Madea takes no no into the 9th, Twins win in walk off
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Kenta Maeda lost a no-hitter in the ninth inning for the Minnesota Twins, who blew a three-run lead but came back to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 in 12 innings.
Byron Buxton slid headfirst into home on a slow roller against a five-man infield for the winning run. Jorge Polanco poked the grounder past Milwaukee pitcher David Phelps. Maeda’s no-hit bid was ended by Eric Sogard’s soft single that soared just over the glove of a leaping Polanco at shortstop.
Twins continue their series vs Milwaukee tonight. 7:10 p.m. first pitch on 950 KWAT.
