The Nate Orf Era begins!

If I had been told that Brad Miller and Nate Orf were to be the Brewers' (48-35) double play combination as they started the second half at the start of the season, I would have been convinced that they had under performed and were searching for answers. But they are in first place, although things do feel a bit desperate with a slew of injuries besetting the team.

Anyways, the Twins (35-45) come to Miller Park slipping out of contention in the dichotomous American League, but always ready to play Milwaukee tough. They send out Kyle Gibson (2-6, 3.48) and he will face the Crew's Brent Suter (8-5. 4.28).
