The Brewers sweep the Twins for the first time since a two-game series in 1998.

Yovani Gallardo took a perfect game into the 6th inning. Drew Butera broke it up with a single after 1 out. Gallardo went on to pitch a complete-game 5-hit shutout. He also went 2 for 4 at the plate with 2 runs scored.

Outside of the 3rd inning home runs by Weeks and Fielder, the Brewers scored a run in the 4th on a Corey Hart single. They were unable to pad the lead against Brian Duensing, but today five runs were enough.
