Cincinnati’s Alejo Lopez went 3 for 3 with his first career Homer and double.
The Reds trailed 7-2 in six games but came back almost.
Cincinnati was trailing 7-4 when Spencer Steer doubled and Lopez scored a single to start ninth. The Reds made a series tie for second with no one out after Matt Reynolds bumped into a coach on the left side and reached for second on third baseman Jes Peterson’s throw.
After Williams hit Kyle Farmer, Mitchell’s catch turned a potential solo dive for Friedel into just a fly-by.
“I kind of let instincts take over in this situation,” Mitchell said. “I just read on the ball, and as soon as I felt like I got to a point I was close to, I asked for it and then I went for it.”
Williams then shook Jonathan India in his 12th blocker on 13 chances. India starred in each of his five appearances in paintings.
“To get the same distance, especially in terms of how to start the game, we can implement that tomorrow,” said Reds manager David Bale. “We failed. That’s the bottom line. But we still gave everything we had to try and win it.”
This was Tellez’s fifth multiplayer game this season. His massive performance delighted 42,482 spectators who gave Milwaukee its third sale of the season, capitalizing on a freebie from bobbleheads featuring Milwaukee Bucks star and Brewers minority owner Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Tellez and Adames were vying to lead the team in the homers.
“It’s always fun to have that kind of rotation,” Telles said. “He’s been having a great year too. I wouldn’t be where I am if he hadn’t hit in front of me most of the year, settled on base and made me tackle the courts.”
Tellez also had two doubles in the first half.
Adames needs only one Homer to match the Brewers Palace’s one-season record. Hall of Fame Robin Yount reached 29 homers in 1982 while earning the honors MVP and lead the Brewers to their only appearance in the World Series.
