    After a series win against the Rockies, the Brewers looked to stay hot against their northern neighbors the Minnesota Twins.

    Game 1 Brewers 7 – Twins 6


    Twins 6, Brewers 7 (Final Score) on MLB Gameday

    It’s a Walk-Off

    In game one of a short two game series, the Brewers were not so “Minnesota nice” to their northern neighbors. Ethan Small, up from AAA to fill a temporary hole in the rotation, got off to a rocky start when Twins centerfielder Byron Buxton cranked a solo homer to lead off the game. The Brewers roared back in the second with four runs, three of which came on white hot Hunter Renfroe’s three run jack.


    Small gave up another two runs in the third on a couple of doubles sandwiched around a walk. Control continues to be Small’s bugaboo as he allowed four free passes in only three and two thirds innings. The boys in the bigs don’t chase quite as much as they do down on the farm.

    The Brewers tacked on another run in the third on a Luis Urias solo home run giving them a brief two run lead.

    Trevor Gott couldn’t hold the slim margin though, allowing a three-run homer to Gio Urshela in the fifth. The Brewers were able to tie it in the bottom of the inning on a Kolten Wong home run.

    The score remained tied until the bottom of ninth. The Brewers loaded the bases on a single and two walks. Luis Urias lifted a fly ball down the right field long that was plenty deep to score Andrew McCutchen giving The Crew the win.



    Game 2 Brewers 10 – Twins 4

    Rowdy’s Rampage

    The Brewers came out of the gate firing in this one. Before an out had been recorded, the Brewers had put a three spot up on the scoreboard thanks to a Rowdy Tellez blast to centerfield. Chris Archer was not amused. Brent Suter was amused.


    Corbin Burnes had one rough inning but was otherwise stellar as usual. He gave up three runs in the top of the second on a Jose Miranda homer, a couple of doubles, and a single. Burnes settled down and allowed only one hit through six innings while recording 11 strikeouts against zero walks. The Twins showed proper respect by bending the knee to Corbin in the fifth.


    He had all the help he needed from Tellez who cranked his second three run homer of the day in the bottom of the fifth. A laser beam shot to right given Rowdy 20 home runs on the year.


    The Crew added two runs in the bottom of the fifth on Luis Urias’ second home run in as many days. The bullpen held and the Brewers won giving them the two-game sweep and their fifth win in their last six.


    Up Next

    The Brewers travel to Beantown to take on the Boston Red Sox for some sweet interleague action starting Friday evening.
