A Brewers sweep for pride

by

Three weeks ago, the Milwaukee Brewers played a three game series against the Cincinnati Reds that could have vaulted them into the thick of the National League Central Division race.  It didn't go well at the Great American Ballpark and the Crew tumbled badly after that.   On Wednesday afternoon, the Brewers finished off a sweep of the same Reds team that had reeled off 22 wins in 25 games before arriving at MIller Park.   It was a come from behind effort as starter Randy Wolf gave up a two run homer to Dionner Navarro in the third inning.   The Brewers got one back in the 6th on Carlos Gomez's 10th home run of the year.   The rally came against reliever Jonathan Broxton.  After recording two outs in the 8th, Nori Aoki beat out an infield single, stole second and came home on a Gomez single to left that just carried over the shortstop's glove. Ryan Braun ended and 0 for 18 slump with a single to left that scored Gomez for the lead.  John Axford picked up the win in relief as rookie Jim Henderson recorded his second straight save.   The win puts the Brewers at 51-59, still a distant 14 and a half games behind the Reds.  After a day off Thursday, Milwaukee opens a series in Houston Friday night.
