The Minnesota Twins ended a four-game losing streak on Monday night, defeating the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 4-1 at Miller Park.

The night got off to another rough start for the Twins as Milwaukee took an early lead in the second inning when Orlando Arcia delivered an RBI single that narrowly missed the glove of Eddie Rosario in left field.

Rosario got his retribution in the top of the third, delivering a two-out grand slam that got the Twins on the board and gave them a 4-1 lead.

That gave Randy Dobnak a solid cushion to work with and he was sharp outside of the Arcia single in the second. The right-hander allowed just one run over five innings while mixing in four hits, a walk, and three strikeouts.

The Twins went to their bullpen from there and although Keston Hiura chipped into the lead with a solo home run in the eighth, Taylor Rogers rebounded from his first blown save of the year to slam the door and lead the Twins to victory.

The Twins will look for the series sweep on Tuesday night when the Brewers send Josh Lindblom (1-0, 4.15 ERA) to the mound for a 7:10 p.m. first pitch.
