Brewers need to shut down Twins' hot bats

Left-hander Gio Gonzalez takes the mound for Milwaukee and will try to cool down the hottest team in baseball on Monday night when the Brewers open a two-game series against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis.

Gonzalez (2-1, 2.39 ERA), who has allowed just one home run in five starts this season, is 3-3 with a 6.43 ERA in eight career starts against the Twins but is 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA in two starts at Target Field. He'll be opposed by right-hander Michael Pineda (4-3, 5.43), who will be making his first career start against the Brewers.

Minnesota enters the contest with the best record in baseball (36-16) and leading the major leagues in virtually every key offensive category. The Twins lead MLB in average (.273), home runs (104), slugging percentage (.520), OPS (.863), runs scored (315) and run differential (plus-111).
