MILWAUKEE (AP) — Pinch-hitter Eduardo Escobar hit a sacrifice fly with one out in the 14th inning, lifting the Minnesota Twins to a 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

Jean Segura went 6 for 7 — all singles — to raise his batting average to an NL-leading .366 but Milwaukee lost for the fourth straight time and 20th in 25 games.

Hicks hit the first pitch from reliever Burke Badenhop (0-2) for a ground-rule double to lead off the 14th. Pedro Florimon, who made a baserunning blunder to get thrown out at third in the 12th, executed a sacrifice bunt to move Hicks to third.

Escobar then hit a 1-0 pitch to deep left, and Hicks scored with a slide that was a couple seconds ahead of the throw from Ryan Braun to give the Twins the lead.

Ryan Pressly (2-0) pitched two perfect innings of relief to earn the victory.
