Brewers' offense breaks out in 8-3 win over Reds

Posted:

 

Aramis Ramirez hit a three-run triple, helping the Milwaukee Brewers shake off their recent offensive struggles in an 8-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

   Yovani Gallardo (2-3) gave up two runs in six innings and tied a season high with eight strikeouts for the Brewers, who had lost eight of their previous 11 games.

   Gallardo had an RBI single in the fifth, snapping an eight-game scoreless streak by the Reds' bullpen.

   Scott Rolen's double in the eighth was the 506th of his career, tying Babe Ruth for 48th on the all-time list. Cincinnati's Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer off Gallardo in the sixth, his 10th this season.

   Reds starter Homer Bailey (1-3) gave up six runs and six hits in 3 2-3 innings. He walked three, struck out four and hit a batter.
