Dozier, Willingham help Twins top Brewers

MILWAUKEE - 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.

Willingham's homer gave a nice cushion for Twins' starter Samuel Deduno. He pitched five innings and gave up six hits and two runs. He earned his second win of the season.

The game-winning runs came off of the bat of Brian Dozier in the fifth inning. He hit a home run off Brewers' starter Yovani Gallardo. Gallardo pitched five innings and gave up eight hits and six runs.

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.
