The Twins begin a five-game swing through National League parks as they face the Brewers and Nationals. The Twins are 21-22 all-time at Miller Park, going 1-2 there last year. … Manager Paul Molitor said he plans to play Byung Ho Park at first base a couple times during the road trip, meaning Joe Mauer will start the game on the bench those days. Park has three home runs over his past four games, including Tuesday, when he started at first.
Both Nelson and Jungmann will face the Twins for the first time in their careers. … Aaron Hill was 3-for-19 on the Brewers’ just-completed road trip but comes home to face Nolasco, whom he’s batting .353 against in his career. … Scooter Gennett and Ryan Braun combined to go 8-for-14 in the two games at Target Field, with four doubles, six runs and four RBI. … The Brewers shift their infield defensive extensively, putting three players on one side of the infield against most Twins hitters.
