Orlando Arcia drove in three runs, including a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning that powered the Milwaukee Brewers past Minnesota 5-4 on Monday night to stop the major league-leading Twins' six-game winning streak.
Josh Hader struck out Miguel Sano on three pitches with two runners on, notching his 13th save after a two-inning appearance.
The Twins, who fell to 19-7 in May, had a one-run decision for the first time in 11 games. They outscored their opponents 53-16 during their six-game streak.
After an RBI single by rookie Luis Arraez and a three-run homer by Byron Buxton , both with two outs in the second inning against Brewers starter Gio Gonzalez, the Twins stopped scoring. Gonzalez settled down and retired the last six batters he faced. Then the bullpen finished with 4 1/3 scoreless innings, scattering three singles.
Jeremy Jeffress, Junior Guerra and Corbin Burnes (1-3) bridged the gap to Hader.
The crowd of 29,167 included at least an even split with Brewers fans, the local contingent likely lessened by an all-day downpour that dampened the Memorial Day holiday and didn't stop until shortly before first pitch.
During a brief return by the rain, Keston Hiura had the first of three straight hits against Michael Pineda in the third, the only hits allowed by the Twins starter in six innings. Arcia doubled to put the Brewers on the board , and Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich followed with sacrifice flies to bring them to 4-3.
In the eighth, Arcia took Taylor Rogers (1-1) deep for a two-run shot after pinch-hitter Hernan Perez doubled.
