Brewers stop Twins' sweep at Miller Park
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.
