Brewers overcome wild pitching night to beat Twins 5-3
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Leadoff hitter Rickie Weeks had a hand in all five Milwaukee runs and the Brewers overcame a club-record five wild pitches with a strong effort by the bullpen to beat the Minnesota Twins 5-3 on Wednesday night.
Weeks had three hits, drove in three runs and scored twice.
Manny Parra (2-5) won for the first time as a starter this season. He tied a 35-year team mark with four wild pitches.
Reliever Kameron Loe threw a fifth to set a team record for wild pitches in a game, but the AL Central-leading Twins failed to take advantage.
