Eric Thames has a penchant for game-changing Antworten

Thames hit a two-run homer that accounted for the game’s only runs as the Milwaukee Brewers slipped past the Minnesota Twins 2-0 on Tuesday. Thames has three home runs in the past six games.

”I’d say that’s a hot streak Quincy Williams II Jersey ,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Eight of Thames’ 12 homers have put the Brewers on the board and seven have given his team a lead.

Milwaukee broke through in the fifth against Minnesota starter Jake Odorizzi (3-6) when pinch-hitter Nate Orf walked and stole second before Thames lined a homer that just cleared the right-field fence.

”It was a cutter that didn’t get in far enough,” Odorizzi said. ”I just didn’t execute it, plain and simple. I just didn’t get enough break on it. Right pitch, just bad execution and it turns out to be the deciding factor.”

Thames reached base three times in four at-bats. After the game, he credited Milwaukee’s pitching, which held Minnesota to two hits.

”Our bullpen has been the hammer for us,” Thames said. ”They have been the ones to pick us up, but we need to start scoring more, getting guys on base and driving them in and give them breathing room.”

It wasn’t just the bullpen on this day.

Milwaukee starter Junior Guerra (5-5) pitched five shutout innings. He gave up two hits while walking three and striking out eight and pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the first after giving up a double and two walks.

”Being able to put up a zero up there and not let them score was very big,” Guerra said through team translator Carlos Brizuela. ”Walks are very lethal, especially for a starter.”

Josh Hader pitched a season-high three innings in relief for the Brewers and didn’t allow a hit. Closer Corey Knebel notched his ninth save in 11 attempts by striking out the side in the ninth.

Both starting pitchers held their opponents in check but struggled with high pitch counts. Guerra threw 89 pitches. Odorizzi gave up two runs and four hits in five innings. He walked four and struck out nine but threw 109 pitches.

The Twins fell to 1-7 on their current nine-game road trip.

INFIELD INACTIVITY

The Twins became the first team whose first baseman, Joe Mauer Ryquell Armstead Jersey , played an entire game and had no putouts or assists since Edwin Encarnacion did it with Toronto against Baltimore on Aug. 25, 2012. This has happened just six other times in the past 20 years and never to the Twins.

”There wasn’t a ground ball today, which is a baseball oddity,” Molitor said. ”I can’t really explain it other than Odorizzi, we know, is a fly ball guy.”

CHOKED UP

In the ninth, home plate umpire Marty Foster called Jake Cave out on strikes but didn’t raise his arm right away with the signal, prompting an argument from Molitor.

”It looked like, as simply as I can state it, that he wasn’t going to make the call,” Molitor said. ”Jake made the mistake of walking away, and it looked like (Foster) put his arm up after the fact. He said that he had called it right away but that he was choking on his Nicorette mints.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Twins: Recalled LHP Gabriel Moya from Triple-A Rochester and optioned RHP Zack Littell to Rochester. Littell was the losing pitcher in Monday’s 10-inning game. …2B Brian Dozier didn’t start so he could rest but entered the game in the seventh. ”It’s always tough to sit (Dozier) Gardner Minshew II Jersey ,” Molitor said. ”I think if he had his druthers, he would play 162 games and start them all.”

Brewers: OF Christian Yelich didn’t start for the fifth consecutive game due to lower back tightness but entered in the ninth as a defensive replacement. ..OF Lorenzo Cain (left groin strain) is eligible to come off the DL on Wednesday, but Brewers manager Craig Counsell said he likely won’t be in the lineup right away. ”There’s enough caution there that we’ve got to get over the last hurdle,” Counsell said. ”We’re not to 100 percent yet.” … RHP Zach Davies (right shoulder tightness) is dealing with back soreness and stiffness. ”He won’t throw until that’s gone,” Counsell said. ”That’s going to set him back.”

UP NEXT

Twins: Jose Berrios (8-6, 3.52 ERA) gets the start in the three-game series finale. Berrios will face the Brewers for the first time in his career.

Brewers: Chase Anderson (6-6, 4.18) has held opponents to a .208 batting average this season.



ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Known for his spirited energy, Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay pledges to show increased patience this season.Already, that’s being put to the test.Lindsay participated in individual drills Wednesday at minicamp as his surgically repaired right wrist heals. He also sat out the team drills, which made him antsy.“I’m itching to be out there,” said Lindsay Christian Wilkins Jersey , whose wild hair and relentless rushing style earned him the nickname “Tasmanian Devil” at the University of Colorado. “That’s why they have to hold the reins on me so tight.”With a new coach in Vic Fangio and digesting a different system, the second-year undrafted tailback is eager to display what he can do.Last season, Lindsay rushed for 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns. Only a wrist injury at Oakland on Christmas Eve deprived him of a shot at breaking Dominic Rhodes’ 2001 record of 1,104 yards for undrafted rookie running backs. Still, Lindsay earned a Pro Bowl selection even if he couldn’t play.On his list of areas to improve in 2019 — patience. More specifically, waiting for things to develop, especially given the different blocking schemes.But he could hardly stay still on the sideline with Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker splitting the reps.Lindsay wanted to be taking handoffs.“But you can’t go out there half-healthy. You’re going against these grown men and it’s your livelihood,” said Lindsay, who attended the Pro Bowl as a social media correspondent. “They want to put me in the best situation to be able to make plays. I want to be able to go the whole entire year, not half a year.”Lindsay believes he will fit in well in this new offense. He can’t wait to start developing a bond with quarterback Joe Flacco.“Flacco’s seen me, heard about me Michael Deiter Jersey , but now he has to trust me,” Lindsay said. “I have to go back and earn his trust.”At times, Lindsay ditched his wrist brace for some of the drills. He’s balancing being smart about his wrist with the desire to participate in more activities.“You don’t want to go out there and mess up by tripping or falling, something that’s not supposed to happen,” Lindsay said. “When it’s time, it’s going to be time. I’m going to go out there and showcase.”Fangio said he expects Lindsay to be full-go for training camp. As for his preference about whether he’d rather have a featured back or use the hot-hand approach, Fangio will take a wait-and-see approach. He likes what he sees from Lindsay even if it’s been in a limited capacity.“He’s a very intense competitor, wants to do well and has his priorities in order,” Fangio said.Next month, Lindsay will host a football camp for kids in the Denver area. He will be out there with them and fully engaged.“That’s what I do,” said Lindsay, who grew up in Denver. “I’m not going to just sit there.”After all Daniel Jones Jersey , it’s difficult enough to sit out some of the minicamp action.“Any injury is frustrating. I’m anxious to be out there with my teammates,” Lindsay said. “I see Booker and Royce putting in a lot of work and I want to be out there with them. I like the grind. I like being tired. I like sweat, blood, the tears. That’s what I’m here for. I can’t wait to get back to that.”NOTES: Former Broncos QB Peyton Manning and his father, Archie, stopped by minicamp Wednesday. Fangio maintained that Archie was the best quarterback in the Manning family. “I always said if he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers back when he played, instead of (Terry) Bradshaw — if him and Bradshaw switched spots, Archie would’ve had all those Super Bowl rings and Bradshaw would’ve had to go through the agony of playing with the Saints in the ’70s.” … Fangio estimated that 90% of the concepts have been installed. … K Taylor Bertolet took quite a few of the field-goal attempts Wednesday over Brandon McManus. “Brandon is obviously the incumbent,” Fangio said. “He (Bertolet) would have to knock him out like in a heavyweight battle.”
