PHOENIX (AP) -- Kyle Lohse threw three scoreless innings, Martin Maldonado homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 Tuesday for their first win this spring.
The Brewers had been outscored 27-14 in losing their first five exhibition games.
Lohse, projected as the opening day starter, allowed two hits and struck out four.
Reds starter Johnny Cueto gave up a run and three hits in three innings.
Maldonado, getting plenty of playing time with catcher Jonathan Lucroy still out with a hamstring problem, is hitting .556 for the spring (5 for 9) with a double, a triple and a homer.
Shane Peterson had a two-run homer and Jason Rogers got three hits for Milwaukee.
