Yesterday's Results

Reds 2, Brewers 1

Jimmy Nelson and Johnny Cueto went head-to-head in a pitcher's duel yesterday. Both pitched eight innings, allowing only one run in the first inning. Nelson was the better of the two, but the team couldn't back him up. Francisco Rodriguez came in for the ninth inning and allowed a run on a wild pitch to give the Reds the lead, and the Brewers couldn't come back in the ninth inning. Elian Herrera would score the only run for the Brewers on an Adam Lind RBI single.
