Brewers fall to Twins in interleague opener, 11-3



 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Scott Diamond lost his scoreless streak. He still won his third straight start for the Minnesota Twins, who pounded the Milwaukee Brewers 11-3 on Friday night.

   Diamond (3-0) gave up a run in the first, ending the 14-inning scoreless stretch he put together in two starts since he was called up from the minors. He went on to give up three runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings.

   Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer, his eighth of the season, Joe Mauer had three hits and three RBIs while Denard Span had four hits and three RBIs for the Twins.

   Ryan Braun hit his 11th home run for the struggling Brewers, who went 1-3 on a short road trip earlier this week. Milwaukee had four errors.
