MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee scored three runs on two misjudged balls in the outfield by Chris Heisey in the Brewers' 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds last night. Wily Peralta allowed three hits. Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth for his 29th save. Cincinnati's Mat Latos gave up four earned runs and eight hits in seven innings.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers have called up right-hander Jeremy Jeffress from Triple-A Nashville to give the bullpen a boost. Jeffress joined the team before last night's game against the Cincinnati Reds. He was 4-1 with a 1.51 ERA and five saves in the minors. Reliever Rob Wooten was optioned to Triple-A to make room for Jeffress.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Josh Willingham's tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians last night. Kurt Suzuki had a two-run double among his three hits as the Twins beat the Indians at home for the first time in more than 11 months. Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Robbie Hummel. Hummel averaged 3.4 points in just over 12 minutes per game as a rookie last season. Bringing Hummel back gives president and coach Flip Saunders a shooter off the bench with the ability to play multiple positions.
