Brewers Beat Reds 12-9



The Milwaukee Brewers have a shot at their first winning season in 13 years. Carlos Lee and Bill Hall are two big reasons why.

Lee drove in two runs to match his career high with 113 RBI, and Milwaukee defeated the Cincinnati Reds 12-9 Monday night. A total of 12 runs were scored in the seventh and eighth innings.

"It was wild, all right," Brewers manager Ned Yost said.

After Cincinnati scored twice in the eighth for a 9-7 lead, Milwaukee rallied for five runs in the bottom half to reach 78 victories for the first time since 1997. The Brewers (78-78) are seeking their first winning season since 1992.

"It definitely adds to the excitement," said Hall, who is 13-for-23 in the past six games. "We're all excited about this opportunity. We haven't had it here in so long. I feel great for Geoff Jenkins and Ben Sheets after all the hard times, and to finally have a chance for a winning season and go home happy for a change."

Hall led off the eighth with a home run, his 17th, to cut the deficit to one. Hall finished 4-for-4 with two RBI. He also went 4-for-4 with two RBI against St. Louis last Friday.

"He's really had a great season for himself," Yost said. "From where he's come from last year to this year, it would be hard pressed if you think about it to find a more improved player in this league."
