Chris Capuano turned in an excellent start for the Brewers, nearly matching Aaron Harang's dominance. Rookie third baseman Ryan Braun was the bright spot of the Brewers' offense, going 3-for-5 with a homer. Prince Fielder also tallied two hits.
Locked in a pitchers' duel, Aaron Harang's brilliant 10-inning performance yielded only a no-decision. The Reds later won in 12 innings on a pinch-hit single by Javier Valentin. David Ross homered in the third inning for the Reds.
a-Popped out for Harang in the 10th. b-Singled for Burton in the 12th. 1-Ran for Conine in the 12th.
