Braun homers in Brewers' 6-2 win over Twins

Ryan Braun extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a tiebreaking home run and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-2 Sunday.

Braun connected for a two-run shot in the fifth inning, backing Chris Narveson (5-5).

The punchless Twins, using a watered-down lineup decimated by injuries, have scored only eight runs in losing five consecutive games.
