Twins score late, top Brewers in finale
Aguilar HR provides Brewers lone run
May 20, 2018 — Minneapolis (AP) -Logan Morrison hit a two-run double to give the Minnesota Twins’ offense a much-needed lift, and four relievers worked 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
Morrison’s liner hit high off the right-field wall with one out and the bases loaded in the eighth against reliever Boone Logan. Minnesota was 3 for 18 with runners in scoring position in the series before Morrison’s double.
The Twins salvaged the final game of the series, snapping a three-game skid with an injury-decimated starting lineup.
Taylor Williams (0-2) walked Brian Dozier to lead off the eighth. Logan entered and walked Max Kepler. Eddie Rosario was out on a swinging bunt that moved the runners to second and third. Eduardo Escobar was intentionally walked in front of Morrison.
Jesus Aguilar homered in the sixth off Jake Odorizzi, who allowed one run five hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out 10. Taylor Rodgers came on with runners at first and third and got out of the jam by striking out pinch-hitter Domingo Santana. Rodgers got the first out in the seventh and Ryan Pressly finished the inning.
Junior Guerra threw 91 pitches in 4 1/3 innings for Milwaukee, allowing one run on four hits.
