MILWAUKEE -- Lyle Overbay hit a game-ending RBI single off Jumbo Diaz with one out in the ninth, lifting Milwaukee to a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds that helped the Brewers keep pace in the National League playoff race.
Overbay sent the first pitch from Diaz (0-1) into the gap in left-center. The veteran was mobbed by teammates after lifting the Brewers to their third straight win.
Milwaukee stayed 1 1/2 games back of Pittsburgh for the second NL wild card.
Jonathan Lucroy led off the bottom of the ninth with a double and moved to third on a groundout. Diaz elected to load the bases on two intentional walks to bring up Overbay.
Cincinnati had a chance to go in front in the ninth againstFrancisco Rodriguez (5-5).
Hannahan was so unhappy with the call that he had to be restrained by manager Bryan Price. Hannahan ended up getting ejected by home plate umpire Dan Iassogna.
It only got worse for Cincinnati, which had won three in a row.
The Reds tied it at 2 in the seventh on Brayan Pena's sacrifice fly, leading starter Kyle Lohse to stomp around the mound and yell at himself in frustration. Brandon Kintzler later got out of a first-and-third jam by striking out pinch-hitter Devin Mesoraco to end the inning.
Cincinnati wasted a surprising outing by spot starter Daniel Corcino, who allowed just two hits and two runs in six innings.
Reds: Corcino started because Mat Latos was a late scratch with a bone bruise in his right elbow. The right-hander missed the first 2 1/2 months of the season with right elbow and left knee injuries.
Brewers: LF Khris Davis was out of the starting lineup for a second straight day with right forearm tightness. Davis, who has a team-high 22 homers, will likely start on Saturday, manager Ron Roenicke said.
Reds: LH David Holmberg (0-1) threw 5 2-3 scoreless innings on Monday after replacing injured starter Dylan Axelrod. Now, Holmberg gets the start Saturday for his first career appearance against Milwaukee.
Brewers: RH Yovani Gallardo (8-9) will try to snap out of a tough stretch after going 0-3 with a 5.95 ERA in his last four starts.
