The Cincinnati Reds jumped out to a quick 3-0 first inning lead, but the Milwaukee Brewers kicked things in gear and rolled to a 9-5 win at Miller Park on Friday night.
The Brewers extended their winning streak to four games, while the Reds dropped their 11th in a row.
Aaron Hill homered twice, giving him five in two games against the Reds this season. Jonathan Lucroy had a home run and double while driving in three. Jonathan Villar had three hits and a walk, raising his average to .306. Villar also scored twice and stole two bases.
Zach Davies was the beneficiary of the Brewers 14-hit attack. He pitched 5 2/3 innings to improve to 2-3 on the season.
Adam Duvall clubbed a three-run homer in the first off of Davies, but the Brewers right hander settled down and retired the next 10 batters in order.
The Brewers bullpen took over and Blaine Boyer, Tyler Thornburg and Jeremy Jeffress mopped up to complete the win.
The two teams play game two of the series this afternoon.
