Trevor May has only given up a combined 5 earned runs in 4 June starts, but the offense has not helped him out and in his last 3 outings Minnesota has lost every time. In his last 4 starts he is only 1-2, but has a solid ERA of 1.88.
Lohse will struggle against the Twins again and May will finally get some help on offense, which why the Twins win take the first game of this interleague series.
