Brewers Balk Home Decisive Run In Loss To Twins

ilwaukee Brewers’ reliever Oliver Drake balks home the decisive run in the seventh inning of a 5-4 loss at Minnesota Monday night. Eddie Rosario, the runner at third, baited Drake by straying down the line, and Drake said he flinched before he stepped off the rubber. Brewers’ manager Craig Counsell argued that Jason Castro was not in the batter’s box at the time, but plate umpire Bill Walke said the ball was in play, and Drake committed a balk with his movements. Drake took the loss and fell to 3-4, while Twins’ reliever Buddy Boshers won his first decision of the year. Ryan Braun had three hits, and Keon Broxton homered and doubled with two R-B-Is as Milwaukee dropped its second straight before the Cubs won at San Francisco, extending Chicago’s lead to one and a half games on second place Milwaukee in the N-L Central.
