For some it’s one of the most exciting contests of the All-Star experience, for others it’s just plain boring. Some of the league’s best sluggers are set to face off in the 2010 MLB Homerun Derby Monday.
The Angels return home after a successful 11-3 road trip and continue interleague play against the visiting Brewers.
Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Angels
Milwaukee continues its 15-game interleague schedule tonight with the first of three games at Los Angeles. The Brewers are 86-104 all-time during interleague play, including 2-4 this season (-180) and 5-10 last season. Tonight’s contest is the Brewers’ first game against the Angels since the team took two of three games in Anaheim in 2004. The club managed to post an even 3-3 record on its recent homestand despite managing just a .125 (6-for-48) batting average with runners in scoring position. One player that has carried the offense is outfielder Corey Hart, hitting 14 home runs in his last 28 games, tops in the majors over that span. The Brewers bullpen has been much better of late, posting a 2.96 ERA over its last eight games.
