CINCINNATI, OH (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers won their first series at Cincinnati in almost two years, after a 3-1 victory Sunday afternoon. Marco Estrada pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and two walks as he struck out a season-high nine. Estrada retired 15 straight at one point, as he improved his record to 6-4. Jim Henderson pitched the ninth for his 21st save. He gave up Cincinnati’s only run on a homer from Joey Votto. Caleb Gindl gave the Brewers the only offense they needed with a two-run homer in the second inning off Reds’ emergency starter Greg Reynolds. He filled in for Tony Cingrani, who was put on the disabled list Sunday with a strained lower back. Reynolds took the loss, giving up two runs on five hits in six innings. He fell to 0-2. Jean Segura gave the Brewers their final run of the day with a run-scoring single in the seventh. Segura had two singles on the day, as the Brewers out-hit the Reds 7-5. Khris Davis extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a double. Milwaukee has won three-of-its-last-five, and is now two games ahead of the last-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central. The Brewers are off today, will open a series at Pittsburgh tomorrow night.
