Yesterday's Results

Brewers 4, Reds 3

Jimmy Nelson recovered from his rough start before the All-Star Break, pitching six innings and allowing three runs. It kept the Brewers even for most of the game, as they hit three solo home runs in the first few innings. Jonathan Lucroy ended up being the hero of the day, hitting two in the game, including a solo home run in the ninth to send the Brewers home winners.
