MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Cincinnati Reds 2-1 Thursday night at Miller Park – and the Crew might have lost All-Star centerfielder Carlos Gomez for a while. He left in the fourth inning after he slammed into the wall on a sensational catch that robbed Brandon Phillips of an extra-base hit. Gomez will have an M-R-I this morning to see if the injury is any worse. He was hurt earlier this season when he slammed into the same wall while making a highlight-reel catch against Atlanta. Joey Votto had the game-winning hit for Cincinnati last night – a solo homer in the sixth inning that broke a 1-1 tie. Zack Cozart drove in the Reds’ only other run with an R-B-I single. Khris Davis provided Milwaukee’s only offense with a solo shot. Kyle Lohse took the loss despite another quality start. He gave up two runs – one earned – on five hits and four walks in seven innings. Lohse fell to 8-8. Tony Cingrani struck out nine Brewers in six-and-a-third innings for the win. Aroldis Chapman earned his 30th save. Cincy won its fifth straight game – and Reds’ pitchers threw at least 10 strikeouts in each of those contests, one short of a team record set in April. Milwaukee fell back into sole possession of last place in the National League Central, a half-game behind the idle Chicago Cubs. The Brewers and Reds play again tonight at Miller Park. Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny faces Reds’ right-hander Mike Leake. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
