MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — The Brewers were hoping to get back to .500 but Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco had other ideas. Nolasco struck out seven and allowed just five hits over six-plus innings. The Twins beat the Brewers 8-1 on Thursday afternoon at Miller Park. Milwaukee is now 7-9 on the season. 
Taylor Jungmann (0-3) struggled for the Brewers, allowing a career-high six walks, four hits and three runs over four-plus innings. The right-hander’s ERA stands at 8.47 after dropping his third straight decision.
The Brewers start a three-game series against the Phillies at Miller Park Friday night.
Some injury news.. Manager Craig Counsell says LH reliever Will Smith (left knee) will start jogging soon. RH pitchers Matt Garza (right lat) and Corey Knebel (left oblique) are “progressing the right way.” Both Garza and Knebel started the season on the 15-day DL.
