Hairston's homer powers hot Reds

Quote:
MILWAUKEE -- Jerry Hairston Jr.'s two-run home run in the third inning was the difference maker for the Reds in their 6-1 win over the Brewers Tuesday at Miller Park.

The Reds, who have won three in a row and four of their past five games, have won the first two games of the three-game series with Milwaukee and can leave with a sweep with another win on Wednesday.

The game was tied at 1 in the Cincinnati third inning when Hairston sent a 2-2 pitch from Brewers starter Manny Parra over the left-field wall for a two-run homer. It was Hairston's first homer of the season and snapped a 1-for-11 skid to start the season.

That proved to be enough run support for Reds starter Bronson Arroyo (2-0), who worked 6 1/3 innings and allowed one earned run and four hits with four walks and three strikeouts for his second win in two starts.

The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. After Hairston drew a four-pitch walk, Joey Votto hit a RBI double to right field off of Parra (0-2), who finished with three earned runs on just three hits over his six innings but gave up four walks while striking out four.

With one out in the Milwaukee second inning, J.J. Hardy tied the game with a solo homer to left field off Arroyo.

After Arroyo was lifted with one out in the seventh and runners on first and second, Daniel Herrera induced Rickie Weeks' inning-ending double play and retired the first batter in the bottom of the eighth. David Weathers made his 900th career appearance and retired the final two batters in the eighth before Francisco Cordero handled the ninth for his third save.
