MILWAUKEE — When the Twins fell behind by three runs in the first inning to the Milwaukee Brewers and All-Star Game starting pitcher Corbin Burnes, Wednesday’s game quickly looked as if it would be an uphill battle.

But the Twins responded immediately, pulling even with three runs of their own in the top of the second inning, using a Jose Miranda home run, consecutive doubles from Kyle Garlick and Nick Gordon, and a Gary Sánchez single to do so.

It wasn’t until later in the game — the fourth inning, to be exact — that that uphill battle became too much for the Twins. The Brewers rallied for five runs that inning, taking advantage of some Twins wildness on their way to a 10-4 victory at American Family Field.

Twins starting pitcher Chris Archer, who had allowed a home run to Rowdy Tellez in the first inning, walked the first three batters he faced in the fourth, spelling the end of his day. It marked the second start this season — and second of his last three — in which he walked six batters in a game.

Archer made way for Jharel Cotton who, after striking out the first batter he faced, issued a bases-loaded walk and then a sacrifice fly before Tellez took him deep for his second three-run homer of the day.

Luis Urías homered an inning later off Yennier Cano, bringing the Brewers’ lead to seven at the time.
