Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game
Brandon Phillips, for I think the third game in a row. The Reds only had two hits, but one of them was a home run by BP. Honorable mentions go to Joey Votto and Aroldis Chapman.
- Mike Leake pitched pretty well for the Reds, but did give up a few hits. Unfortunately, a few of those hits were home runs. Like the one Prince Fielder hit in the second inning. Brewers lead, 1-0.
- The Reds were facing a lineup of scrubs and a no-name pitcher in Marco Estrada, so it was a virtual certainty that they were going to struggle. They did briefly take the lead in the fourth inning when Joey Votto walked and Brandon Phillips golfed a home run from one knee. And that was pretty much that. Reds lead, 2-1.
- Ryan Braun then immediately homered in the bottom of the inning. Game tied, 2-2.
- Leake pitched seven innings, and Logan Ondrusek came in to pitch the eighth. Then he promptly gave up a home run to Rickie Weeks, completing the home-runs-by-good-Brewers-players trifecta. Brewers win, 3-2.
- Joey Votto and Ryan Braun are the only two players to reach base in every game this season. Votto's streak is at 24, and Braun's is at 23, which ties Robin Yount for the franchise record.
- Rickie Weeks has 95 career home runs. 15 of them are against the Reds, the most of any team.
