Hamilton's hit helps Reds beat Brewers 6-5Submitted: 06/13/2014
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.

TOMAH - Air Force veteran Jason Bishop says he has struggled in vain to find chronic pain relief at several Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals, including one in Tomah.

Bishop says the VA hospitals have offered him treatment, including prescriptions for narcotics, but few long-term solutions.

Bishop was one of thousands of veterans to receive the narcotic as well as a prescription for a benzodiazepine, a class of psychoactive drugs that act as a tranquilizer. Experts say combining the two raises risk of injury and death.

The Tomah hospital is at the center of multiple probes after reports of narcotic overprescribing practices and retaliatory behavior surfaced in January, allegations already affirmed by a preliminary report. U.S. House and Senate committees are to hold a joint field hearing Monday in Tomah.
