Reds Keep Pace With Win in Milwaukee

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Joey Votto and Shin-Soo Choo each hit two-run homers, and the Cincinnati Reds kept pace in the NL Central race with a 7-3 win Saturday over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds entered Saturday trailing the division-leading Cardinals by 3½ games and the second-place Pirates by a game.  Both teams play later Saturday.

Homer Bailey (11-10) allowed three runs over seven innings in winning his career-best sixth straight decision. Votto had three RBIs, including the towering drive off the right field foul pole in the sixth.

The Brewers loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth trailing by four, but All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman struck out pinch-hitter Jonathan Lucroy.

Chapman tossed a scoreless ninth to finish off his 36th save.

The Reds jumped on starter Johnny Hellweg (1-4) with four runs over the first two innings.

Previous to 2017, the Red Raiders hadn't experienced a perfect start in 14 years.  "We're definitely not finished, but it was relieving just to get through the preseason. It's obviously a big deal, but it's not district. We still have work to accomplish," said Chance Amie, Tyler Lee quarterback. The Red Raiders will open up district play this Friday again...More >>
