Milwaukee Brewers fall 7-6 in tense game with Cincinnati Reds
MILWAUKEE — Joey Votto scored the go-ahead run in the ninth after an inning-ending double play was overturned, and the Cincinnati Reds snapped their 12-game losing streak with a tense 7-6 win on Saturday over the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Reds completed their comeback from a 6-1 deficit when umpires ruled after the review that infielder Scooter Gennett didn’t have his foot on second while trying to turn a double play on Adam Duvall’s bouncer.
The review came after manager Bryan Price, who was out of challenges, spoke to crew chief Jim Joyce. Cincinnati scratched their way for the go-ahead run off typically tough reliever Jeremy Jeffress (1-1).
Duvall had a three-run homer in the seventh to tie the game at 6.
A wild afternoon featured six hit batters and the ejection of Reds starter Alfredo Simon in the fifth for hitting counterpart Chase Anderson with a pitch.
Blake Wood (4-1) tossed two scoreless innings for the win and Tony Cingrani picked up his fourth save.
