MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mike Cameron homered and Yovani Gallardo won his fifth game as the Milwaukee Brewers swept the three-game series from the Cincinnati Reds with a 5-2 win on Sunday.

It wasn't quite the gem Gallardo (5-2) threw on Monday against St. Louis when the right-hander had a no-hitter going into the sixth and finished allowing two hits in eight shutout innings, but he was good enough against Cincinnati.

He lasted 5 1-3 innings, hit a batter, threw a wild pitch and, except for Brandon Phillips' solo homer, allowed seven harmless hits. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the second and struck out nine.

The Brewers swept a three-game series from the Reds at Miller Park for the first time since July 3-5, 2006.
