(Friday, June 14th)
Final Score: Cincinnati 4, Milwaukee 3 (10 innings)
Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Jay Bruce's solo home run in the 10th inning
gave the Cincinnati Reds a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers to open a three-
With Burke Badenhop (0-3) on the mound and one out, Bruce stroked a 1-2 pitch
to left field and it just cleared the wall to give the Reds the win.
Brandon Phillips and Jack Hannahan each drove in a run for the Reds, who have
won four of five and were coming off a 14-inning loss to the Cubs on Thursday.
"Yesterday was a little disheartening and we were out there a long time," said
Bruce. "We used a lot of guys and frankly everyone was a little tired today so
this was a big win."
Bronson Arroyo gave up three runs -- two earned -- on 12 hits with a walk and
five strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings. Alfredo Simon (5-2) pitched a 1-2-3 10th
to get the win.
Scooter Gennett and Martin Maldonado each hit a solo home run for the Brewers,
who had won five of six coming in. Kyle Lohse was charged with three runs --
one earned -- on five hits over six innings.
The Reds worked a run across in the first as Shin-Soo Choo led off with a
double, stole third and easily scored on Phillips' single to left.
In the second, Zack Cozart led off with a single and moved to third on Ryan
Hanigan's base hit. Two batters later, Choo hit a chopper to second that
Gennett couldn't field, allowing Cozart to score for a 2-0 lead.
Gennett atoned for the error in the third when he led off the frame with his
first career home run.
Milwaukee loaded the bases with one out in the sixth and got a run across as
Maldonado was hit by a pitch, scoring Aramis Ramirez to tie the game. Arroyo
worked out of the jam, though, by getting Gennett to fly out and forcing a
fielder's choice from Lohse to end the frame.
"I had the home run and all that, but it's all about winning," said Gennett.
"You know, I was up with the bases loaded and didn't get it done."
The Reds, though, went back on top in the bottom of the frame. Todd Frazier
singled with one out then moved to third as he stole second and advanced a
base on Yuniesky Betancourt's bad throw. Hannahan's sac fly to right plated
Frazier for a 3-2 lead.
Maldonado's solo shot to left-center in the eighth tied the game. Milwaukee
loaded the bases later in the frame, but Sam LeCure got Jean Segura to pop out
and end the frame.
Milwaukee left nine 11 men on base as the team went 1-for-9 with runners in
scoring position, while Cincinnati was 1-for-10 with RISP and left eight ...
Cincinnati swept a three-game set against Milwaukee at home in May.
