Twins 6, Brewers 4: Sweet baby blue jerseys beat neat retro Brewers jerseys

"Check out our jerseys." - Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The sweet blue jerseys were real cool, especially on Josh Willingham.

Josh Willingham continued his hot return to the majors last night, hitting his fourth home run in the last six days to propel the Twins to a 6-4 win over the Brewers on sweet retro jersey night.

Willingham's three-run shot game in the top of the third wasn't the only fun the Twins had, however. Two innings later, hot-hitting Rubix Cube solver Brian Dozier hit his own two-run blast off Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo to bring the score to 6-2. The two home-runs, in addition to an RBI line-drive by Josmil Pinto in the top of the second, were all the runs the Twins would end up needing for the win.

Twins starting pitcher Samuel Deduno was rather serviceable, going five innings while surrendering two earned runs on six hits and four walks. Since it's the national league, Deduno also hit, going 0-2 with two strikeouts at the plate, but at least he tried, and why do they make pitchers try to hit anyway? Geez Louise.

Matt "The Band: It's Getting Back Together" Guerrier and Jared Burton both pitched scoreless innings in relief, followed by Casey Fien and Glen Perkins, who both pitched not-scoreless innings, each giving up a run. Despite this, Perkins still got the save, his 15th of the year, and the Twins won.

P.S. - The Twins and Brewers will be wearing the same sweet retro jerseys at Target Field Thursday night.
