Overbay delivers, Brewers beat Reds 3-2

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

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.

Francisco Rodriguez (5-5) picked up the win.
