Brewes Sweep Reds in Extra Inning Win

From Sportsline.com:

Rickie Weeks found redemption for his late mental error with his bat.

Weeks' long line drive gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 6-5 victory in 13 innings Wednesday night, completing a three-game sweep of the Reds.

It made up for Weeks' fielding gaffe in the top half of the inning, when he allowed Juan Castro to go home from second base on a routine sacrifice bunt to give the Reds a 5-4 lead.

"That just shows you what kind of team we have," Weeks said. "Redemption or not, you have got to come up there with the situation on the line and try to deliver."

It was the Brewers' ninth walk-off victory of the season, and 16th win in their last at-bat.

"Believe me, we don't want to be in this situation, but sometimes it just happens," Weeks said. "We have to go out there and try to put our best foot forward and try to squeak those wins out."

Geremi Gonzalez (2-0) earned the victory for Milwaukee.
