The Milwaukee Brewers won their fourth straight game this time at Miller Park  tonight, and handed the plummeting Cincinnati Reds their eleventh straight loss.

The Reds pitching is not good. The Brewers had 14 hits in 8 innings, and added 5 walks. Zach Davies wasn't much better, but 5 earned in 5.2 innings was good enough to gather up his second win of the season.

Aaron Hill keyed the Brewers' offense with two more homers against the Reds, to compliment his earlier three homer game in Cincinnati. Hill also singled and drove in two. Jonathon Lucroy homered and doubled and drove in three. Jonathon Villar contributed a double and two singles, scoring twice and driving in two. Hernan Perez, Ramon Flores, and Keon Broxton (!) contributed two hits apiece.

Ryan Braun walked twice but was held without a hit, and Chris Carter totally missed out on the offensive fireworks, going 0-5. Sleepy ended innings his first four at bats. The Brewers knocked out 14 hits.

After Davies, the Brewers used Blaine Boyer, Tyler Thornburg, and Jeremy Jeffress to work the last 3.1 innings, allowing zilch, nada, nuttin. They fanned 4 Reds.

The Reds opened the scoring in the top of the first. After two were out, Brandon Phillips hit a grounder in the hole between third and short for an infield single. Jay Bruce hit a deep fly to right that clanged off of the glove of Ramon Flores for a double. Adam Duvall followed with a homer. The 3-0 lead was cut by one in the bottom of the first as the Brewers scored once on two walks, tour stolen bases, and a sac fly.,

Lucroy hit a solo homer in the third, and the Crew took the lead for good with four in the fourth. Hill homered, and Broxton, Villar, and Luc hit doubles. Hill's second homer, in the fifth, and two more in the seventh on RBI hits from Villar and Perez capped the scoring. The Reds scored on a sac fly in the fifth and their final run came on an opposite field homer by Joey Votto.

Ther Brewers (22-26) send Chase Anderson (2-5) to face the Reds (15-33) Alfredo Simon (1-5).
