Byron Buxton kicked got the game started with a bang, a solo shot to left-center for his 24th HR of the season. The Twins had a decent scoring chance in the 1st, but Kyle Garlick was doubled off at 2nd base on a fly out, ending the threat.
The Brewers teed off on Dylan Bundy in the 2nd, surging to a 4-1 lead. Hunter Renfroe did the bulk of the damage, smashing a 3-run HR to left, after a couple of singles. Christian Yelich also contributed an RBI double in the inning.
Jose Miranda got the Twins within striking distance with a 2-out, 2-run double in the 3rd, making it a 4-3 game. Luis Urias hit a solo shot to left to make it a 5-3 game, though, in the bottom half.
The Twins briefly pulled ahead in the 5th, thanks to Gio Urshela’s 2-out 3-run blast to center, putting the Twins in front 6-5. Kolten Wong answered that with a solo shot, tying the game at 6 in the bottom of the 5th.
Jhoan Duran walked two batters in the bottom of the 8th but was eventually able to escape a bases-loaded situation, striking out Willy Adames, looking.

In the 9th, Tyler Duffey was tasked with holding down the Brew Crew, but found himself in a bases-loaded (1 out) jam after a single and a pair of walks. Urias hit a deep fly ball to right field, scoring Andrew McCutchen from 3rd to walk off the game.
That is Tyler Duffey's sixth game of the season with a Win Probability Added of -20% or worse.— Aaron Gleeman (@AaronGleeman) July 27, 2022
Duffey and Emilio Pagán are now tied for the #MNTwins lead in such games, and they're both one off the AL high of seven.
No other Twins reliever has more than three games of -20% WPA.
