CINCINNATI (AP) -- Billy Hamilton dashed home on All-Star Jonathan Lucroy's passed ball with two outs in the ninth inning Sunday, giving the Cincinnati Reds a 1-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
   
The speedy Hamilton drew a two-out walk from Tyler Thornburgh (3-3). Left-hander Will Smith relieved and walked Joey Votto.
   
Hamilton stole third with Jay Bruce hitting, setting up the game-winning play. It was originally scored as a wild pitch, then changed to a passed ball.
   
Tony Cingrani (2-2) pitched a perfect ninth for the win.
   
Cincinnati starter Dan Straily and Milwaukee's Zach Davies each pitched seven impressive innings.
