Brewers rely on longball in win over Twins
by WDJT Sports


MINNEAPOLIS - Carlos Gomez, Khris Davis and Jonathan Lucroy homered Thursday night to power the Brewers to an 8-5 win over the Twins.

Gomez's home run came shortly after an Oswaldo Arcia grand slam put the Twins up 4-0. Gomez responded with a three-run blast of his own, and a few innings later, a two-run homer from Khris Davis gave the Brewers the lead.

Jonathan Lucroy added two runs of insurance with a ninth inning blast. Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for the save as the Brewers earned a split in the four-game series with the Twins.
