MILWAUKEE (AP) — Gennett hit a tiebreaking solo homer with two out in the ninth Luis Valbuena Jersey , helping the Cincinnati Reds beat Milwaukee 9-7 and prevent the Brewers from gaining ground in the National League playoff race.The 28-year-old Gennett played for Milwaukee for four seasons before he was claimed by Cincinnati off waivers prior to last season. The second baseman set career highs with 27 homers and 97 RBIs for his hometown Reds last year, and then made the All-Star team this season.Gennett drove a first-pitch slider from left-hander Dan Jennings (4-5) into the first row of the right-field bleachers for his 19th homer.“To run around the bases and look at everybody I’ve played with for a while, it’s a little better,” Gennett said. “I can’t hit lefties, right?“It’s a situation I look forward to now, when they bring in a lefty just to face me. Before I was always looking over my shoulder, seeing if they were going to take me out.”Cincinnati added an insurance run on Mason Williams‘ RBI double against Corey Knebel.Milwaukee had tied the game in the eighth on Jonathan Schoop’s first career pinch-hit homer and Ryan Braun’s RBI double. The Brewers remained three games back of the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs, who lost 2-1 at Detroit.Raisel Iglesias (2-1), who yielded Braun’s tying double http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-chris-young-jersey , escaped a jam in the ninth for the win. The Brewers put two runners on with two out, but Keon Broxton struck out swinging.Gennett finished with two hits and three RBIs as last-place Cincinnati won for the fourth time in five games. Billy Hamilton had two hits and scored two runs.The Reds rallied after the Brewers jumped on Sal Romano for four runs in the first inning. Erik Kratz had a two-out RBI single, and Orlando Arcia followed with a two-run single.Cincinnati responded with three in the third, helped by an error on right fielder Eric Thames. Romano’s bloop single drove in Dilson Herrera, and Romano scored after Thames bobbled Phillip Ervin’s hit. Gennett added a sacrifice fly against Junior Guerra.Travis Shaw hit his 26th homer in the bottom half, but Cincinnati added four more in the fourth.The big inning included a ball that hit second base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt and went for an RBI single for Ervin. Gennett’s dribbler past the mound scored a run and a passed ball allowed another run to score.“We had two or three breaks there,” Reds manager Jim Riggleman said.All four runs were unearned after third baseman Mike Moustakas’ throwing error resulted in the first run of the inning. Moustakas fielded a grounder by Brandon Dixon and had time to cut down Williams at the plate but bounced his throw in the dirt.“That was one of the stranger innings you’ll ever see,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “If the ball doesn’t hit the umpire it’s a one-run inning. They get three runs after a ground ball hit right at one of our players. And then the ball didn’t leave the infield.”TRAINERS ROOMReds: OF Scott Schebler (right shoulder) was scheduled to continue his rehab with Double-A Pensacola. He could join the Reds in Chicago for the opener of their four-game series against the Cubs on Thursday.Brewers: RHP Zach Davies (right shoulder) will make a rehab start for Double-A Biloxi on Wednesday and a decision on his status will be made soon. He has been on the disabled list since June 1. General manager David Stearns said it was fair to consider Davies “a wild card” at this point in the season. … RHP Joakim Soria threw 25 pitches off the mound and could return by the weekend, according to manager Craig Counsell.UP NEXTReds: RHP Robert Stephenson (0-1 Cam Bedrosian Jersey , 6.75 ERA) will make his third start of the season in the series finale against Milwaukee. He went 6-0 with a 1.23 ERA in his last seven starts at Triple-A Louisville.Brewers: Freddy Peralta (5-4, 4.48 ERA) made a quality start at St. Louis on Friday but the Brewers lost 5-2. MILWAUKEE — Even though he wasn’t able to work out a deal for Reds right-hander Matt Harvey, Milwaukee Brewers general manager David Stearns is still confident in his team’s starting pitchers as the Brewers try to lock down their first playoff berth since 2011.“This is a group that has pitched competitively throughout the vast majority of the season and we think they will continue to do so,” said Stearns, who wouldn’t directly confirm the many reports saying Milwaukee had claimed Harvey off waivers.Milwaukee’s starters got off to a rough start this month, posting a 5.58 ERA through the first 15 games of August. They’ve turned it around of late, recording quality starts in four of the last five games — a streak that could reach five of six if right-hander Jhoulys Chacin stays true to his recent form Saturday when he starts game two of the Brewers’ three-game set with the Pirates at Miller Park.Article continues below ...Chacin (13-4, 3.58 ERA) has been one of the Brewers’ more reliable players this season, as well as one of the better pitchers in the National League — especially over the last month. Since getting knocked around early in a 21-5 rout at Los Angeles to open August http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-blake-wood-jersey , he is 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA over his last three starts, holding opposing batters to a .191 batting average. He has also cleared at least six innings in each of those three outings. The Brewers would benefit greatly from another deep outing by Chacin Saturday after playing 15 innings Friday night but also because their bullpen has yet to fully recover from a rash of injuries during the second half and the season-long struggles of Corey Knebel. An All-Star a year ago, Knebel has been unable to command his stuff consistently this season, especially his curveball, resulting in a 5.09 ERA. Brewers manager Craig Counsell tried serval options to get him back on track before finally moving him to lower-leverage situations. When that didn’t work, the Brewers made a more drastic move, optioning Knebel to Triple-A Colorado Springs where he could work in a lower-pressure environment.“He wants to pitch better, so we’re trying to figure out a way to help him pitch better,” Counsell said. “This is the track he’ll be on.”Joakim Soria could see some of the ninth-inning work while Knebel gets straightened out. He threw a scoreless eighth inning Friday after coming off the disabled list and had 16 saves this season for the White Sox before he was acquired by the Brewers ahead of the deadline.“He didn’t miss a lot of time with the injury Zack Greinke Jersey , so we feel like we can put him right back into some bigger spots for us,” Counsell said.The Pirates will need some bullpen help, too, Saturday. Manager Clint Hurdle’s relief corps covered 11 innings, with closer Felipe Vasquez tossing two scoreless frames and Stephen Brault adding four more before Clay Holmes gave up three runs in the 15th.Hurdle was already working somewhat shorthanded because Kyle Crick was unavailable.“Crick’s back flared up on him the last game he pitched at home,” Hurdle said. “We talked to him earlier in the day and he felt it so we wanted to stay away from him.”Like Chacin, Pittsburgh’s Saturday starter, Jameson Tallion, has been working deep into games lately Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , getting through at least six innings in seven of his last eight starts.Taillon (9-9, 3.58 ERA) has faced Milwaukee three times this season, allowing five earned runs while striking out 18 over 16 innings and going 1-1 with a 2.81 ERA in those three games. Taillon is 2-4 with a 3.42 ERA in nine career starts against the Brewers.Chacin is 2-4 with a 4.03 ERA in nine career starts against the Pirates, and he is 0-1 with a 1.53 ERA in three starts against them this season.
