Bailey, Reds beat Brewers 9-1Submitted: 08/18/2013
Bailey, Reds beat Brewers 9-1
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Homer Bailey didn't let the Milwaukee Brewers' earlier success bother him one bit.

Bailey allowed one run and three hits in eight innings, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Brewers 9-1 on Sunday.

Bailey (8-10) won his third straight decision by beating a team that has given him trouble in the past. He improved his career mark against Milwaukee to 2-7 in 14 starts with his first win in three starts against the Brewers this season.

``For some reason this team has usually done pretty well against me,'' Bailey said. ``I never really thought about it, so I just kind of went out there and tried to pitch a little bit.''

He did more than a little bit against the Brewers, thanks to good fastball location and a tough curveball.

``He's got incredible stuff,'' Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett said. ``He was getting ahead for the most part. When guys with good stuff get ahead, it makes it that much harder.''

Gennett's double in the second, and Khris Davis' solo shot in the fifth and infield single in the seventh were the only hits for the Brewers.

``We didn't have that timely hit,'' Gennett said. ``He was down for the most part, in and out of the zone, working in and out of the zone with pretty much all of his offspeed pitches, which makes it quite tough to hit.''

Bailey walked one and struck out eight, including Juan Francisco three times.

``Since we have seen these guys so many times, I am starting to get a better feel for them,'' Bailey said after earning his first win at Miller Park.

Bailey had been 0-3 in five career starts in Milwaukee.

The Reds, who lost 2-0 on Saturday night, batted around in the second inning as an erratic Wily Peralta (8-13) allowed five runs. Cincinnati sent 10 men to the plate in the fifth and tacked on four more runs.

``You play for the big inning, and if not, you play for one,'' Reds manager Dusty Baker said. ``To get big innings like that is huge.''

The victory sent the Reds back to Cincinnati with a successful seven-game road trip. They swept a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs before heading to Milwaukee.

``Main thing, we had a pretty good road trip, 5-2,'' Baker said. ``We will be happy with what we got.''

Peralta gave up singles to the first four batters, capped by Ryan Hanigan's two-run hit. A walk to Shin-Soo Choo loaded the bases for Joey Votto, and a passed ball added another run.

The Brewers walked Votto intentionally and set up Peralta to face Brandon Phillips, who was 1-12 against the right-hander. Phillips' two-run single foiled the move and gave Bailey a 5-0 lead in the second.

Peralta settled down for the next two innings, but walked Phillips to start the fifth. He advanced on a wild pitch and took third on a fly ball to the warning track in right. Chris Heisey ended Peralta's 26th start of the season with a run-scoring single.

Peralta seemed puzzled trying to explain his inconsistency.

``I don't know,'' he said. ``Today was a tough day. I've got to figure out a better command with the fastball. I didn't have that much command of my pitches.''

Tyler Thornburg took over, but struggled just as much as Peralta. The Reds batted around for the second time and capitalized on Thornburg's wildness. He issued four walks, including two with the bases loaded, and allowed a run-scoring single to Hanigan, who had two hits and three RBIs.

Alfredo Simon pitched the ninth for the Reds.

Bailey struggled a bit after throwing his second-career no-hitter with a 3-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on July 2. He lost the next four starts, but turned it around with two consecutive wins.

Peralta was totally unlike the last time he faced the Reds at Miller Park. In what might have been the best start of his first full season in the majors, he threw a three-hitter on July 9 in Milwaukee's 2-0 win.

But he allowed seven runs and eight hits, walked four and struck out four over 4 1-3 innings on Sunday. He slipped to 1-3 in four starts this season against the Reds.

``Last start we faced him, we did well against him,'' Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of Bailey. ``He's got great stuff, and he's the same thing as Wily. When he's got command, and he (Bailey) had command of all his pitches, he's going to be very difficult to hit.''

THREE LAKES - A public library will do just about anything to help out its loyal patrons. But what happens when the library needs help?

The Demmer Memorial Library in Three Lakes needs help storing books during an upcoming renovation. Over 3,000 books need to be cleared out of the library during the construction period and library card holders will get the chance to check out up to 100 books for an entire year.

The idea of book babysitting made perfect sense to library director, Erica Brewster.

"If we could get a hundred people to check out 100 books, that would be a third of our collection that we wouldn't have to physically pickup and move and put in a new location," said Brewster.
