Reds Blow Late Lead In Loss To The Brewers

Last updated on Thursday, August 9, 2012

(Milwaukee, WI) - The Milwaukee Brewers scored twice in the bottom of the eighth inning to pull out a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds to complete a three-game series sweep.

The Reds jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the third when Dioner Navarro hit a two-run home run, his first in a Cincinnati uniform, off Brewers starter Randy Wolf.

Mat Latos cruised for the Reds, allowing a solo shot by Carlos Gomez in the sixth and leaving the game after allowing a run on three hits over seven innings.

Milwaukee did its damage in the eighth off recently-acquired Cincinnati reliever Jonathan Broxton.

Gomez tied the game with an RBI double and scored on Ryan Braun's go-ahead double.

The Reds' lead in the NL Central is down to two and-a-half games over Pittsburgh after the Pirates beat Arizona at home.
