The fans at Target Field will be treated to a interleague game between the Colorado Rockies and the Minnesota Twins when they take their seats on Tuesday.

The Rockies will trot Kyle Freeland out to the mound in this one. Left hander Freeland has a 3-2 record and a 2.92 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Twins will be Phil Hughes. The right hander has a 4.74 ERA to go along with a 4-1 record this season.

Freeland owned a 2-0 mark and allowed three runs and 19 hits over a four-start stretch before last Tuesday when he sustained his first loss since his second outing of the season. The 24-year-old rookie permitted five runs (three earned) and four hits – all in a second inning that also featured two errors by his team – in an 8-1 setback to the Chicago Cubs last time out. Freeland, who also matched a season-high four walks over his six-inning performance, will pitch at an AL park for the first time in his career.

Hughes got out of the blocks with a flourish to begin both this season and his last start, although things unraveled quickly in Thursday’s outing against the Chicago White Sox. The 30-year-old surrendered his first hit with one out in the fourth inning and yielded a three-run homer to Melky Cabrera in the fifth before receiving his second consecutive no-decision. Hughes, who permitted five runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings, allowed four earned runs for the fourth time in his last six starts – with six homers given up in that stretch.

Oddsmakers currently have the Twins listed as 115-moneyline favorites versus the Rockies, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

DJ LeMahieu hopes his torrid stretch at the plate travels well as the Colorado Rockies begin a season-high 10-game road trip on Tuesday with the opener of a three-game interleague series against the Minnesota Twins. The defending National League batting champion recorded back-to-back three-hit performances over the weekend and his third in the team’s 10-game homestand, during which he went 15-for-41 to raise his average to a season-best .295.

The 28-year-old LeMahieu’s 17th multi-hit performance of the season in Sunday’s 9-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers helped Colorado salvage a split of a four-game series and finish the homestand with a 6-4 mark. The NL West-leading Rockies begin a stretch of 22 of their next 29 contests on the road in Minnesota, which opens a six-game homestand on the heels of winning four of five versus American League Central foes on a rain-shortened road trip. Kennys Vargas increased his RBI total seven in his last five games with a two-run double in Sunday’s 8-3 setback to Cleveland. The 26-year-old has a team-best 13 RBIs since being recalled from Triple-A Rochester on April 23.

In their last action, Minnesota was a 8-3 loser on the road against the Indians. Bettors on Cleveland at -163 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (11) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Colorado was a 9-6 winner in its last match on the road against the Dodgers. They won as +124 underdogs, while the total score of 15 made winners of OVER bettors.
