MILWAUKEE — Travis Shaw hit a three-run homer and Jesus Aguilar had a go-ahead, two-run single during a seven-run fourth inning to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat Diamondbacks 9-2 on Wednesday and send the Diamondbacks to their seventh straight loss. Brent Suter (4-3) allowed two runs and four hits in 5q innings as the NL Central-leading Brewers moved a season-high 12 games over .500. Milwaukee’s 31-19 start is the team’s best over 50 games in franchise history. The
MILWAUKEE — Jhoulys Chacin and three relievers combined on a three-hitter as the Milwaukee Brewers slipped past the slumping Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 on Tuesday night. Domingo Santana drove in the only run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning for the NL Central leaders. Milwaukee (30-19) moved a season-high 11 games over .500, while the Diamondbacks have lost six in a row and 12 of 13 — scoring just 24 runs in that stretch. Arizona starter Matt Koch (2-3), who allowed four
MILWAUKEE — Chase Anderson needed a slight tuneup in the first inning and then kept on motoring. Anderson got all the run support he needed as Travis Shaw, Domingo Santana and Lorenzo Cain homered off Zack Greinke, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 on Monday night. Anderson (4-3) threw six strong innings in his return to the rotation. He’d been ill and on the 10-day disabled list, came back and allowed three hits in his first start since May 6. That top
MINNEAPOLIS — While Jose Berrios struggled through a four-start stretch that began in mid-April, the Minnesota Twins were reeling for most of that time. His last two turns have been masterpieces, and maybe the injury-affected Twins have found a groove again. Logan Morrison forced in the go-ahead run with a four-pitch walk in the eighth inning after striking out in his first three at-bats, propelling Berrios and the Twins to a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
MINNEAPOLIS — Logan Morrison came through with a big hit for the injury-decimated Minnesota Twins lineup. Morrison’s two-run single gave Minnesota’s offense a much-needed lift, and four relievers worked 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. The Twins salvaged the final game of the series, snapping a three-game skid with a roster missing four of its expected starters when spring training began. Joe Mauer was placed on the disabled
MINNEAPOLIS — The Milwaukee Brewers are making themselves at home on the road. Christian Yelich hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth, Josh Hader struck out six in 2 1/3 hitless innings of relief and the NL Central leaders beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 Saturday night. “It seems like it’s been somebody different every night,” Yelich said, “and that’s kind of what it takes to win on the road.” The Brewers are now 7-2 on a 10-game road trip with a

MINNEAPOLIS — With Ryan Braun and Eric Thames on the disabled list, the Milwaukee Brewers are missing plenty of power in the middle of their lineup. Jesus Aguilar is proving to be quite the fill-in slugger. Aguilar homered twice and Ji-Man Choi hit a solo home run in his return to the majors as Milwaukee beat the Minnesota Twins 8-3 on Friday night. “It’s the power, for sure,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Aguilar. “It’s just kind of hit ability.
PHOENIX — First Milwaukee took three of four in Colorado. Now the Brewers have won two of three in Arizona. A trip to the usual NL West trouble spots turned out nicely indeed for Milwaukee. Travis Shaw, Domingo Santana, Christian Yelich and Tyler Saladino homered in the first four innings off Matt Koch, and the Brewers routed the Diamondbacks 8-2 in the series finale on Wednesday. “We had four homers and I thought we had some near-misses too,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell
MINNEAPOLIS — Dexter Fowler and Matt Carpenter were expected to be key members of the St. Louis Cardinals this season, among the top three hitters in the batting order. St. Louis hopes Wednesday’s performance was a sign the two are getting back to their usual production. Fowler reached base four times and drove in two runs in his return to the lineup, and the Cardinals beat former starter Lance Lynn and the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Wednesday. Carpenter had three hits after being
