Lohse rocked by former team

The Milwaukee Brewers saw their losing streak grow to 6-games, falling to the Minnesota Twins 8-6 on Thursday night at Target Field.

The Brewers have lost a season-high six straight games and dropped to 5-22 in the month of May.  That assures the Brewers of at least tying the franchise record for fewest victories in May.  A loss to the Philadelphia Phillies will set a team record.

Kyle Lohse gave up a career-high four home runs in just 4 2/3 innings in his worst outing of the season.

Joe Mauer, Chris Parmalee, Brian Dozier and Ryan Doumit all homered for the Twins in the win.  Minnesota swept the Brewers in the four game series, their first sweep of the Brewers in franchise history.

The offensive star for the Brewers was Logan Schafer, who was starting in right field in place of Norichika Aoki.  Schafer had 3 hits and 3 rbi’s, finishing a home run short of the cycle.

The Twins started the four game series riding a 10-game losing streak, but they turned their fortunes around by clubbing 10 home runs in the series.

The Brewers continue their road trip tonight in Philadelphia against the Phillies.  Yovani Gallardo (3-5, 4.79) goes for the Brewers.  Cole Hamels (1-8, 4.43) goes for the Phillies.
