After a crazy back and forth night which saw two different four run innings, Billy Hamilton's ninth inning single which allowed Zack Cozart to score from second helped the Cincinnati Reds sneak by the NL Central leading Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 6-5 on Friday evening at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
The win helped the Reds pull within two games of .500 and gave them their third winning streak of at least three games this year.
"I think the bigger thing is it's three wins in a row against two really good teams," starter Homer Bailey said after six and a third innings allowing four earned runs on six hits while fanning six. "That was a big comeback win. It was something we really haven't done much of this year. I think once you pick up those kinds of wins and coming back, it becomes contagious."
"Great at-bat by Cozart," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "With Cozart leading off with the base hit, it just made more sense for Santiago bunt him over and give us a chance with Billy and Frazier to drive him in there. Billy came up big time."
