National League Game Summary - Cincinnati at Milwaukee



(Wednesday, July 23)

Final Score: Milwaukee 5, Cincinnati 1

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Mark Reynolds homered twice and the Milwaukee Brewers finished a three-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds with a 5-1 win on Wednesday.

The Reds had just four hits off Brewers starter Kyle Lohse, and five overall, and fell to 0-6 since the All-Star break -- their first six-game losing streak in more than three years.

Lohse (11-4) allowed one run, two walks and struck out three for NL Central- leading Milwaukee and Reynolds had three hits and three RBI.

The Brewers have won four of their last six games after entering the break in a 2-11 funk.

"We went through a tough period but we were still in first and we knew there was a lot of season left," said Lohse. "We still have a long way to go, so we have to keep playing the way we have been and hopefully things work out."

Mike Leake (7-9) gave up four runs on 11 hits in six innings for the Reds to lose his third straight start.

Cincinnati has scored 12 runs in its first six-game slide since May 18-23, 2011.

"Believe it or not, I've been part of worse. I've been doing this a long time," said Reds manager Bryan Price. "I think anyone who watched the six games on this road trip knows we just weren't playing the way we were leading into the break."

The Reds scored first on Billy Hamilton's sacrifice fly in the top of the fifth but the Brewers took the lead with two runs in the bottom of the inning.

Lohse sparked the rally with a one-out single and scored when Carlos Gomez tripled the other way past a diving Jay Bruce in right field. Ryan Braun beat out an infield single to second base to drive in the second run.

The Brewers pushed their lead to 4-1 on Reynolds' first homer of the game, a two-run blast to left in the sixth inning. Reynolds hit his 16th homer of the season with two outs in the eighth off Jumbo Diaz.

Game Notes

Hamilton got his 40th stolen base of the season in the third inning, swiping second ... The Reds win seven of their last nine games before the All-Star break ... The Brewers remain at home for a four-game series against the Mets beginning Thursday ... After starting the second half on a six-game road trip the Reds will return to Cincinnati for six in a row starting Friday against Washington.
