Twins look to Maeda to turn tide vs. Brewers

The Minnesota Twins will turn to right-hander Kenta Maeda to try win the rubber game of their three-game series at Milwaukee on Wednesday night and end what has been a disappointing road trip on a high note.

The Twins were 9-2 when they departed Minneapolis for the eight-game trip that began with a 5-2 victory at Pittsburgh. But the Twins have dropped five of six games since then, including a 6-4 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday night when Jedd Gyorko hit a two-run homer off reliever Taylor Rogers in the bottom of the eighth to complete the Brewers' comeback from an early 4-1 deficit.

Despite the recent rough stretch that included getting swept in three games at Kansas City, the Twins still lead the American League Central Division by a half-game over the Detroit Tigers.
