Billy Hamilton drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the ninth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds capitalized on four Milwaukee errors for a 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Friday night.
Hamilton lined his single to right off Francisco Rodriguez (2-2), the Brewers' closer pitching in a non-save situation. Reds counterpart Aroldis Chapman had little trouble in the bottom of the ninth with a 1-2-3 inning for his 11th save.
Hamilton's hit spoiled a special night for Milwaukee, which unveiled its Wall of Honor before the game. Hall of Famer Hank Aaron and baseball Commissioner Bud Selig were among dignitaries at Miller Park, where Milwaukee rallied from a four-run deficit in the seventh on Carlos Gomez's RBI double.
Jonathan Broxton (2-0) tossed a scoreless eighth for the win.
