News and Notes

Milwaukee Brewers 5, Minnesota Twins 4

The Twins have to be ready to say goodbye to the Brewers Jesus Aguilar after he hit his third home run of the series and the Twins lost 5-4. It wasn’t a great start for Romero as he allowed three earned runs, four total, in his 5.0 innings of work, but somehow they were in the game until the end. The biggest news of the game was Jake Cave getting the call to the majors as Joe Mauer hit the DL. In his second at-bat, Cave hit a two-run home run for his first career major league hit.
