Lucroy, Greinke help Brewers rout Twins 16-4

Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy homered twice and had a career-high seven RBIs, Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings to improve to 14-0 at Miller Park, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Minnesota Twins 16-4 on Sunday.

Lucroy connected on an 0-2 pitch from Jeff Gray in the seventh inning for his first career grand slam. The ball nipped the back edge of the padding in right before falling into the Twins' bullpen. A curtain call followed for the Brewers' catcher who batted cleanup for the first time in his three-year career. He also had a solo homer in the first and an RBI single in the second.

Greinke (5-1) has not lost in 20 starts as a Brewer at Miller Park.

The Brewers chased Jason Marquis (2-4) with a big six-hit, six-run second inning, his shortest start of the season.
