Reds' 4-2 win hurts Brewers' playoff chances

Posted:
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL's top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they'll be without their manager for the rest of the week. 
   The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 31/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot. 
   They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the NL Central title on Saturday night. 
   Manager Dusty Baker met players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat last week. The 63-year-old manager hopes to return to the dugout next week.
