Brewers Blow Another One In What Is Becoming A Common Theme

From Adam McCalvy at MLB.com:
The Brewers made a flurry of acquisitions on Friday, but they suffered the same old result.

Ryan Freel hit an eighth-inning RBI double for the Reds, who rallied from a three-run deficit to a 4-3 win over the Brewers at Miller Park. Milwaukee lost for the 12th time in its last 16 games and dropped seven games behind the Reds in the National League Wild Card standings.

Jeff Cirillo hit a two-run double and Prince Fielder added an RBI single as the Brewers built a three-run, first-inning lead on the Reds and Eric Milton (7-6). But Cincinnati pushed ahead against reliever Matt Wise (5-5), who recorded the first two outs of the seventh before pinch-hitter Chris Denorfia singled and Freel knocked the game-winner down the left-field line.

The Reds got a run in the second inning and another in the fifth against Brewers starter Tomo Ohka. They tied the game at 3 in the sixth, when Ken Griffey, Jr. hit an RBI double off reliever Rick Helling that would have been a go-ahead hit had Brewers catcher Damian Miller not absorbed a crushing blow from burly Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, who tried, but failed, to score from first base.
