Brewers top Twins as McCutchen, Adames hit 2-run homers


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers outlasted three rain delays to beat the Minnesota Twins 6-3 in the opener of a border-state series between the first-place teams.

Andrew McCutchen and Willy Adames each hit a two-run homer off Twins starter Josh Winder.

Jonathan Davis and Jace Peterson pitched in RBI singles to support Jason Alexander. The 29-year-old rookie endured two of the stoppages and stayed in for four innings. Then the Brewers turned a 5-2 lead over to their dominant bullpen and bounced back from a 2-4 homestand.

Josh Hader pitched a perfect ninth for his 27th save.
