Eddie Rosario

The Minnesota Twins dropped their fourth of their last five games on Tuesday night as two home runs from Eddie Rosario and three total weren't enough in a 6-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Twins got off to a great start following their win on Monday night as Jorge Polanco and Rosario smashed solo home runs in the top of the first for an early 2-0 lead.

The Brewers chipped into the lead in the bottom half of the inning thanks to a Avasail Garcia home run, but Rosario extended it in the top of the third, blasting a two-run homer, his third of the series to put the Twins ahead 4-1.

While the Twins appeared ready to use their muscle for another win in Milwaukee, Manny Piña got to the Twins bullpen with a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth and a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game at 4-4.

The score held until the bottom of the eighth when Taylor Rogers came in to keep the Brewers at bay. But after walking Christian Yelich, Rogers served up a two-run homer to Jedd Gyorko to put the Brewers ahead 6-4.

The Twins had a last gasp after Nelson Cruz walked with two outs in the ninth, but Josh Hader struck out the red-hot Rosario to end the game.

Minnesota will wrap up the three-game series with the Brewers on Wednesday night as they send Kenta Maeda (2-0, 2.65 ERA) to oppose Eric Lauer (0-1, 9.53 ERA) with a 6:10 p.m. first pitch.
