Hamilton's hit helps Reds beat Brewers 6-5
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Billy Hamilton drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the ninth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds capitalized on four Milwaukee errors for a 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Friday night.

Hamilton lined his single to right off Francisco Rodriguez (2-2), the Brewers' closer pitching in a non-save situation. Reds counterpart Aroldis Chapman had little trouble in the bottom of the ninth with a 1-2-3 inning for his 11th save.

Hamilton's hit spoiled a special night for Milwaukee, which unveiled its Wall of Honor before the game. Hall of Famer Hank Aaron and baseball Commissioner Bud Selig were among dignitaries at Miller Park, where Milwaukee rallied from a four-run deficit in the seventh on Carlos Gomez's RBI double.



The Brewers nearly overcame a sloppy day marked by two errors starter Matt Garza. The second came after Garza fielded a bunt by Homer Bailey after calling off first baseman Mark Reynolds before his hard throw sailed wide of first and into the stands.

Garza put his hands on his hips in frustration after his second error of the game, but the trouble was just starting to brew.

Bailey later scored on Joey Votto's single. Votto came around for a four-run lead after Jay Bruce's double wasn't fielded cleanly by Khris Davis, who was charged with an error.

No such luck in the seventh. After Davis' homer, Bailey allowed two singles before Sam LeCure took over on the mound. Scooter Gennett followed with a solid RBI single to right before Jonathan Lucroy drove in another run on his 28th birthday by beating out a hard chopper to third.

The animated Gomez followed with his game-tying double. Just before the pitch, Gomez appeared as if he was talking to himself after sending two hard cuts foul deep down the left-field line.
