Twins triumph in butter border baseball battle

Twins got off to an early lead, with one out and bases loaded, "Fast" Eddie Rosario hit an RBI single knocking in Jorge Polanco.  A ground-out would bring Mauer home for a 2-0 Twins lead.  It didn't last long as the Brewers hit back-to-back doubles making it 2-1 Twins.

Twins got it back, scoring again on a soft RBI liner to left field hit by Miguel Sano in the top of the third.

Twins managed to load up the bases again in the 5th with no outs. Visions of runs began dancing in Twins fans heads but the record scratched as Escobar struck out on a checked swing and John Ryan "Smurphy" Murphy ground into a double play.

Top of the 7th, Sano Sano'd a solo HR to right center field. Sayonara, baseball! 4-1 Twins.

Byron "Speeding Bullet" Buxton pretty much singlehandedly  scored from a single to left.  Sure, a throwing error by Sam Freeman, and a sac fly by Polanco helped, but Gardy would've been proud of the hustle. To put a cherry on top of that, Dozier hit a 2-out, solo HR to left field.

Twins scored 2 more RBIs by the Eddies in the 9th. Fien closed it out in the bottom half 1-2-3 to end it. 8-1 Twins
