After being shutdown by Jacob deGrom on Thursday afternoon, the Milwaukee Brewers’ offense responded in a big way to beat the Minnesota Twins 10-4 Friday night. Kyle Lohse surrendered a leadoff home run to start the game, but that was the biggest hope for the Twins as the Brewers’ offense knocked out Twins starter, Trevor May after just a third of an inning. Here is a look at the highlights from tonight’s game.

Contributions From Everyone
In tonight’s game not only did every Brewers’ position player have a hit, but four had multi-hit games. Just as the Twins got a home run from Brian Dozier to lead off the game, Gerardo Parra answered with one of his own in the bottom of the first. The Brewers also had home runs from Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett (his second in three games) in the second inning as they welcomed Alex Meyer to the major leagues. All told the Brewers mustered 10-hits on the night. Ramirez also was able to move into third all-time in RBIs from a third baseman.
Adam Lind Gets Hit #1,000
While Lind didn’t homer in the game, he was able to go two for four, including his 1,000th career hit. After years of trouble at the position, Lind has finally provided the team with some consistency at first base.
It has been a rarity this season, but Kyle Lohse was able to earn his fourth win of the season. He did surrender all four runs, including two homers and was only able to last six innings, but it was good to finally get a win on his turn in the rotation. With this victory he also was able to now have a victory over every team in the major leagues.
Bullpen Continues to Succeed
With a six run lead the bullpen didn’t budge to close it out. Through the final three innings, Brewers relievers surrendered only one hit. Though he has been hit hard all year, Jonathan Broxton closed out the ninth in 1-2-3 fashion to secure the Brewers’ win.
What is Ahead:
Tomorrow the Brewers and Twins will square off in game two of the three game series. Matt Garza 4-9 5.48 will take on Kyle Gibson 4-6 3.35. Both starts have struggled as of late as Gibson has seen his ERA rise nearly a point while Garza allowed seven earned against the Colorado Rockies in his last outing. Gibson was hit hard last time against Milwaukee, while Garza was able to turn in on of his best outings of the year (seven innings, one earned run) last time he faced the Twins. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 CT.
