MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WHBL) - Milwaukee Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke says losing is getting old. His team dropped to 5-21 in May after losing at Minnesota Wednesday night 4-1. It was Milwaukee’s fifth straight loss – and it’s been 50 innings since the Brewers have had any lead during a game. Last night, the Twins scored all they needed in the first inning, when Marco Estrada gave up three runs on five hits. Ryan Doumit’s two-run double was the big hit in that frame. Milwaukee’s only run came in the second. Carlos Gomez doubled and later scored on a groundout by Yuniesky Betancourt. Twins’ right-hander Samuel Deduno pitched into the eighth inning, and the win evened his record at 1-1 in his only two starts this year. Despite giving up just four hits, Deduno did not exactly look like a Cy Young winner as he hit three batters, walked a pair, and committed a balk – but even with all that, the Brewers’ offense could not take advantage. Gomez doubled and singled as the Crew managed just five hits. Aaron Hicks homered for the Twins, who are now 3-0 against Milwaukee in their home-and-home four-game Interleague series. Glen Perkins pitched the ninth to earn his 11th save. Estrada went seven innings, giving up four runs on seven hits with five strikeouts as his record dropped to 4-3. The Brewers and Twins will close out their series tonight at Target Field. Ex-Twins’ right-hander Kyle Lohse faces right-hander P-J Walters. Pregame coverage on WHBL starts at 6:35.
