Twins beat Brewers, game delayed when fan falls

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Josh Willingham hit a three-run homer and the Minnesota Twins beat Milwaukee 6-4 Tuesday night in a game delayed when a fan fell into the Brewers' bullpen.

The game was held up at the start of the eighth inning after the man fell. He was carried on a stretcher out of the bullpen in left-center field, and the Brewers said he was conscious and alert.

The man had a brace around his neck as he was put on a cart on the warning track. He was wheeled off and taken to a hospital.

Fans can watch games from a dining area beyond the wall in left-center. The concourse, which is at least 15 feet above the bullpen, is lined with a metal railing roughly four feet high.
