This Weekend's Results

Brewers 5, Reds 0

Taylor Jungmann followed up a bad start with a good one. He pitched six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits and three runs. It backed up a good offensive performance from the Brewers, who took an early 2-0 lead on RBI hits from Jonathan Lucroy and Khris Davis. Domingo Santana added his third home run as a Brewer, and Adam Lind also drove in a pair of runs.

Reds 12, Brewers 9

Matt Garza had another rough start, putting the Brewers in a 7-3 hole with seven runs allowed in 3.2 innings pitched. However, the Brewers offense responded and picked him up, taking a 9-8 lead after five innings. Scooter Gennett had a four hit day, while Jean Segura had three hits. Francisco Rodriguez came in for the ninth, but blew his first save of the year, allowing four runs.

Brewers 4, Reds 1

Wily Peralta has had a few rough starts lately, but he finally got things back together on Sunday. In seven innings, he allowed just a single run without a walk and with six strikeouts. Ryan Braun got the scoring started early with a solo home run, then added on with a Jonathan Lucroy RBI and two more runs in the eighth.
