Brewers stop Twins' sweep at Miller Park
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

Geoff Jenkins hit his 200th career homer and drove in five runs, as the Milwaukee Brewers edged Minnesota 6-5 Sunday at Miller Park.

Francisco Cordero had his Major League-leading 17th save in 17 opportunities. That ties him with Dan Kolb and Rollie Fingers for the longest save streak in Brewer history.

Milwaukee came back from a 2-0deficit as Jenkins hit a three-run blast to tie the game. He then won it in the seventh with his second RBI single of the day.

J.J. Hardy went 2-4 and drove in the other Brewers' run. Michael Cuddyer hit a two-run homer for the Twins, who have now lost four of six.

Matt Wise pitched a scoreless seventh to get the win and is now 1-1.

Dennys Reyes took the loss, he's now 0-1.

The Brewers' victory was only the second in their last eight and they've lost three straight series.

But they're 10 games above .500, with a 5.5 game lead over Houston in the National League Central.

The Brewers are back on the road and will play the Dodgers in Los Angeles Monday night. Right-hander Jeff Suppan will face Dodgers' righty Brett Tomko.
