Sabathia falls
Photos
Reds 4, Brewers 3
CC Sabathia allowed one free pass and struck out three Saturday. (Tom Uhlman/AP)
CC Sabathia gave the Brewers everything he had, but he was tagged for a three-run sixth that became too much to overcome as Milwaukee dropped the series to Cincinnati. Rickie Weeks made the most of his start with a homer and two RBIs, as the Brew Crew faces a 2 1/2-game deficit in the NL Wild Card race.
