Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, Ohio
• Summary: Bill Hall ended a 1-for-22 drought with a seventh-inning grand slam off Reds reliever Todd Coffey. The shot secured a 10-6 Brewers win.
• Cashing in: Hall's first career grand slam came in his 43rd at-bat with the bases juiced.
• Figure this: Coffey needed just eight pitches to load the bases before giving up the homer to Hall.
• Fantasy stat: Rickie Weeks led off the third with a solo shot to left center. The bomb was Weeks' third home run in the last four games.
• Did you see that?: Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder was beaned in back-to-back at-bats. Coffey hit Fielder in the seventh followed by Jon Coutlangus in the eighth.
