Brewers Use The Long Ball To Snap Three Game Skid

Last updated on Tuesday, August 7, 2012

(Milwaukee, WI) - The Milwaukee Brewers snapped a three-game skid with a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo put Milwaukee on the board with an RBI single in the fifth.

The Brewers drove Bronson Arroyo from the game in the sixth as they hit three home runs off the Reds starter in the inning.

Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart hit back-to-back solo home runs with Martin Maldonado adding a two-run shot later in the inning.

Maldonado would add an RBI double in the eighth to finish with three runs batted in.

Zack Cozart hit a solo homer off Gallardo in the seventh.

Gallardo went seven innings, allowing a run on six hits to improve to 10-8 while Arroyo falls to 7-7.

Cincinnati's loss combined with Pittsburgh's win at home over Arizona cuts the Reds' lead in the NL Central to three and-a-half games over the Pirates.
