MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun hit two homers, doubled and drove in six runs Sunday as the Milwaukee Brewers avoided a sweep with a 7-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
Braun hit a two-run double in the first inning, a three-run homer in the second and his 22nd home run in the fourth.
Joey Votto homered, doubled and drove in all three Reds runs.
Wily Peralta (5-8) allowed one run on four hits over six innings to earn his first win since June 11.
Rookie Cody Reed (0-7) was tagged for six runs on five hits and three walks before being pulled after Braun's home run in the second. Braun homered later off reliever Keyvius Sampson.
