Last call

• While plenty is being written about Francisco Rodriguez and his resurgence as the Brewers' closer, none of this is news to Roenicke, who credits the right-hander's success to one simple element: K-Rod is just a really, really good pitcher.

"He's got everything working now," Roenicke said. "When he does, this is how he pitches. He has a very durable arm. His mind is where he wants to pitch every day. His mind isn't, 'I've pitched three games in a row and I'm tired.' The mental part of it is good. He turns the page really well. He has a bad one, and the next day, he comes out and you wouldn't know it."

Mark Reynolds hit his seventh homer of the season on Saturday in Cincinnati. His 192 homers since 2008 ranks fifth in the Majors.

• The Brewers are heading home to Miller Park, where they are 9-6 and 3-2 in series play.
