Lohse, 36, is one of three active pitchers (with the Pirates' A.J.Burnett and the Marlins' Dan Haren) in a fraternity that began with Al Leiter in 2002.
"It's pretty cool," Lohse said. "These guys tell me that I'm old and I've been around, but that's only the third time I've faced [the Twins], so it's not like I've faced them a whole bunch of times and haven't beaten them. It's an accomplishment I'm proud of. I've been around and that proves I've had some longevity and done some things in this game. So I'll go home happy about that."
Leiter started the club when he beat the D-backs on April 30, 2002. The full list of pitchers to beat all 30 teams also includes Randy Johnson, Barry Zito, Kevin Brown, Terry Mulholland, Curt Schilling, Woody Williams, Jamie Moyer, Javier Vazquez, Vicente Padilla and Derek Lowe.
Lohse credited Brewers hitters, who scored 10 runs in the first two innings, for carrying him through another night on which he lacked his best stuff. Lohse surrendered six hits including two more home runs, running to 19 his total of home runs allowed this season, second-most in the Majors. Lohse has allowed at least one home run in seven straight starts and 14 of his 16 starts this season.
"He got through his six innings," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "There have been times he's pitched better but got worse results. He got through it. But when you're pitching with a lead like that, the game is a little different. You have a lead like that, it's just get outs, and he did his job there."
Said Lohse: "It was more of a grinding kind of an outing -- I kept getting ahead of guys, then going deep in counts. It's just not being quite as sharp as I want to be. Bottom line, we won the game, so you go home happy with that."
