Milwaukee Brewers Team Report - April 28

Postby WebHamster » Wed Apr 28, 2004 1:01 pm

(Sports Network) - Fresh off a ninth-inning comeback win, the Brewers will look to complete a two-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park tonight.

Bill Hall's pinch-hit, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Brewers to a 9-8 victory Tuesday. Chad Moeller became the first Brewer to hit for the cycle in 13 years, as he ended 4-for-5 with four RBI for the Brewers, who have won three of four.

Paul Molitor was the last Brewer to post the cycle on May 15, 1991 against the Minnesota Twins. The Brewers are now 5-0 all-time when a player hits for the cycle.

Geoff Jenkins and Wes Helms tallied two hits each in the winning effort. Junior Spivey added a solo homer in the victory.

Jeff Bennett (1-0) got the final out of the top of the ninth and earned the win for the Brewers, who have won three straight and eight of nine against the Reds.

Milwaukee starting pitcher Doug Davis allowed three runs on four hits in five innings. He struck out five and walked four.

The Brewers will rely on 27-year-old righthander Matt Kinney to get the job done on the hill tonight. Kinney is winless (0-2) in four starts this season, including a tough luck no-decision against St. Louis last week. The Bangor, ME native surrendered just six hits and a run over 6 1/3 innings, while fanning four and walking one.

Kinney has tallied a 1-1 mark with a 6.12 ERA in four games versus the Reds.

This is the first series between these teams this season. Milwaukee won the 2003 season set, 10-8, including a 4-5 mark at Miller Park. The Reds have been successful at Miller Park since the start of the 2002 campaign, going 13-6.
