Bizarro inning makes it 4-3

It's a 4-3 game. Brewers scored two in the top of the sixth. The bottom of inning was the odd part.

The Reds loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth. Ryan Freel reached on an error. Brandon Phillips and Adam Dunn singled.

Jeff Conine hit floating line drive toward second. It went off Rickie Weeks' glove and into center field. Freel scored on the play and Phillips and Dunn advanced.

But Conine was called out – apparently second base ump Larry Poncino called the infield-fly rule.

Capuano got Griffey to ground back to him for the second out.

That brought up Edwin Encarnacion, who was mired in 0-for-22 skid. Milwaukee sent in Greg Aquino to face Encarnacion. He lined a single into center to score two and make it a 4-3 game.

It was misplayed by weeks. he's horrible at 2nd. it would have been routine if Phillips had been out there and we would have screamed if the IFR was not called.
