Brewers Fall in Extra Innings Against Reds


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Drew Stubbs hit a solo homer in the 10th inning and Joey Votto drove in four runs to lead the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.

Stubbs hit a sinker from Sergio Mitre (0-1) over the center-field wall to put the Reds ahead for good. Cincinnati previously squandered leads of 4-0 and 6-4.

Cincinnati got a season-high 15 hits, a day after managing just two in a 3-2 loss to the Brewers.

Aroldis Chapman (2-0) got out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth using 101 mph fastballs and pitched around a two-out single in the ninth. Francisco Cordero pitched a perfect 10th for his fourth save in as many chances.
