MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WHBL) - Kyle Lohse gave up a career-high four home runs Thursday night as the Milwaukee Brewers extended their losing streak to six games with an 8-6 loss at Minnesota. With just one game left this month, the Brewers are assured of tying a team futility record with six wins in May – and that’s if they get a victory tonight at Philadelphia. Lohse, who missed his last start with a sore throwing elbow, said he felt fine physically. He gave up six runs in four-and-two-thirds innings on eight hits and a walk with no strikeouts. The ex-Twin dropped his record to 1-6. It’s been a week since the Brewers led in any game – 59 straight innings - to be exact. Chris Parmelee gave the Twins the lead for good with a solo homer in the third. In the fourth, Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer hit back-to-back shots. Three batters later, Ryan Doumit hit a two-run blast. Milwaukee did not score until the sixth, when Logan Schafer hit a three-run triple. That was the Crew’s biggest hit of the night, as each team pounded out 12 hits. Schafer went 3 for 4, starting in right field to give Norichika Aoki a rest. P-J Walters gave up four runs in six innings for the win. Jared Burton got his second save. The Crew wore 1948 throwback uniforms as they were swept by the Twins in their four-game series. Milwaukee gave up 10 homers in those games – and manager Ron Roenicke said it was the toughest thing to stomach. Yovani Gallardo will start for the Brewers tonight in Philly against left-hander Cole Hamels. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 5:30.
