Interleauge action continues as the Brewers and Twins meet on Friday.
Minnesota has relinquished its two-year AL Central grip and trail the division lead by 17 games.
Milwaukee continues its strong play and leads the NL Central by 9.5 games.
Even with former MVP Christian Yelich struggling, the Brewers keep winning games. The Brew Crew has won four straight and eight of ten. That success has Milwaukee poised for its fourth playoff trip in as many seasons as the Brewers downed Cincinnati 4-1 Wednesday.
Unlike previous Brewers clubs, the 2021 version offers well-rounded play. Milwaukee averages 4.70 runs to buoy its defense which allows just 3.72 runs.
Lefty Eric Lauer brings his 4-4 record & 3.59 ERA to the mound Friday vs. Minnesota. Milwaukee has won Lauer’s past four appearances while spotting excellent run support as their veteran has dealt a 2.76 ERA in those 16.1 innings.
Lauer faces a credible lineup tonight, though run support shouldn’t be an issue.
After making what appeared like one final attempt to remain playoff-relevant, Minnesota has dropped four of five and resumes its disappointing season. The Twins did upset Boston 9-6 Wednesday, but with five weeks remaining in the regular year, Minnesota is already eyeing 2022.
Overall, the Twins allow 5.36 runs to offset a decent 4.65 runs for. The crux of Minnesota’s defense is pitching: the Twins’ 5.00 staff ERA ranks #29 MLB while their 4.79 bullpen ERA ranks #26.
Baseball vagabond Andrew Albers gets the Minnesota start today in what resembles a bullpen contest. Albers’ best 2021 work comes from AAA St. Paul where the lefty claims a 6-4 mark. At the big leauge level this season 35-year-old Albers tossed four Aug. 17 innings vs. NYY and allowed one run while recording four strikeouts.
Minnesota dropped their Aug. 17 encounter with New York, but Albers threw well and earned another MLB look.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
Marginal starting pitchers square off against offenses ranked in MLB’s upper half in this cross-league encounter. That factor leans toward an over 9 run total. The Brewers bullpen is solid, however, and will make the difference as Milwaukee opens its Target Field visit with a win.
