Crew Look to Salvage Series Against Twins

I'm not really old enough to remember how intense the rivalry between the Brewers and the Twins might have used to be, but I'm sure it doesn't take long for those feelings to come back after dropping two in a row in embarrassing fashion. Unfortunately, I am old enough to have friends that are Twins fans, and it didn't take long for them to start sending me text messages cocking off about how awful the Brewers are. Can't we just take these last two losses and move on without having to rub it in our face?

Because it's the day before Memorial Day and I'm apparently going out to a bonfire (lame after 9th grade), here's the Associated Press version of the recap. Enjoy. As for our take, we're going to say that as long as we're in first place, we have nothing to complain about. Also, Prince Fielder is our Player of the Game, going 2-for-3 with an RBI.

The Brewers better shape up though before tonight's game against the Twins, as they are once again back under the spotlight of Sunday Night Baseball. Here's the lineup, courtesy of Tom Haudricourt, whose expertise in bringing up the lineups two hours before anyone else makes him one of the best writers in the entire world.

SS Craig Counsell
2B Casey McGehee
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
CF Mike Cameron
RF Corey Hart
DH Mat Gamel
C Mike Rivera
3B Bill Hall

It's another thin lineup as the Brewers have one less position player on the bench because of the R.J. Swindle call-up, so this is what we're going with. The absence of Weeks is definitely evident, and have fun batting in the nine-hole Billy Hall.

First pitch at 7:05pm.
