Game 57: Brewers 3, Reds 4: Still Owning Milwaukee

Brewers (30-26)200100000391
Reds (29-28)00000022-460
W: Masset (1-3) L: Loe (2-5) S: Cordero (10)


Well, it’s nice to see that the Cincinnati Reds can still take a series from the Milwaukee Brewers.

This time, the win wasn’t nearly so dominating, requiring late-game heroics from Joey Votto and Jay Bruce. But they came through, each with their own 2-run homer. Votto’s was the one that gave them the lead.

And then Francisco Cordero came on for his 300th career save.

The game started off shakily, with starter Mike Leake giving up yet another home run to start the game. That makes it sound like it’s been Leake doing all of that for the Reds this year, but I know Volquez has done that at least twice. That first inning continues to be a problem.

But the offense came back and the Reds have some hope as they enter their first off-day in 20 days. And I grouse a bit when I have to work late every so often. At least I get weekends off.
