MILWAUKEE, July 3 (UPI) -- Carlos Lee singled in the game-winning run during a two-run ninth inning Monday as the Milwaukee Brewers posted an 8-7 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

The Reds scored three runs in the top of the ninth to take a 7-6 lead. Bill Hall went 4-for-5 with a homer and three runs scored for the Brewers.

Matt Wise (5-4) earned the win in one-third of an inning. All-Star pitcher Derrick Turnbow, who has blown two straight saves, surrendered three runs on two hits and three walks in two-thirds of an inning.

Ken Griffey Jr. homered and drove in three runs for the Reds. It was the 554th home run of his career and he trails Reggie Jackson by nine homers for 10th place all-time. Griffey (1,586) also passed Harmon Killebrew (1,584) for 25th on the all-time RBI list.
