MILWAUKEE (AP) - Mark Reynolds had a game-ending RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame Francisco Rodriguez's first blown save of the season for a 6-5 win Sunday over the New York Yankees.

Rickie Weeks doubled just inside the first base line with one out before going to third on a wild pitch by reliever Adam Warren (1-2).

Reynolds, who briefly played for New York last year, held his right index finger in the air after his hard chopper bounced past diving third baseman Yangervis Solarte at third to drive in Weeks two batters later. Reynolds then was mobbed by his teammates near first base.

The Yankees were one strike away from defeat when Mark Teixeira reached out for a low and away, full-count pitch from Rodriguez for a homer to right. It was the first run allowed all season by the veteran closer.
