Rough Night for Narveson as Brewers Lose to Reds

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer, Bronson Arroyo pitched effectively into the seventh and the Cincinnati Reds used a six-run third inning to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-5 on Monday night.

Already ahead 1-0, the Reds sent 11 batters to the plate in the third, holding Chris Narveson (1-1) to his shortest outing in 38 career starts.

Cincinnati had eight hits in the inning one night after managing just four in a shutout loss to St. Louis.

Bruce homered and Brandon Phillips, Jonny Gomes, Ryan Hanigan and even Arroyo (3-2) drove in a run each to give Cincinnati a 7-0 lead.

Phillips added a two-run single in the ninth.

Milwaukee's Ryan Braun continued his torrid stretch with a two-run homer in the ninth.
