Brewers End Losing Streak With Twins Help


Sometimes you need a little help to win some baseball games and the Brewers got that in the form of two costly errors from the Minnesota Twins.  Jason Kendall two out double tied the score in the eight inning, but his hustling effort also lead to costly Twins errors to give the Brewers a 4-3 win. Kendall double was fielded by Twins outfielder Brendan Harris relay to the plate skipped passed Twins catcher Joe Maurer. Kendall went to third and Twins pitcher Nick Blackburn threw the ball from home plate to third where the ball got away from Joe Crede letting Kendall score the winning run. Sometimes it pays to be lucky than good.

Braden Looper started for the Brewers and he went six innings and gave up three runs, which is really not bad. Todd Coffey got the win for the Brewers in relief.  The bullpen shut the Twins out rest of the way and Trevor Hoffman notched his 17th save of the season. This is the kind of game the Brewers needed to win. We got just enough offense and the bullpen did it’s job. Many times this season it has not worked out this way so it was nice to finally see something good happen to the Brewers.
