The Twins have played at Milwaukee every year since Miller Park opened in 2001, and they have had some success, going 11-10. But Sunday's game, where the Twins blew a four-run lead and lost 6-5, marked the fourth year in a row they let a lead slip away against the host Brewers.

Jacque Jones' three-run homer in the sixth inning helped the Twins build a 5-0 lead, but it came apart with Milwaukee's six-run seventh. The Twins tied it on Luis Rivas' home run in the eighth, but Geoff Jenkins blasted a Terry Mulholland curveball for a homer leading off the bottom of the inning.
