Brewers rally for 4-3 win over Reds

The Milwaukee Brewers pounced on Cincinnati Reds closer Francisco Cordero, rallying from a run down in the ninth for a 4-3 victory Sunday.

Pinch hitter Mark Kotsay tied the game with an RBI single, scoring Nyjer Morgan. With the bases loaded and one out, pinch hitter Craig Counsell delivered a sacrifice fly to win the game.

The rally ruined a return to the big leagues by Reds starter Dontrelle Willis, who gave up a pair of runs over six innings.

Milwaukee again was without Ryan Braun, who has missed the team's last eight games with a lingering calf strain. Braun will not play in Tuesday's All-Star game but said he expects to be ready to return when the Brewers resume play in Colorado on Thursday.
