Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun and Adam Lind hit two-run homers in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Minnesota Twins 5-3 on Sunday.

Down 5-1, the Twins rallied in the ninth. Torii Hunter, who homered twice Saturday, hit a two-run homer off Francisco Rodriguez.

Two outs later, the Twins got a pair of singles before Brian Dozier looked at strike three for the final out.

Will Smith (4-0) retired the Twins in order in the eighth.

Reliever Casey Fien (2-3) gave up Braun's 15th homer that broke a 1-all tie and Lind's drive.
