MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jean Segura's six hits weren't enough to help prevent the Milwaukee Brewers from losing for the 20th time in 25 games.

Pinch-hitter Eduardo Escobar hit a sacrifice fly with one out in the 14th inning, lifting the Minnesota Twins to a 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday night.

Segura went 6 for 7 - all singles - to raise his batting average to an NL-leading .365 but Milwaukee lost for the fourth straight time. His fifth hit, in the ninth, tied the game 5-all.

``It's amazing when you get six hits in one game,' Segura said. ``Wow. It's amazing.'

It was only the third time a Brewers player had six hits in a game, tying the team record set by Johnny Briggs in 1973 and Kevin Reimer in 1993.

``Oh my, goodness gracious, he hits about everything you throw up there,' Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire said of Segura. ``The guy's got one of the shortest, compact swings you've ever seen in your life and he seems to be on everything.'

Despite the fantastic night at the plate, the shortstop obtained in the trade last year that sent Zack Greinke to the Los Angeles Angels said his accomplishment was diminished by the team's loss.

``It doesn't matter how good you are if we lost,' Segura said.

Ryan Doumit, Josh Willingham and Aaron Hicks homered for the Twins, which have won three of four after dropping 10 straight.

Hicks hit the first pitch from reliever Burke Badenhop (0-2) for a ground-rule double to lead off the 14th. Pedro Florimon, who made a baserunning blunder to get thrown out at third in the 12th, executed a sacrifice bunt to move Hicks to third.

Escobar then hit a 1-0 pitch to deep left, and Hicks scored with a slide that was a couple seconds ahead of the throw from Ryan Braun to give the Twins the lead.

Ryan Pressly (2-0) pitched two perfect innings of relief to earn the victory.

Brian Duensing pitched the bottom of the 14th for his first save in two chances.

After Minnesota blew a 4-0 lead, Justin Morneau had a sacrifice fly in the eighth to give the Twins a 5-4 lead.

Milwaukee tied it at 5 in the bottom of the ninth on Segura's fifth single, scoring Jeff Bianchi from second as Twins closer Glen Perkins blew his second save.

``It's a tough loss,' manager Ron Roenicke said. ``Any time you go that many innings and lose it's tough. We played well, came back to tie it in the ninth but couldn't put together any offense after that.'

NOTES: RHP Kyle Lohse was announced as the starter for the Brewers game Thursday at Minnesota. He missed his last start due to right elbow tenderness. ... Brewers LHP Chris Narveson (left middle finger) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start on Thursday. He is expected to join the Brewers rotation after making four rehab starts.
