Series Preview: Twins (32-35) @ Brewers (35-31)

The Brewers start their second leg of interleague play with a 9-game homestand, starting with three games against former AL rival Minnesota. The Brewers are 0-3 in interleague play in ’08.
Pitching Probables:
Friday, 6/13, 7:05 p.m. CT: RHP Kevin Slowey (2-6, 5.15) vs. RHP Dave Bush (2-6, 5.85)
Saturday, 6/14, 6:05 p.m. CT: LHP Glen Perkins (2-2, 4.58) vs. RHP Jeff Suppan (4-4, 3.78)
Sunday, 6/15, 1:05 p.m. CT: RHP Scott Baker (2-1, 3.60) vs. RHP Seth McClung (3-3, 4.07)
Things to look for:
1. The Brewers tagged Slowey in ’07 for 4 ER’s in 5 1/3rd IP…can the Brewers do it again?
2. The Brewers have never faced Perkins…can they figure him out early on?
3. Since 2005, Baker is 2-1 against the Brewers…but has a 6.00 ERA and 5 HR’s allowed over 18 IP, with 8 ER’s over 13 IP last year…can the Crew replicate this success?
4. McClung is 0-1, 5.14 vs. the Twins over the last three years, but only 7 IP…can McClung continue his run?
5. How will the Twins fare without having Johan Santana and Torii Hunter on hand?
