TWINS 7, BREWERS 5
Christian Yelich returned to the starting lineup and sparked a late rally, but it wasn’t enough for the Milwaukee as Marwin Gonzalez hit a three-run home run off of Josh Hader to propel Minnesota to a come-from-behind win.
With Milwaukee trailing 4-1 in the seventh inning, Yelich hit an RBI double and scored on Yasmani Grandal’s three-run home run, his 20th of the season. That gave the Brewers a 5-4 lead.
But Gonzalez followed in the eighth with his blast, his 14th, to put the Twins ahead to stay. The victory, couple with Cleveland’s extra inning loss to Boston, pushed Minnesota back into first-place in the AL Central.
It was the fifth blown save for Hader.
Drew Pomeranz (2-10) took the loss.
Tyler Duffy (2-1) picked up the win. Sergio Romo recorded his second save.
