The Milwaukee Brewers moved up the start time for Tuesday’s game against the visiting Kansas City Royals to avoid a conflict with Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the host Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns.
“Yes, we want to watch the Bucks game, too,” the team posted Sunday on Twitter.
First pitch at American Family Field was moved from 8:10 p.m. ET to 4:10 p.m. ET.
Tip-off for the basketball game at Fiserv Forum is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET. The Bucks hold a 3-2 series lead and can clinch their first NBA championship since 1971.
Fans with tickets to Tuesday’s Royals-Brewers game who are unable to attend the earlier start time will be offered a refund or a comparable ticket to another game.
