Twins top Brewers 7-4 in rain-shortened game for 4th in row

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Miguel Sano and Byung Ho Park homered, and the Minnesota Twins got a season-best 14 hits Monday night in a 7-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that was shortened to six innings because of rain.

After losing their first nine games this season, the Twins have won four straight.

Rain started to fall in the sixth and began downpouring as Milwaukee reliever Tyler Cravy struck out Oswaldo Arcia to end the inning. Play was stopped and the game was called after a delay of 2 hours, 6 minutes.

Every Minnesota starter had a hit to support Phil Hughes, who earned his first win of the year. Hughes (1-2) allowed four runs, three earned, and six hits with six strikeouts in an abbreviated complete game.
