INSIDE PITCH

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Cincinnati leftfielder Jerry Hairston Jr. cranked a two-run homer to left off lefty Manny Parra in the third inning to snap a 1-1 tie.

TURNING POINT

Down, 3-1, in the third, the Brewers had their best shot to do some damage against Reds starter Bronson Arroyo when they loaded the bases with two outs in the third. But after falling behind in the count, 2-0, Prince Fielder popped up to shallow left.

BEHIND THE BOX SCORE

* Reds leadoff hitter Willy Taveras stole second base in the fifth and eighth innings. Brewers catcher Jason Kendall has nabbed one of eight (12.5%) in his seven starts.

* Reliever Mark DiFelice pitched a 1-2-3 seventh inning. In four appearances this season, DiFelice has pitched six innings and allowed four hits and one run (1.50 ERA).

CLUBHOUSE CONFIDENTIAL

The TV sets in the clubhouse were tuned Tuesday afternoon to ESPN Classic, which was replaying a game pitched by Mark "The Bird" Fidrych in memory of the pitcher who was killed in an accident Monday on his farm. Former Brewers second baseman Jim Gantner recalled collecting his first big-league hit off Fidrych on Sept. 3, 1976. "That was the night Mike Hegan also hit for the cycle," Gantner said.

STATITUDE

* The Brewers' Ryan Braun has two hits in 18 at-bats on the home stand.
