Rowdy Tellez is proving to be a perfect fit for the Milwaukee Brewers, who aim for a sweep of their three-game series against the visiting Chicago White Sox on Sunday night.

Tellez hit his first two homers for his new team in Saturday's 6-1 victory, and he finished with three hits and three RBIs.

The 26-year-old power hitter was acquired from Toronto on July 6. He has started the past two games at first base for the Brewers, who recorded their 4,000th win in franchise history on Saturday.

Tellez has provided a welcome spark at first base while making a case for more playing time ahead of Keston Hiura, who is 4-for-25 with 15 strikeouts over his past 10 games.

"I'm seeing the ball well, I'm feeling good and able to lay off tough pitches and get pitches in the zone that I can handle," Tellez said. "This is a great ballpark to hit in."

Tyrone Taylor has homered in each of the past two games for the Brewers, who have outscored Chicago 13-2 in the first two games of this matchup between division leaders.

Milwaukee will turn to another ace on Sunday in Brandon Woodruff (7-4, 2.04 ERA), who is pitching on an extra day's rest.

The Brewers have gone to a six-man rotation to keep their star trio of Woodruff, Corbin Burnes and Freddy Peralta healthy for the stretch run.

"I think this is a scenario that benefits their health," Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. "We think it benefits their performance, ultimately. And we think it prepares them for something that they didn't do last year, and hopefully prepares them for something -- pitching seven months -- that a lot of them haven't done in their careers. That's the thought behind it."

Woodruff received a no-decision on July 17 after allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits over 5 2/3 innings against Cincinnati.

The 28-year-old right-hander has recorded 14 quality starts this season with 137 strikeouts in 119 innings.

Woodruff made his only previous start against the White Sox on Aug. 4, 2020, when he gave up two runs over six innings in a no-decision at Chicago.

The White Sox will turn to right-hander Lance Lynn (9-3, 1.94), who lowered his American League-leading ERA with another strong outing last Monday.

Lynn, 34, received a no-decision after allowing one run on five hits in seven innings against Minnesota.

Avisail Garcia is 2-for-17 with nine strikeouts against Lynn, who is 10-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 20 career games (16 starts) vs. the Brewers.

Chicago holds a commanding nine-game lead in the AL Central and could have several injured players return to the lineup before long.

Catcher Yasmani Grandal (left-knee tendon) expects to return next month, while outfielders Eloy Jimenez (pectoral muscle) and Luis Robert (hip flexor muscle) have begun their rehab assignments.

While the White Sox await their return, outfielder Andrew Vaughn continues to impress.

The 23-year-old rookie had two hits Saturday and is batting .356 (26-for-73) with five homers and 12 RBIs over his past 21 games.

Chicago White Sox vs. Milwaukee Brewers

Eloy Jimenez smacked a two-run home run among his three hits and Lucas Giolito pitched six strong innings to boost the visiting Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday for their sixth straight win.

Jose Abreu snapped a 2-all tie with a two-out RBI single in the seventh for Chicago, which completed a 6-2 road trip by out-hitting Milwaukee 10-7.

Giolito improved to 1-1 after scattering two runs and four hits with three walks and nine strikeouts. Alex Colome worked around a pair of two-out hits in the ninth to notch his third save.

Eric Sogard went 2-for-4 for the Brewers, while opposing leadoff hitter Luis Robert added two hits for Chicago.

Milwaukee right-hander Brandon Woodruff took a no-decision after spacing two runs and eight hits in six innings with one walk and six strikeouts. Devin Williams (0-1) was the loser, allowing one run on one hit in an inning of relief with one walk and three strikeouts.

Giolito limited the Brewers to Sogard's double leading off the game through the first four innings before encountering trouble in the fifth. Logan Morrison opened the inning with a double and scored two batters later on Ben Gamel's two-run home run to right field.

The White Sox tied the game in the next half-inning, as Jimenez drilled a two-run home run to center against Woodruff.

Chicago second baseman Nick Madrigal left the game in the top of the third after appearing to jam his left shoulder while sliding feet-first into third base, trying to advance on a Robert single.

White Sox trainers checked Edwin Encarnacion's left shoulder following an infield single in the fourth. The designated hitter later was taken to the dugout and temporarily remained in the game before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth.

Both Madrigal and Encarnacion will undergo further evaluation Wednesday, the White Sox announced.
