Milwaukee Brewers: 9-7 (3rd in AL East)
Minnesota Twins: 8-13 (7th in AL West)
It’s hard to know what to expect when the Brewers face the Minnesota Twins for the first time tomorrow in their brand new, space aged Metrodome. The Brewers rarely play indoors (other than playing the Mariners in the Kingdome), and it will be their first game under a roof this season.
Beyond figuring out the new surroundings, the normally downtrodden Twins have been reinvigorated with young talent that the Brewers have yet to face. The Twins lineup is littered with young faces that include Jim Eisenreich in centerfield (hitting .297), Kent Hrbek at first base (.305 with eight homers), Gary Gaetti at third base (.250 with four homers) and Ron Washington at shortstop (.387).
These aren’t your typical Twins, who have finished in last place in the American League West last season. It will be important that the Brewers, who have been up and down already this month, not take the Twins lightly.
