The Cincinnati Reds broke a scoreless tie in the 9th with a pair of runs, on the way to a 2-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.

Joey Votto doubled home the first run and Brandon Phillips added an RBI single to put the Reds up 2-0.  Ryan Braun homered in the bottom half of the 9th to close the gap, but the Brewers threat ended there. 

Zach Greinke was dominating for the Brewers, surrendering just 2-hits in 8 innings, with 11 strikeouts and no walks.
