MLB: Twins bash Bush, Brewers with 7-run 1st, win 15-3

MINNEAPOLIS – Jason Kubel and the Minnesota Twins battered a frustrated Dave Bush for seven first-inning runs and beat the sputtering Milwaukee Brewers 15-3 on Friday night.

Kubel drove in four runs and drew one of eight walks handed out by the Brewers. Bush was in strong disagreement about the second one, yelling at home plate umpire Ed Rapuano for calling ball four on a close pitch to Michael Cuddyer with the bases loaded to force in the first run.

Rapuano actually approached the mound to angrily confront Bush, who was held back by teammate Prince Fielder. Pitching coach Rick Peterson came out to talk to Bush, who promptly served up a sharp two-run single to Kubel.

Bush then was called for a balk after losing his balance and halting his delivery at the edge of the mound, and Delmon Young followed with an RBI single.
