Brewers lose to Reds in embarrassing fashion

Yeli hits homer No. 31

The Milwaukee Brewers dropped game 2 of the 4 game set with the Cincinatti Reds on Tuesday with a final score of 5-4. 

Brewers starter Chase Anderson caught some trouble early after giving up a 2-run bomb to Eugenio Suarez giving Cincy a 2-0 lead after one. Milwaukee wouldn't respond until the top half of the fourth inning when Christian Yelich went to the opposite field for a solo shot. It was his MLB-leading 31st of the season.

The next inning Eric Thames would tie up the game at two hitting a solo shot himself. Then Moose would shoot one to right field for a two-run shot in the sixth giving the Crew a 4-2 lead.

Chase Anderson went 5.2 innings, gave up 5 hits, and 2 ER.

Freddy Peralta came on in relief for the Brewers and allowed a solo homer to Yasiel Puig in the bottom of the 7th cutting the lead to just one run. Then in the eighth, the Reds would tie the game with a RBI-double by Joey Votto off of Matt Albers. 

The two teams went to extras as Miulwaukee's defense kept them in this game. A beautiful play by Orlando Arcia at short ended the ninth, and a diving catch by Moose ended the 10th.

But the magic wouldn't last forever. The Reds would end up winning the game in the eleventh after a single from Yasiel Puig with two outs in the inning. Then Jose Iglesias sent a ball down the right field line. A poor throw by Yelich led to a poor fielding play by Thames. Puig would round third and find himself scoring rom first on a play that should have kept him on the bases.
