Hall goes 4-for-5, Lee completes Brewers rally with ninth-inning single

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

MILWAUKEE -- One Brewers All-Star bailed out the other one Monday.

Carlos Lee singled home the winning run in the ninth inning after Derrick Turnbow blew a save, and Milwaukee pulled off the final rally of a seesaw game to beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-7.

"That's why you call it a team," Lee said. "You know, everybody goes through slumps. We're going to be 100 percent behind him."

Bill Hall homered and had four hits for the Brewers, who snapped a three-game skid.

Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 554th homer and added a go-ahead double off Turnbow in the top of the ninth, putting Cincinnati ahead 7-6. But winner Matt Wise (5-4) retired Austin Kearns with the bases loaded to end the inning, and Todd Coffey (3-3) failed to get an out in the bottom half.

Rickie Weeks led off with a single and went to third on Hall's single off the right-field fence. Geoff Jenkins blooped a tying single to center and Lee followed with a soft single to right, sending the Reds to their third consecutive defeat.

"The ball couldn't have been thrown out to the outfield and landed in a better spot than Jenkins' hit," Cincinnati manager Jerry Narron said.

It was Milwaukee's 22nd comeback victory in 26 home wins.

"I went in there with a job to do and I dropped the ball," Coffey said.

Trailing by two in the ninth, the Reds came back against Turnbow. He walked Jason LaRue and Felipe Lopez before Adam Dunn's one-out single cut it to 6-5 and left runners at the corners.

Griffey drove a 1-0 pitch to left-center for a two-run double, putting Cincinnati ahead. It also gave him 1,586 RBI, surpassing Hall of Famers Harmon Killebrew and Rogers Hornsby for 25th place on the career list.

"My slider just hasn't been good for more than a couple of series now," Turnbow said. "One pitch, I have it. Then, I don't have it. I'm just a little off mechanically right now."

Griffey's 18th homer of the season, off Brian Shouse in the seventh, gave the Reds a 4-3 lead.

The Brewers responded in the bottom half. Hall's double off starter Aaron Harang put runners at second and third with none out. Kent Mercker relieved, and Jenkins hit an RBI grounder to Lopez at shortstop. His throwing error allowed a second run to score, making it 5-4 Brewers.

Lee added an RBI single through a drawn-in infield.

Brewers starter Dave Bush allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings, striking out five.

Harang pitched six-plus innings, giving up five runs and 10 hits. Kearns also connected for Cincinnati.

The Reds grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Dunn doubled and scored on Rich Aurilia's single.

Hall's 17th homer in the third tied it at 1-1. It also matched his career high, set last season.

Hall batted .207 (6-for-29) with one home run and three RBI on a recent 10-game road trip. He spent time in the batting cage Monday morning and adjusted his stance.

"I struggled on the road and struck out a lot," Hall said. "But I corrected some things in the cage today, and went out and had fun again."

Cincinnati grabbed the lead again in the third. Brandon Phillips singled with two outs and Kearns followed with his 16th home run -- his third in four games.

Milwaukee tied it at 3-all in the sixth on an RBI single by Prince Fielder and a run-scoring double by Damian Miller.

Notes

  • It was Turnbow's sixth blown save in 29 chances.
  • Hall's third-inning homer snapped a streak of 21 consecutive singles for the Brewers. In fact, the team had no extra-base hits in its previous two games in Minnesota, both losses.
  • Brewers pitchers have just one hit in their last 41 at-bats, a single by Zach Jackson on June 18 against Cleveland.
