Recap: Milwaukee vs. Minnesota

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Willingham's three-run homer helped the Minnesota Twins to a 6-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday.

Brian Dozier finished 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and two runs scored. Josmil Pinto supplied an RBI single for the Twins, who have won two of their last three.

Samuel Deduno (2-3) earned the win after tossing five innings, allowing just two runs on six hits with four walks and two strikeouts.

Ryan Braun drove in two runs and Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a run scored for Milwaukee, which entered the game with wins in five of its last six. Yovani Gallardo (3-4) was reached for six runs on eight hits with a walk and six strikeouts across five frames.

"For some reason he gets out of rhythm and he's not throwing the strikes that we know he can," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke on Gallardo. "He can't go through games doing that."

In the third, Dozier and Joe Mauer both singled with one out before Willingham launched a first-pitch slider over the wall in left-center field to give the Twins a 4-1 lead -- one which the visitors did not relinquish.

Khris Davis singled and consecutive walks to Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay loaded the bases in the fourth for Milwaukee. Martin Maldonado's single to left plated Davis.

In the top of the fifth, Dozier's shot to left scored Danny Santana to give Minnesota a 6-2 advantage.

"We had some nice swings at the right times," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said.

Carlos Gomez doubled to lead off the eighth for Milwaukee. Overbay brought him around on a two-out fly to center.

Glen Perkins came on to pitch the ninth for the Twins. He issued back-to- back walks to Rickie Weeks and Segura. Two batters later, Braun's sac fly scored Weeks and Segura moved to third. Perkins recovered to strike out Gomez and earn his 15th save of the season.

The Brewers opened the scoring in the first. After Segura and Scooter Gennett singled, Braun grounded into a force out that scored Segura from third.

Minnesota evened the score in the second. Trevor Plouffe singled with one out, moved to second on a wild pitch, advanced to third on a throwing error and came home on Pinto's single to left.

Prior to the start of the eighth inning, an unidentified male fell into the Brewers bullpen, but was conscious when transported to a local hospital ... Willingham has hit in seven straight games ... Mauer tied Bob Allison for third all-time in Twins history with 641 walks ... The final two games of the four-game set will shift to Minnesota starting Wednesday.
