Milwaukee shortstop Brad Miller drew a 10th-inning walk with the bases loaded to give the Brewers at 6-5 win over Minnesota Monday night. The Twins had scored five unanswered runs of the ballgame, including the third grand slam given up by Milwaukee pitching in the last three games. Starting pitcher Brent Suter praised his team, after he gave up the 4 run shot.
Manager Craig Counsell gave a lot of credit to his bullpen for producing five shutout innings.
Manny Pina contributed his sixth home run of the season while the Brewers were wiping out the Minnesota lead. Counsell is very happy with how the Crew battled offensively.
Closer Corey Knebel picked up his second victory. Right-hander Junior Guerra starts tonight’s (Tuesday’s) second game of the three-game series at Miller Park.
