Brewers win 9-5 to hand Reds their 11th straight loss

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Aaron Hill hit two solo homers, Jonathan Lucroy added a solo shot and drove in three runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers outslugged Cincinnati for a 9-5 victory Friday night, handing the Reds their 11th straight loss.
   

The Brewers chipped away at an early three-run deficit before surging ahead with a four-run fourth. Hill homered to left off John Lamb (0-3) to lead off the inning, and Lucroy capped the scoring with an RBI ground-rule double.
   

Hill's second homer came in the fifth off reliever Dayan Diaz for a three-run lead. Five of Hill's six homers this season have come against the Reds, including a three-homer game on May 7 in Cincinnati.
   

After sweeping last-place Atlanta, the Brewers won their fourth straight game by beating the NL Central's worst team.
