Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of a go-ahead
homer with two outs in the ninth inning as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the
Cincinnati Reds, 4-3, in the opener of a three-game set at Miller Park.
Francisco Rodriguez walked pinch-hitter Derrick Robinson with two outs to
bring Votto, the go-ahead run to plate. Francisco delivered a 2-2 fastball
over the heart of the plate and Votto drove it deep to center field, but Gomez
timed his jump at the wall perfectly, reached over and snagged a sure homer to
secure the win for the Brewers.
Jean Segura went 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI and Jonathan Lucroy added a
two-run homer for Milwaukee, which has won two of its last three games.
Kyle Lohse (5-6) gave up three runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings to win his
fourth straight decision. Lohse hasn't lost since May 30.
Chris Heisey homered while Jay Bruce and Xavier Paul added one RBI apiece for
the Reds, losers in three of their last four games.
Homer Bailey (5-7), coming off his second career no-hitter, was charged with
four runs on 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings.
