All Star catcher Johnathan Lucroy walloped a lead off, walk off home in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 at Miller Park Tuesday night. Lucroy hit the third pitch he saw from Sam LeCure over the left field wall for the win. It was his second solo home run of the night. Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez went back to back with home runs in the first off Homer Bailey to stake Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers to a 2-0 lead. Cincinnati tallied in the third on a Jay Bruce double. Lucroy made it 3-1 with his first homer in the sixth. Nelson had allowed just two hits through six innings but gave up two straight singles to start the 7th. He then hit Zack Cozart in the hand but replays showed the ball struck the bat first. Manager Ron Roenicke asked for a replay but the call was not reversed. Nelson hit the next batter to bring in a run and a sacrifice fly given up by Brandon Kintzler tied the game. Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth to pick up his fourth win when Lucroy delivered the dagger. The Brewers moved to 56-45 and gained a game on St. Louis which lost to Tampa Bay 7-2. Milwaukee leads the division by a game and a half and they'll send Kyle Lohse to the mound to go for a sweep Wednesday afternoon. Pre-Game coverage begins at 12:35 PM on WTAQ.
