Twins Roughed Up By Brew Crew
MILWAUKEE, WI -- Two young pitchers had rough outings as the Milwaukee Brewers scored 10 runs in the first two innings en route to a decisive 10-4 loss for the Minnesota Twins.
Brian Dozier led off the game with his 15th home run of the season to give the Twins a 1-0 lead, but starter Trevor May only recorded one out while allowing six runs (five earned) on six hits in the first inning,
Highly touted pitching prospect Alex Meyer then made his major league debut for the Twins in relief of May but his first outing did not go well, as he allowed four more runs in only 1 2/3 innings.
The 10-1 deficit was too much for the Twins to come back from. An RBI fielder's choice by Eddie Rosario and a two-run home run by Trevor Plouffe accounted for the Twins' four runs.
With the loss, the Twins fall to 39-34 on the season. The series in Milwaukee continues today at 1:10 p.m. with Kyle Gibson (4-6) taking the mound for the Twins against Matt Garza (4-9).
