Jackson Chourio, the youngest player in six years, hit a home run, but the Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Minnesota Twins 7-3 on Wednesday. Ryan Jeffers hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to lead the Twins to victory.

Rhys Hoskins also hit a home run for the Brewers, who suffered their first loss after winning their first four games. Alex Kiriloff of the Twins had a remarkable game, going 4 for 4 with two singles, a double, and a triple. Jeffers was the star for the Twins, driving in four runs.

Chourio’s home run came in the fifth inning off Daniel Duarte’s pitch. Chourio, who recently signed a big contract, has been performing well, batting .350 with a hit in each of his first five games in the major leagues.

At just 20 years and 23 days old, Chourio became the youngest player to hit a home run since Juan Soto in 2018. He’s also the youngest Brewer to homer since Gary Sheffield in 1988. Brewers manager Pat Murphy praised Chourio’s progress, saying he belongs in the big leagues.

After Chourio’s homer gave the Brewers a 3-1 lead, the Twins staged a comeback against Milwaukee’s bullpen. Kiriloff and Byron Buxton started the seventh inning with consecutive doubles, and Carlos Correa’s single tied the game. Then, with two outs, Jeffers hit a three-run homer to give the Twins the lead for good.

Jeffers added another RBI single in the ninth inning. The Twins’ pitchers shut down the Brewers’ offense, with Daniel Duarte, Brock Stewart, Griffin Jax, and Steven Okert combining to retire 15 of the last 16 batters.

Joe Ross made his first major league appearance since August 2021 for the Brewers, while Chris Paddack made his first start since May 2022 for the Twins. Both pitchers have recovered from Tommy John surgery twice.

Ross pitched 3 2/3 shutout innings but struggled with his control, walking five batters. Paddack allowed two runs and six hits in four innings.
