MINNEAPOLIS — The Twins hit a barrage of blasts to power past the Brewers, 11-4, on Tuesday night at Target Field. Minnesota has won the first two games of the four-game Interleague set, moving 1 1/2 games back of the second American League Wild Card spot. Milwaukee remains 1 1/2 games back in the National League Central, following the Cubs’ loss to the Giants.

The Twins hit five home runs, including three off Milwaukee right-hander Matt Garza during a six-run fourth inning. In his second start since returning from the disabled list, Garza took the loss, allowing a season-high eight runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings.
