–Marwin Gonzalez hit a three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning off of Josh Hader to help the Twins beat the Brewers in game one of their two game series at Miller Park Tuesday night. The Brewers had just grabbed the lead – scoring four runs in the seventh on a run-scoring double from Christian Yelich and a three-run homer from Yasmani Grandal. Drew Pomeranz gave up a double to lead off the eighth, followed up with a walk before recording the first out. Matt Albers got the next batter out, before being lifted for Hader. Gonzalez then sent the first pitch he saw from Hader out of the park to give the Twins the lead. It’s the 13th home run Hader has given up this season. The final game of the series is this afternoon – Gio Gonzalez gets the start for Milwaukee against Kyle Gibson of the Twins. Coverage starts at 12:35, first pitch at 1:10 on KFIZ.
