The dreadful month of May is nearly over for the Milwaukee Brewers and the 2013 season just might be as well. The Minnesota Twins completed a four game, home and home sweep of the Brewers with an 8-6 victory Thursday night at Target Field, Milwaukee's sixth consecutive loss. Kyle Lohse returned from the disabled list to serve up a career worst four home runs, three came in the 4th inning. Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer went back to back and Ryan Doumit added a two run shot as Minnesota built a 6-0 lead. Logan Schaefer went three for four with three runs batted in to lead the Brewer comeback effort but the team fell short again. P.J. Walters got the win to improve to 2-0. Lohse falls to 1-6 after lasting four and two thirds innings, giving up 8 hits and 6 runs. The Brewer slide includes a stastistical oddity. Milwaukee has now gone 59 consecutive innings without even leading on the scoreboard. Milwaukee (19-33) is now 16 games out of first, residing in the basement of the NL Central, experiencing the worst month of May (5-22) in franchise history. The Brewers open a three game series in Philadelphia Friday night with Yovani Gallardo facing Cole Hamels. Pre-game coverage on WTAQ begins at 5:30 PM.
