MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Carlos Gomez hit a three-run homer against his former team to spark Milwaukee's comeback, and the Brewers hung on to beat the Minnesota Twins 8-5 on Thursday.

Khris Davis hit a two-run homer off Kevin Correia (2-7) for the lead in the sixth inning to pull Brewers starter Wily Peralta (5-5) out of an early deficit built by Oswaldo Arcia's grand slam. Jonathan Lucroy tacked on a two-run shot in the ninth, and Francisco Rodriguez finished up for his 18th save in 20 attempts.

Arcia gave the Twins a 4-0 lead in the third inning, but the young slugger left the game after spraining his right ankle while being picked off second base in the sixth.

Peralta was in trouble every other inning, but Arcia was the only one who actually made him pay for it - and in a big way.
