Tyler Saladino's second grand slam in as many days made it close, but the Milwaukee Brewers could not close the deal Monday night, falling to the Cincinnati Reds 6-5.
A Yasmani Grandal double opened the scoring for the Brewers in the third inning, only to see the Reds score single tallies in the fifth and sixth to take a small 2-1 advantage. The Reds' Eugenio Suarez doubled the lead with a two-run homer in the seventh to make it 4-1. The Brewers would take the lead on Saladino's slam in the bottom of eighth, only to see it disappear when Suarez hit his second two-run homer of the game. Jeremy Jeffress took the loss for the Brewers.
The two teams are back at it at Miller Park at 7:10 p.m.
