Frazier, Navaro clutch as Reds nip Brewers
Cincinnati, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Todd Frazier and Dioner Navaro delivered two clutch hits in the ninth inning as the Cincinnati Reds put a huge dent in the Milwaukee Brewers’ playoff hope with a 2-1 victory Thursday at Great American Ball Park.
The Reds, the National League Central division champions, captured their 94th win of the season.
Trailing by 1-0 in the ninth, Frazier blasted a game-tying solo homer and Navaro followed it up with a walkoff RBI triple to snatch the victory from behind.
Reds starter Mat Latos allowed a run over seven innings while Brewers hurler Willy Peralta allowed two hits over 5 1/3 innings.
With the loss, the Brewers (80-76) found themselves a half game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers (80-75) and 4 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the final wildcard spot in the National League with just six games left.
