The Milwaukee Brewers drop to third place in the National League Central after losing their fifth straight game, 7-2 to Minnesota at Miller Park. The team held a “players only” meeting afterward, where veterans Ryan Braun and Matt Garza told the Crew’s younger foundation to start having fun again, restore their energy, and stop taking things so hard as the Brewers have gone 9-17 since the All Star break. The Brewers are now two games behind the first place Cubs, who were idle Thursday while Saint Louis won its sixth straight move into second at one game back. Milwaukee’s Keon Broxton had the game’s only homer — but Zach Davies gave up seven runs in five and two thirds innings to drop to 13-6, as the Twins scored three times in the second and three more in the third to sweep their four game Interleague series with Milwaukee. The Twins went above .500 with the victory, and is now back in the American League Wild Card race at three and a half games back.
