Reds 4, Brewers 3 (10 innings)

It took 10 innings, but the Reds knocked off the Crew today 4-3 in 10 innings. Too be honest, I had a fantasy football draft and didn't catch the game until it mattered the most in the 10th inning. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee's 2nd favorite son, gave away the game to a Dustin McDonald double over his head Tatum to score the winning run. Then it was time for the dramatics...could the Crew stars beat their former closer, Francisco Cordero in walk off fashion?

No, same old Brewers, and same old Ryan Braun striking out when it matters most. Yes, I know he vaulted the Brewers into the Wild Card, but what has he done since? Of course, Brewer MVP Prince Fielder got a base knock, but with Cameron and McGehee behind him, there wasn't any hope. McGehee struck out, and Cameron barely made contact the ball making it an easy out and the 27th save for Coco.

MVP: Prince Fielder 2 hits, 2 RBI
LVP: Casey McGehee 0/4, 4 LOB
