The Brewers opened up their final week of the season with game one of a three-game set in Cincinnati to take on the Reds. The Brewers were looking to extend their season high, 4-game winning streak, but fall in game one 6-3.
The Brewers were the first to get on the board tonight as Jedd Gyorko hit a solo homerun. That was his 9th homerun of the season.
Brandon Woodruff took the mound for the Brewers tonight and pitched well for 5+ innings. It wasn't until the bottom of the 6th, with a runner on 3rd and two outs, that Woodruff gave up a two-run homerun to Eugenio Suarez to give the Reds a 2-1 lead that they would not look back from.
In the 8th inning, with Drew Rasmussen on the mound for the Brewers, Rasmussen would allow 4 runs on 3 hits. Rasmussen allowed two homeruns in that frame.
In the 9th inning, Jace Peterson was able to cut into the Reds lead with a two-run homerun to make it a 6-3 game. That is all the Brewers would get in the last inning as they fell to the Reds 6-3.
The Brewers and Reds will face off in game two tomorrow night. First pitch is set for 5:40PM.
