The Twins and the Brewers traded tallies early with run-scoring outs in the first and second innings respectively. Manny Pina drove in his first run of the season for the Brewers with an RBI single. The Twins would score five unanswered runs, including a Mitch Garver homer in the fifth and a two-run shot for Miguel Sano in the sixth. The Brewers would score their final run of the day in the bottom of the sixth on Jackie Bradley Jr.'s first home run on his new team. The Twins would tack on two insurance runs in the top of the eighth inning. Adrian Houser was the losing pitcher for the Brewers, giving up two runs in five innings of work.
