MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Homer Bailey allowed one run and three hits in eight innings, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-1 on Sunday.
Bailey (8-10) won his third straight decision by beating a team that has given him trouble. He improved his career mark against Milwaukee to 2-7 with his first win in three starts against the Brewers this season.
Scooter Gennett's double in the second, and Khris Davis' solo shot in the fifth and infield single in the seventh were the only hits for the Brewers. Bailey walked one and struck out eight, including Juan Francisco three times.
The Reds, who lost 2-0 on Saturday night, batted around in the second inning as an erratic Wily Peralta (8-13) allowed five runs. Cincinnati sent 10 men to the plate in the fifth and tacked on four more runs.
