MILWAUKEE -- Forget about his prodigious speed -- Billy Hamilton won a game with his bat Friday night. Bruce Matthews Jersey . No need to worry about running out a hit with the way Cincinnatis leadoff man lined his single to right in the ninth off a fastball from stalwart reliever Francisco Rodriguez. Hamiltons hit allowed Zack Cozart to score from second, and Aroldis Chapman shut down the Milwaukee Brewers in the bottom of the ninth to give the Reds a 6-5 win. "Somehow my hands were quicker than I thought they would (be) getting on top of the fastball and it was in," Hamilton said. "It was just a big win for us." Made it easy to forget how the Reds blew a four-run lead in the seventh. Hamilton added his 25th steal of the season in the ninth for good measure. Hes second in the National League in steals behind Dee Gordon of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was left stranded at third, but his only hit of the night off Rodriguez (2-2) was much more important. The Reds feel like they are building momentum after taking two straight from Los Angeles. "That was a big comeback win. Its something that we really havent done much of this year," said starter Homer Bailey, who gave up four runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. "So I think once you start picking up those kinds of wins, and coming back, it becomes contagious." Jonathan Broxton (2-0) tossed a scoreless eighth before Chapman struck out two in the ninth for his 11th save. Hamiltons hit spoiled a special night for Milwaukee, which unveiled its Wall of Honor before the game. Hall of Famer Hank Aaron and baseball Commissioner Bud Selig were among dignitaries at Miller Park. The Brewers rallied with four runs in the seventh to tie it at 5 on Carlos Gomezs RBI double. But earlier mistakes ultimately caught up to Milwaukee, which tied a season-high with four errors. Starter Matt Garza had two errors alone on errant throws. The second came after Garza fielded a bunt by Bailey before his hard throw sailed wide of first and into the stands. The right-hander put his hands on his hips in frustration, but the trouble was just starting to brew. "It hurt him today," manager Ron Roenicke said. "Too bad because he had really good stuff today." Bailey later scored on Joey Vottos single. Votto came around for a four-run lead after Jay Bruces double wasnt fielded cleanly by Khris Davis, who was charged with an error. Garza went seven innings and allowed seven hits and five runs, including one earned. But the errors still irritated him after the game. "The guys battled back and we lost it late, but we should have never been in that spot," Garza said. "My stuff was too good tonight to do something dumb like that." Davis, a young left fielder, atoned for his miscue with his shot in the seventh off the black Caterpillar ad affixed to the second deck above right field. Came on a night, too, when he posed for a picture with the iconic Aaron, who finished his stellar 23-year career in 1976 as a designated hitter for the Brewers in old County Stadium. Bailey had looked well on his way to winning a fifth straight decision after allowing just one run and three hits through six innings. He even wiggled out of a bases-loaded jam with two outs in the fourth by getting Irving Falu to pop out. No such luck in the seventh. After Davis homer, Bailey allowed two singles before Sam LeCure took over on the mound. After Scooter Gennetts RBI single, Jonathan Lucroy drove in another run on his 28th birthday by beating out a hard chopper to third before Gomez hit his double. NOTES: RHP Mat Latos will make his season debut Saturday for Cincinnati. Latos will be activated after spending the first two months of the season recovering from surgeries on his right elbow and left knee. Latos will bump Tony Cingrani (2-7) from the rotation, and manager Bryan Price said he wasnt sure yet whether the left-hander would be demoted to Triple-A Louisville or sent to the bullpen. ... Milwaukee plans to activate LHP Tom Gorzelanny before Saturdays game. The reliever began the season on the DL following off-season shoulder surgery. ... RHP Yovani Gallardo (4-4) will start Saturday for the Brewers. Tajae Sharpe Jersey . -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he isnt going to change what he does on the field. Corey Davis Jersey . The club was unable to retain hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who is bound for Atlanta. Seitzer replaces Greg Walker, who was assisted by Scott Fletcher this season as the Braves finished 79-83.BERLIN -- Hamburger SV ended its seven-game losing streak in the Bundesliga by beating Borussia Dortmund 3-0 on new coach Mirko Slomkas debut on Saturday. Pierre Michel Lasogga set up Petr Jiraceks 42nd-minute headed opener and scored in the 58th. Hakan Calhanoglu completed the win with an improbable 45-meter free kick in injury time. Slomka took over last Monday from Bert van Marwijk, who was fired after the side lost its previous eight games in all competitions. "The result is a bit flattering," Slomka said. "But we did well in defence over long periods and the team can be proud of these points. Today was one of 13 (remaining) games and well never stop working." Hamburg climbed one spot into the relegation playoff place, overtaking Freiburg, which lost 4-2 at home to Augsburg. Sandro Wagner scored late for Hertha Berlin to win 2-1 at Stuttgart, which has lost seven in succession. Hoffenheim came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Borussia Moenchengladbach, and 10-man Nuremberg beat Eintracht Braunschweig 2-1 in a game that featured three missed penalties. Second-place Bayer Leverkusens alarming slump continued in the late game with a 3-1 defeat at Wolfsburg, which stretched its winning run to four games. Bas Dost got the home side off the mark in the 13th, before Leverkusen winger Sidney Sam equalized just before the break. Luiz Gustavo restored Wolfsburgs lead in the 58th and Ricardo Rodriguez made it 3-1 on the rebound in the 73rd after Bernd Leno saved his initial penalty attempt. It was Leverkusens seventh defeat in nine games across all competitions, and means Bayern Munich can stretch its lead to 19 points with a win at Hannover on Sunday. "We have to try something different," Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia said. The home side started well in Hamburg, restricting opportunities for Dortmund, which visits Zenit St. Petersburg in the Champions League on Tuesday. Jiracek beat two defenders to meet Lasoggas cross at the far ppost, after the Hamburg striker did well to keep the ball in play. Rishard Matthews Jersey. Calhanoglu won the ball from Nuri Sahin and Firat Arslan sent Lasogga through to finish with aplomb past Roman Weidenfeller. Rene Adler made a host of good saves as Hamburg kept a clean sheet for the first time after 14 games. His side conceded at least three in each of its previous seven games including the 5-0 German Cup defeat to Bayern Munich. "Its so nice to be rewarded like this at the end of the week," said Adler, who was criticized after last weeks 4-2 defeat to Braunschweig. Calhanoglu completed a memorable afternoon when he belted his free kick from near the centre circle over Weidenfeller. The Dortmund goalkeeper retreated but was unable to keep the ball out as it dipped in. Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp was philosophical about his sides sixth league defeat. "Theres that old saying that a good horse will only jump as high as it needs to. I hate that saying. I reckon a horse should jump as high as it can," Klopp said. "Today we looked to see how high we needed to jump. And as we realized that it wasnt so high, we were behind." Freiburg was left fuming after Christian Guenter was booked for diving in the 86th when it looked like he should have been awarded a penalty. Augsburg was leading 3-2 at the time. The home sides protests were ignored and Andre Hahn completed the scoring in injury time, leaving Freiburg one point below Hamburg. Hertha defender Levan Kobiashvili scored in the fifth in Stuttgart, making the 36-year-old the clubs oldest goal-scorer in the Bundesliga, only for Arthur Boka to equalize with a rocket from outside the penalty area before the break. Wagner scored with a header in the 87th, and was sent off in injury time with two yellow cards in as many minutes. "Were incredibly disappointed," Stuttgart coach Thomas Schneider said. "The team showed it was alive. They threw everything into it." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
