MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WSAU-TSN) - Carlos Gomez, Khris Davis and Jonathan Lucroy all belted home runs to power the Milwaukee Brewers to an 8-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins that completed a four-game, home-and-home set.

Gomez's three-run blast in the fourth inning and Davis' two-run shot in the sixth enabled Milwaukee to overcome an early 4-0 deficit, with Lucroy tacking on a two-run homer in the ninth as part of a 2-for-5 night that helped the Brewers bounce back from two straight losses to the Twins.

Ryan Braun added three hits and two runs scored, while Wily Peralta halted a five-start winless stretch with aid from a Milwaukee bullpen that combined for four innings of one-run ball.

Peralta (5-5) served up a third-inning grand slam to Oswaldo Arcia, but kept Minnesota off the board over the rest of his five frames of work.

Kevin Correia (2-7) allowed two of the Brewers' long balls and 10 hits overall while permitting five runs in five innings.

Arcia finished 2-for-3 before exiting the contest in the sixth with a sprained right ankle.
