BREWERS NOTES:

·    The Brewers lost to the Twins for the fourth straight game, being swept in the season series for the second time in history (other: 1999, 0-2)…the Brewers have now lost a season-high six straight games…it is their longest losing streak since losing seven in a row from July 20-26, 2012…Milwaukee is 4-16 in their last 20 games…the Brewers fall to 40-52 all-time in Interleague play against Minnesota…Milwaukee is now 4-7 all-time at Target Field.

·    Kyle Lohse allowed six runs on eight hits, four home runs and one walk in 4.2 innings…the 4.2 innings are the fewest in a start this season, and fewest since going 3.0 innings on August 23, 2011 vs. Los Angeles-NL…the four home runs allowed tonight are a career-high for Lohse, his previous high was three done 13 times with the last coming on June 16, 2011 at Washington…the loss for Lohse tonight extends his current losing streak to five games (last six starts)…over the five game losing streak he has an ERA of 5.71 (34.2 IP, 22 ER)…the Brewers are 2-8 in his 10 starts this season.

·    Carlos Gomez (1-for-5) singled in the seventh inning…he has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games, hitting .314 (11-for-35) in those nine games.

·    Rickie Weeks (1-for-4) extended his current season-long hitting streak to seven games with a double in the eighth inning…over the six games he is hitting .280 (7-for-25) with two doubles.

·    Jean Segura (1-for-4) led all Brewers with his nine hits against the Twins in the last four games…Segura finished the series hitting .500 (9-for-18)…he has 11 hits and four runs scored in his last five games…Segura has reached base safely in 42 of his 51 games played this season.

·    Logan Schafer (3-for-4) hit his third career triple with the bases loaded in the sixth inning…it was the third triple of his career and the first since September 26, 2012 at Cincinnati…the three RBI tonight set a career mark for Schafer, his previous high being two RBI on September 15, 2012 vs. New York-NL…the three hits tonight for Schafer also set his career-high…it was his first career game with multiple extra base hits…Schafer came into tonight’s game 1-for-last-10 since May 14.

 

TWINS NOTES: ­

·    The Twins defeated the Brewers tonight for their fourth straight win and fifth win in their last six games…with the win Minnesota clinched the season sweep against the Brewers, the first season sweep the Twins have had over the Brewers since 1999 (2-0) and only the second season sweep ever…Minnesota improves to 5-6 against National League opponents this season with eight games remaining…the Twins have gone 11 straight games without a fielding error, tying their season-high, also April 27-May 8…the club’s all-time record is 12 July 22-August 4, 2002…Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning tonight, the first time the Twins have gone back-to-back this season, and the first time since Mauer and Willingham went back-to-back on August 17, 2012 at Seattle…the three home runs the Twins hit in the fourth inning marked the first time with three homers in a single inning since August 6, 2012 at Cleveland when Willingham, Morneau and Doumit all hit homers…with four home runs tonight the Twins tied their all-time record for homers in a single game at Target Field (also four on July 1, 2012 vs. KC).

·    P.J. Walters allowed four runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out four in 6.0 innings tonight…he left with two on in the seventh inning and one came around to score, taking away his quality start…Walters earned his second win in his two starts this season, tying his career-high for consecutive wins (two other times, last on May 17-27, 2012)…the 10 hits allowed tonight are a career-high…he has tossed 6.0 innings in three of his last four starts (since September 23, 2012)…Twins starters have tossed back-to-back outings of at least 6.0 innings for the first time since April 21-23 when Scott Diamond (6.0 IP) and Kevin Correia (7.0 IP) did so.

·    Joe Mauer (2-for-4) hit his fifth home run of the season tonight…he has three home runs in his last six games…Mauer has five home runs in 48 games this season, the most homers thru his first 48 games of the season since having 14 thru in 2009…the homer by Mauer tonight came as the designated hitter, the first homer as a DH since hitting a solo home run on May 24, 2012 at Chicago-AL off Phillip Humber…Mauer leads all Twins with 20 multi-hit games this season.

·    Ryan Doumit (2-for-4) hit his fifth home run of the season with a two-run shot to right-center field off Kyle Lohse…eight of his last 17 hits overall are for extra bases (five home runs, three doubles)…with two RBI tonight Doumit now has four straight multi-RBI games (eight total RBI in those three)…it is the first time in his nine year career to have multiple RBI in four straight games.

·    Chris Parmelee (2-for-4) hit his fifth home run of the season with a solo shot in the third inning…it was his first home run of the season at Target Field, the last coming on June 30, 2012 vs. Kansas City…the five home runs ties his single-season career-high done in 45 games this season…he also five in 64 games in 2012…four of his five homers this season, and 13 of his 14 career homers, have come off right-handed pitchers…tonight was his first multi-RBI game since May 3 (2 RBI).
