Dietrich Enns’ MLB pitching debut started out well enough, getting his outs on groundouts and flyouts in the first two innings. He did give up a solo homer to Keon Broxton in the 2nd, but was okay other than that. In the 3rd, things broke down. He loaded the bases after he made a throwing error and gave up a pair of singles, then walked in a run by Jesus Aguilar. Molitor then brought in the bullpen which shut down the Brewers offense for the night. Enns did manage to get his first major league hit before he has struck out a major league batter.
The Twins offense scored most of their runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings Piranha-style on a collection of singles, sac flies and a Brewers fielding error. Six runs all together. Joe Mauer hit and RBI single in the 7th to make it 7-2, Twins.
