Looking to maintain their lead atop the National League Central Division, the Milwaukee Brewers send 11-game winner Kyle Lohse to the mound when they open a three-game interleague series at the resurgent Tampa Bay Rays on Monday in the opener of a three-game set. Lohse has reached double-digit victories for four consecutive seasons, a span in which the veteran right-hander is 52-25. Milwaukee, which holds a two-game lead over St. Louis, is 29-21 away from home.The red-hot Rays had their nine-game winning streak snapped in a 3-2 home loss to Boston on Sunday, but the current hot spell has them within 4 1/2 games of the second wild card in the American League. Tampa Bay has received stellar pitching during its 9-1 tear, allowing only one opponent to score more than three runs. Rookie right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who has lost only once in his last seven starts, will oppose Lohse as he seeks to win his third straight start.TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, FSN Wisconsin (Milwaukee), Sun Sports (Tampa Bay)PITCHING MATCHUP: Brewers RH Kyle Lohse (11-4, 3.07 ERA) vs. Rays RH Jake Odorizzi (6-8, 3.97)Lohse bounced back from back-to-back defeats by winning his last two starts, allowing one run in each to match his win total from 2013.
