Bruce homers, doubles twice as Reds batter Brewers

 

CINCINNATI (AP) - Jay Bruce homered and doubled twice as the Cincinnati Reds delighted a sellout crowd by moving five games over .500 for the first time this season, battering the Milwaukee Brewers 13-7 on Saturday.

Six different Reds players drove in two runs each, including starting pitcher Mat Latos (4-0).

The bottom five hitters in Cincinnati's lineup were a combined 8 for 9 in the first three innings alone, scoring 10 runs and driving in six against Hiram Burgos (1-1). The rookie allowed 12 runs on 11 hits and three walks in those three innings.

A promotion featuring Aroldis Chapman bobbleheads drew a crowd of 41,678. The Reds never needed their closer after romping early.
