CINCINNATI, OH (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers have lost back-to-back games for the first time since April 15th, after falling at Cincinnati Thursday night, 8-3. The Reds broke a 3-3 tie by scoring five runs in the eighth inning to pull away. Pinch-hitter Brayan Pena had the game-winning hit - a two-run homer off Jim Henderson, who took the loss and dropped to 2-1. Todd Frazier and Tucker Barnhart also homered for Cincinnati, which won for only the second time in its last six games. Reds' starter Homer Bailey got the win, giving up three runs on eight hits and a walk in eight solid innings. Bailey struck out four, and he's now 2-2. Milwaukee pitchers gave up a season-high eight walks -four from starter Marco Estrada, who escaped with a no-decision after giving up two homers in six innings. He struck out six. Carlos Gomez hit a two-run double, which tied the game in the seventh. Jean Segura was the only Brewer with more than one hit. He went 2 for 4 with an R-B-I single, as he and Aramis Ramirez returned to the starting line-up after their injuries over the past week. Milwaukee has now lost 14 of its last 19 games at Cincinnati, where they'll play the Reds again tonight. Brewers' right-hander Wily Peralta faces right-hander Mike Leake.
