Brewers 5, Reds 3
Not a lot to say about this one. Pete Mackanin said he thought about pinch-hitting for David Ross in the sixth, but, with Scott Hatteberg unavailable and Josh Hamilton not here, Mackanin thought it was too early.
I haven't heard how Homer Bailey did in his simulated game today -- I honestly forgot to ask -- but you'd think he'd start the next time the fifth spot comes up. Kirk Saarloos was OK after a shaky first -- four innings, three runs -- but I don't think he's going to be in the rotation next year.
