Brewers Lose to Reds 8-12

From Sportsline.com:

Milwaukee scored two runs in the eighth to make it 12-8. Chad Moeller hit a homer off Matt Belisle (1-0) and Carlos Lee drove in his 16th run of the season with an RBI single. With the bases loaded, reliever Todd Coffey struck out Rickie Weeks and Prince Fielder to end the threat.

"We had Rickie and Prince both up there," Yost said. "Any time you can get the tying run to the plate in a ball game you've done a pretty good job, but the score doesn't really reflect that."

The Brewers scored three each in the second and third to take a 6-2 lead. In between, Reds manager Jerry Narron was thrown out for arguing a call in the third inning.

Narron jumped up and down before being tossed by crew chief Charlie Reliford when Fielder seemed to be pulled off the bag by Weeks' throw on Scott Hatteberg's grounder. Replays appeared to show Fielder came off the bag as the throw arrived.

"I think he ran me for a lack of elevation," Narron deadpanned. "Sometimes I tend to get sarcastic with the umpires and obviously he didn't like that. I really think he ran me because I embarrassed myself by not being able to jump very high."

Bill Hall led the bottom of the third with a homer to left. Later, Ohka, who was 1-for-18 against the Reds in his career, hit an RBI single through a drawn in infield and Brady Clark added his second sacrifice fly to make it 6-2.

But Milwaukee played sluggish after coming off a nine-game road trip where the Brewers went 3-6.

"It was ugly from the get go," Brewers catcher Damian Miller said. "We played like we were tired."
