Continued: Twins give up big lead but sweep Milwaukee with a win in 14 innings

Ryan Doumit, Willingham and Hicks homered as the Twins took a 4-0 lead. Hicks also robbed Gomez of a home run in the second, leaping and reaching over the center field wall before crashing to the ground.

“I gotta work on my dismount,” Hicks said.

Gomez was nearing second and tipped his helmet to Hicks after he made the catch.

The Brewers scored three runs in the third, then tied it in the fourth on Ryan Braun’s RBI triple off Twins starter Scott Diamond, which knocked him out of the game.

The Twins return home for a five-game homestand still lacking consistent offense and outings that go longer than five-plus innings. The schedule is a little more favorable, as their next three series come against teams with losing records. When they do run into a winning team — the Washington Nationals on June 7-9 — it’s one that has underachieved for the most part.

So there’s an opportunity for the Twins to calibrate their game over the next several days before they run into a couple of the top-tier teams again.

“There’s a lot of pressure on our pitching staff and our offense to get going at the same time,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said before the game.

Now after he needed nearly all of his players to win Tuesday, he’ll really need people to answer the bell on Wednesday.
