MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Joe Mauer had two hits, two RBIs and one of Minnesota's four home runs to help the Twins beat the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 on Thursday night.

Chris Parmelee, Brian Dozier and Ryan Doumit also went deep to back P.J. Walters (2-0), who gave up four runs on 10 hits in six innings. The Twins swept the season series against their neighbors to the east for the first time in franchise history and have won five of their last six following a 10-game losing streak.

Kyle Lohse (1-6) gave up six runs on eight hits in 4 2-3 innings against his former team. Logan Schafer drove in three runs and finished a homer shy of the cycle for the Brewers, who have lost a season-high six straight games.
