Brewers lose back and forth game against interleague rival

Marwin Gonzalez's three-run homer in the eighth inning off of Josh Hader prevented the Brewers from gaining a game in the division on Tuesday. Hader was brought in to get out of a jam in the eighth with the Brewers leading 5-4 over the Twins. Gonzalez took the first pitch he saw out of the park to give Minnesota a 7-5 lead. That's how the game would end.

 

In the previous half-inning, the Brewers got their first lead of the game after the Twins had been winning since the third. Christian Yelich knocked home Keston Hiura with a double. Ryan Braun then reached base on a catcher's interference and Yasmani Grandal knocked in everybody with a three-run home run to give Milwaukee a 5-4 lead. The Brewers other run came in the fourth inning when Lorenzo Cain brought in Hernan Perez with a groundout.

 

Milwaukee did not lose any ground in the division as the Cubs fell to the Phillies. They did, however, lose a game to the Cardinals in the Wildcard race as St. Louis was able to win. These two teams will play a matinee starting at 1:10 PM at Miller Park. Gio Gonzalez will be on the mound for the Brewers against Kyle Gibson for the Twins.
