Luis Urías hits walk-off sac fly, Brewers nip Twins

7-26-22

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Luis Urías (Yur-E-Us) delivered a game-ending sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to bring home Andrew McCutchen as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Minnesota Twins 7-6.

McCutchen started the winning rally with a one-out single off Tyler Duffey, who then walked Kolten Wong and Hunter Renfroe to load the bases. Urías followed with a fly ball, and McCutchen slid home head first well ahead of right fielder Alex Kiriloff’s throw. Urías homered earlier in the game and Renfroe and Wong also went deep. Renfroe has homered in four of the Brewers’ five games since the All-Star break.

Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sanó was activated from the 60-day injured list before the game after missing nearly three months with torn meniscus in his left knee. Sanó hurt his knee April 26 while celebrating the Twins’ 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers in a game that was decided on the final play.

He played four days later but left the game early with knee pain and later underwent surgery. Sano was batting just .093 with one homer and three RBI in 17 games at the time he went on the injured list. But he’s provided plenty of punch in the past.
