Hader blows it again, Brewers fall to Twins 7-5

Chase Anderson got the start for the Milwaukee Brewers in their series opener against the Minnesota Twins, and from the start it looked like he was going to have to battle through this one. He worked around a walk in the first inning and then a base knock and hit batter in the second while posting zeroes, but the Twinkies broke through in the third inning. Max Kepler walked to lead off the frame ahead of Mitch Garver, who has quietly been one of the best hitters in baseball this year. Garver deposited a first-pitch fastball from Anderson over the fence for his 22nd bomb of the year to make it 2-0.
