Davis homers twice in Brewers victory

Khris Davis clubbed a pair of two-run homers in consecutive at-bats for the first multi-homer game of his career, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the series opener on Friday night.

Davis has 8 home runs this season with all 8 coming in the 23 games since he returned to Milwaukee from the minors, his third stint with the team.

Scooter Gennett also homered for the Brewers, who won at Great American Ballpark for just the second time in seven games this season.

Rob Wooten earned the win in relief and Jim Henderson notched his 23rd save.

Wily Peralta pitches game 2 of the series for the Brewers tonight.
