Brewers Blasted By Reds For 2nd Straight Day

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brandon Phillips hit a 450-foot grand slam that landed in Bernie Brewer's slide in deep left field and Travis Wood earned his first win in the majors for the Cincinnati Reds, 10-2 over Milwaukee on Wednesday.

The Reds scored 10 unanswered runs, capped by Phillips' shot and Joey Votto's solo homer in the eighth.

With the win, Cincinnati kept the pressure on St. Louis for first in the NL Central after the teams entered play Wednesday in a virtual tie at the top.

Wood (1-1) won in his sixth career start and the Reds piled on the runs, scoring five in the sixth off starter Chris Narveson and reliever Kameron Loe and five more off Carlos Villanueva in the eighth.

Cincinnati finishes this trip 4-2 and is 26-24 away from Great American Ball Park.
