Brewers salvage series finale from Reds

The Cincinnati Reds continued their first-inning success, but the Milwaukee Brewers scored late to capture a 5-4 win Wednesday afternoon.


A collection of base hits staked the Reds to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but Ryan Braun's 15th homer of the season knotted things up at two. The Reds would get single tallies in the second and third innings to make it 4-2, forcing starter Jhoulys Chacin out of the game. The bullpen was lights out after that and the Brewers took the lead in the fifth inning thanks to a solo homer by Keston Hiura and a two-run single by Yasmani Grandal. Josh Hader and Freddy Peralta wrapped things up for the Brewers, striking out seven of the final nine Reds players.


Currently in third place in the National League Central, the Brewers could flip the script this weekend when they welcome to the division-leading Chicago Cubs to Miller Park for a three-game set Friday.
