MILWAUKEE -- Johnny Cueto showed he could hold his own in a duel with one of baseballs toughest pitchers at home, Zack Greinke. cheap jerseys wholesale . Joey Votto and the Cincinnati Reds then found a way to give Dusty Baker a milestone victory. Vottos RBI double off John Axford broke a scoreless tie in the ninth, and the Reds edged the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Wednesday. "Zack is always a handful," Votto said. "John Axford is a very good pitcher in his own right, and then we stole one from him. I dont want to use the word surprising, but its great whenever you can sneak out a win against those two pitchers." The Reds won two of three against the struggling Brewers, leaving Baker with 1,500 victories as a major league manager. "Every time you win something, it means something," Baker said. "They came and told me that I won my 1,400th here. Now my 1,500th here. Who knows? Maybe Ill win my 2,000th here. If Im around that long." Drew Stubbs singled off Axford with two outs, and Votto lined a ball over the glove of second baseman Rickie Weeks to score Stubbs from first. "Drew always has a chance to score," Votto said. "Hes such a good runner. Hes probably one of the games best runners." Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he didnt have a clear view of the play as it developed, but he wasnt happy with the result. "I dont think a guy should be able to score from first base," Roenicke said. Brandon Phillips then hit a bloop single, driving in Votto for a 2-0 lead. Ryan Braun connected against Sean Marshall in the bottom of the ninth, trimming the Reds lead to one with his 10th homer. Marshall nearly gave up another homer on a long fly ball by Corey Hart that was caught at the wall in centre, then allowed a pair of two-out singles to Jonathan Lucroy and Norichika Aoki. Baker then decided to replace Marshall with Logan Ondrusek. "Aoki blooped one in there and at that point and time, I figured that was enough," Baker said. "You hate to take your closer out, but we needed that ballgame." Ondrusek walked George Kottaras to load the bases but got Travis Ishikawa to pop out, earning his first save. "As a manager, youve got to do what youve got to do," Baker said. "No, I had no reservations about that." Axford (0-2) took the loss. "I made a good pitch to Votto, but he put a better swing on it, got his hands in there and it was literally like an inch away from Rickie catching it," Axford said. "The ball after that, it was just kind of, throw the bat out there and hope you make contact and it dropped in. Its just the way baseball goes sometimes." The ninth-inning offence came after impressive outings from Greinke and Cueto. Greinke pitched eight dominant innings before being lifted for a pinch hitter. He gave up two hits with no walks and had a season-high 11 strikeouts -- his 15th career double-digit strikeout game. Coming into Wednesdays game, Greinke was 13-0 in 18 starts with the Brewers at Miller Park -- making him the sixth player since 1900 to win each of his first 13 home decisions with a team. With Wednesdays loss, the Brewers are now 18-1 in home starts by Greinke. Cueto pitched seven innings before Aroldis Chapman (3-0) came in for the eighth. Cueto gave up five hits, struck out five and walked one. Cueto came into Wednesdays game on an early hot streak, having given up only six earned runs in six outings this year. He was coming off of a complete-game victory at Pittsburgh. "Hes probably the most underappreciated pitcher, since hes been healthy last year," Greinke said of Cueto. "His numbers are pretty insane. I dont think Ive heard anyone talking about him being one of the better pitchers in the league. Maybe its time to start that." Cueto got out of trouble after the Brewers loaded the bases with two out in the third on a single by Nyjer Morgan, a walk to Weeks and an infield hit by Braun. Aramis Ramirez grounded out to end the inning. After retiring the first 10 batters he faced, Greinke allowed a double to Stubbs in the fourth. Stubbs double was the only hit for the Reds in the first six innings. NOTES: Braun was in the lineup despite aggravating a nagging Achilles injury Tuesday night. ... Both teams are off Thursday.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots are stocking up on wide receivers who have experience in their complex offensive system. A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Monday that wide receiver Donte Stallworth has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the Patriots. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the matter. The Patriots also reportedly reached agreement last week with Brandon Lloyd, who played for current Patriots offensive co-ordinator Josh McDaniels when he was head coach of the Denver Broncos in 2009 and the first 12 games in 2010. The Patriots have not officially announced signing Lloyd. Stallworth spent one season with the Patriots in 2007 when they went 18-0 before losing the Super Bowl to the New York Giants. He had 46 catches during the regular season. He had 17 receptions with Cleveland in 2008, two with Baltimore in 2010 and 22 with Washington last year. He was suspended for the 2009 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the leagues personal conduct policy for a DUI vehicular manslaughter charge. New England also has signed wide receiiver Anthony Gonzalez, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts.dddddddddddd All three moves could spell the end of Chad Ochocincos career with the team. He signed a two-year contract before last season but struggled trying to learn the offence and finished with 15 catches in 15 regular-season games. The Patriots also have Deion Branch and Wes Welker, but neither is the deep threat they lacked last season. Welker is a free agent, but was given the franchise tag and would bring compensation to the Patriots if another team signs him. The Patriots announced Monday the signing of two free agents: defensive end Trevor Scott from the Oakland Raiders and cornerback Marquice Cole from the New York Jets. Scott, Oaklands sixth-round draft choice out of Buffalo in 2008, had 13 1-2 sacks in 58 games, including 16 starts, in four seasons with the Raiders. Cole, who spent the last three seasons with the Jets, was undrafted coming out of Northwestern in 2007. He signed as a rookie free agent with Oakland, then moved on to Tennessee and New Orleans. In 37 games, including one start, he has two interceptions, including a 35-yard touchdown return. ' ' '
