The Milwaukee hitters who couldn’t buy a base hit against Chicago have found the touch again in Cincinnati, pounding three home runs in a 7-6 win over the Reds. Ryan Braun knocked in the game-winner with a seventh-inning double Tuesday night and Jeremy Jeffress slammed the door for his first save. Jeffress struck out Joey Votto and got Scott Schebler on a grounder with the tying run on third in the bottom of the eighth.
Travis Shaw had a two-run homer, then Jesus Aguilar and Hernan Perez knocked the ball out of the park, too. At seven-and-23, the Reds are off to the worst 30-game start in franchise history. Left-hander Wade Miley starts tonight’s game at Great American Ballpark for the Brewers with first pitch at 6:10 P-M.
