Brewers slug past Reds

A five-run third inning gave the Milwaukee Brewers the support it needed to take the series from the Cincinnati Reds with a 7-5 win Sunday afternoon.


Travis Shaw kicked off the Brewers rally with his sixth home run of the season and was followed by a Christian Yelich' RBI double. Mike Moustakas and Orlando Arcia each cracked RBI singles to help the Brewers put up the five spot. Eric Thames extended the lead with a RBI sacrifice fly two innings later only to be outdone by Orlando Arcia's 10th homer of the year a few batters later.


The Reds would begin chipping away at the lead in the top half of the sixth with a three-run homer by Joey Votto. RBI hits by Yasiel Puig and Curt Casali would get the Reds to within two, but Jeremy Jeffress was able to secure the final outs to help the Brewers get their second straight win.


The Brewers will have Monday off before welcoming the Seattle Mariners to Miller Park on Tuesday.
