The Milwaukee Brewers continued their torrid hitting pace in Saturday’s 7-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ballpark.
The win extended the Brewers win streak to seven straight games, the last six coming on the road. The 7-game streak is the longest for the Brewers since they won nine straight in April of last season.
The Brewers broke open a 1-1 tie in the fifth when they scored six times, sending 12 hitters to the plate.
Cincinnati pitchers hit four Brewer hitters with pitches, including Carlos Gomez, who had to leave the game. X-rays were negative on his left wrist.
Jimmy Nelson (6-8, 4.50) was pulled in the sixth inning but still earned the victory. His final numbers: 5 2/3 IP, 3 runs, 8 hits, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts.
Offensively, Jean Segura led the charge with three hits and a run batted in. Gerardo Parra, Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez chipped in with two hits each.
Taylor Jungmann gets the start for the Brewers today as they shoot for their 8th straight win.
