Jay Bruce homered off Burke Badenhop with one out in the 10th inning on Friday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in a game full of errors and wasted chances.
It was Cincinnati's second straight extra-inning game. The Reds fell 6-5 in 14 innings at Wrigley Field on Thursday, leaving their bullpen depleted.
Bruce connected on a 1-2 pitch from Badenhop (0-3) for his fifth game-ending homer, leaving the Reds 4-7 in extra innings this season.
Alfredo Simon (5-2) retired the side in the 10th.
The teams combined for five errors - including a season-high three by Cincinnati. Bronson Arroyo hit Martin Maldonado with the bases loaded to force in a run, and Maldonado homered off him to tie it 3-all in the eighth.
The Reds have won 11 of their last 13 against the Brewers at Great American Ball Park, a hitters' haven that hasn't suited Milwaukee. The Brewers stranded eight runners in scoring position on Friday, leaving the bases loaded twice.
