May Gives Up 6 Runs – In The First Inning
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Kyle Lohse pitched six effective innings and benefited from Milwaukee's six-run first inning to get his first win since May 16 as the Brewers beat the Minnesota Twins 10-4 on Friday night.
Lohse has beaten every team in the majors now after the 13-year veteran's first victory in three career starts against the club he broke into the majors with and spent six seasons.
Gerardo Parra, Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett all homered to power the Brewers and help spoil the return of fan favorite Paul Molitor, who is in his first year as manager of the Twins.
Lohse (4-9) gave up homers to Brian Dozier and Trevor Plouffe, increasing his total to 19 allowed — second-most in the majors — in 16 starts.
Twins starter Trevor May (4-6) was charged with six runs — five earned — and six hits while getting just one out in the first inning.
Dozier led off the game with a home run. Parra matched that feat when he led off the bottom of the first inning.
It was Dozier's fourth leadoff homer this season and 11th of his career. Parra connected for his first leadoff home run of the season and sixth of his career.
