MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of a homer on the final play of the game Monday night to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 win over Cincinnati at Miller Park. With a runner on first, Votto belted a 2-2 fastball from Francisco Rodriguez to deep center. Gomez jumped at the wall, reached over the yellow line, and made the catch to preserve the Brewers’ fourth win in their last 13 games. Kyle Lohse won his fourth straight decision, giving up three runs on nine hits in six-and-two-thirds innings with a walk and no strikeouts. Lohse has not lost since May 30th, and is now 5-6 on the year. Rodriguez earned his ninth save. Homer Bailey, coming off his second career no-hitter, gave up four runs on 10 hits in five-and-two thirds’ frames. The loss dropped him to 5-7. Milwaukee scored all its runs in the first three innings on R-B-I doubles from Jean Segura and Rickie Weeks, and a two-run shot by Jonathan Lucroy – his third homer in the last three games. Segura went 3 for 3. He continues to lead the National League in hits with 113, six more than second-place Votto. Chris Heisey hit a solo blast for the Reds, who’ve lost three of their lastd four. The Brewers and Reds play again tonight at Miller Park. Right-hander Wily Peralta is scheduled to start against Reds’ left-hander Tony Cingrani. Pregame on WHBL begins at 6:35.
