Reds’ Bailey, bullpen shut out Brewers

Sep 28, 2017

MILWAUKEE – If the Milwaukee Brewers finish on the outside looking in at the 2017 postseason, there’s a good chance they’ll have a picture of Homer Bailey on their dartboards over the winter.

Twice over the final month of the season Bailey held the Brewers in check but Wednesday night may have been the most painful as he held Milwaukee scoreless over seven innings as the Reds snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 6-0 victory at Miller Park.

“He’s pitched a couple of good ones against us,” said Brewers manager Craig Counsell, whose team was eliminated from National League Central contention earlier in the day and fell 2 1/2 games behind the Rockies for the final NL wild-card spot with four games to play. “You have to earn these wins. Tonight we didn’t do much on both sides with starting pitching and then offensively we didn’t do well enough to give ourselves a chance.”

Bailey didn’t give the Brewers much to work with, moving his fastball around the zone with a biting slider mixed in for good measure.

He scattered four hits and three walks while striking out five and worked seven full innings for the first time since Aug. 7, 2014.
