MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Mark Reynolds singled with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to give the Milwaukee Brewers their first walk-off victory of the year, 6-5 over the New York Yankees at Miller Park on Sunday afternoon. Francisco Rodriguez blew his first save opportunity in 16 chances when Mark Teixeira homered to tie the game as the Yankees were down to their final strike. It was the first time K-Rod was scored upon in 19 innings this season. He ended up winning his first decision when Rickie Weeks doubled, ran to third on a wild pitch, and scored on Reynolds' second hit of the day. Weeks went 3 for 5 with two R-B-I's, as the Brewers out-hit the Yanks 12-11. Teixeira went 2 for 4 and scored three times for New York. Kelly Johnson and Yangervis Solarte each drove in a pair. Adam Warren took the loss. He's now 1-2. Brewers' third baseman Aramis Ramirez sat out the game with a strained hamstring he suffered on Saturday night. He's expected to go on the disabled list. Before yesterday's game, the Brewers honored Yankees' star Derek Jeter, who's retiring this year. The team gave him a golden bat and a ten-thousand-dollar donation to his "Turn-Two Foundation." After taking two of three from the Yankees, Milwaukee is now tied with San Francisco for the best record in the National League at 24-14. The Brewers are off today, and will host Pittsburgh Tuesday night.
