Yovani Gallardo lost for the fourth time in his last five games as the Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Minnesota Twins 6-4 at Miller Park last night.
Five of the Twins six runs came on a pair of home runs. Josh Willingham clubbed a three run home run in the 3rd inning and Brian Dozier clubbed a two run home run in the 5th.
The loss dropped Gallardo to 3-4 on the season with a 4.08 ERA. In his last six starts, Gallardo is 1-4 with a 6.55 ERA.
Offensively, the Brewers had a number of opportunities but hit into three double plays in five innings against Twins starter Samuel Deduno.
The Brewers split their two-game series with the Twins at Miller Park. The two teams will now play a two-game series in the Twin Cities. It’s the start of a busy road schedule for the Brewers, who will play 15 of their next 18 games on the road.
Marco Estrada (5-2, 4.03) pitches for the Brewers. Minnesota goes with Ricky Nolasco (3-5, 5.70).
