Baseball purists among Brewers fans may not hate that idea of starting the 10th inning with a man on second base anymore. Lorenzo Cain was placed there, advanced to third on a single, then scored on a fielder’s choice, giving Milwaukee a 6-5 win over the Twins on Opening Day. The Brewers trailed 5-2 going into the bottom of the ninth, but scored one run on a Christian Yelich single and tied the score on Travis Shaw’s two-run double. A crowd of 11-thousand-740 fans were watching. Closer Josh Hader picked up the victory after striking out the side in the top of the 10th. The Brewers and Twins take Friday off, then return to American Family Field Saturday for the second game of the three-game series. Corbin Burnes is Milwaukee’s scheduled starter, Jose Berrios goes for Minnesota.
