The Minnesota Twins and the Milwaukee Brewers exchanged the lead four times on Wednesday, but the Twins ended up on top with a 6-4 win over the Brewers.

The Twins took the lead in the seventh inning and held on for the victory. The Twins went up for good on an RBI single by Oswaldo Arcia off Will Smith, plating Josh Willingham to give the Minnesota Twins the lead for good.

Arcia racked up four RBIs on two hits for the Twins.

The Twins got the win thanks in large part to Ricky Nolasco's solid, seven-strikeout performance. Nolasco allowed four earned runs, six hits and no walks over seven innings.

Rob Wooten couldn't get it done on the rubber for the Brewers, taking a loss. He lasted just two-thirds of an inning, walked none, struck out none, and allowed one run.

Twins closer Glen Perkins put away the final three outs to record the save.

The Brewers jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the second. After Rickie Weeks doubled, the Milwaukee Brewers kept the pressure on the Twins pitching, as Mark Reynolds doubled, bringing home Weeks.
