Brew­ers pre­vail in slugfest

The Nation - - SPORT -

Mil­wau­kee main­tained their push for base­ball’s play­offs with a 13-12 win over the Reds af­ter a wild game in Cincin­nati.

The Brew­ers banged out 22 hits and scored 13 runs – and it was still barely enough to beat their Na­tional League Cen­tral ri­vals in 10 in­nings yes­ter­day (Thai­land time).

Their pitch­ers suf­fered badly, how­ever – starter Freddy Per­alta gave up five runs in 4 1/3 in­nings and Josh Hader gave up four earned runs in less than a full in­ning.

The Brew­ers fi­nally put the Reds away in the 10th. Mil­wau­kee (74-60) moves to within a half game of the divi­sion-lead­ing Car­di­nals – who lost to the Pi­rates – for the top wild­card spot in the NL.
