MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rowdy Tellez homered twice, doubled and drove in four runs as the Milwaukee Brewers withstood a ninth-inning comeback attempt to edge the Cincinnati Reds 7-6 on Sunday.
Willy Adames and Tellez hit back-to-back homers off Reds starter Justin Dunn in the Brewers' four-run second inning.
Tellez added a solo shot off Luke Farrell in the fourth inning for his 30th homer.
Brewers center fielder Garrett Mitchell made a diving catch of a TJ Friedl fly ball in the ninth inning that prevented the Reds from tying the game.
Cincinnati's Alejo López went 3 for 3 with his first career homer.
