Reds hit 3 HRs, beat Brewers 3-1 behind Bailey
by WDJT Editor


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Homer Bailey pitched eight innings for his first career win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night, and Zack Cozart hit the first of Cincinnati's three solo homers for a 3-1 victory that kept the Reds in first place in the NL Central.
The Reds have won nine of their last 11 games, moving 13 games over .500 for the first time this season.
Bailey (9-6) has beaten the defending World Series champion Cardinals and the defending division champion Brewers in his last two starts. He's won four straight starts for the first time in his career.
The right-hander had been 0-5 in 10 career games against Milwaukee.
Cozart, Jay Bruce and Scott Rolen homered off Marco Estrada (0-4), who gave up seven hits overall in seven innings.
