Reds Lose Second Straight

Posted: Updated:

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Yovani Gallardo gave up three hits in 6 1/3 innings and Logan Schafer had a two-run double to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.

Gallardo (9-9), who came off the disabled list Friday, struck out three to lead Milwaukee to its second straight win over the Reds.

Gallardo did not give up a hit until the fourth inning when Brandon Phillips singled after Joey Votto walked. But Phillips was caught in a rundown after the ball got away from Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

The Reds threatened to score in the seventh inning as Gallardo gave up a one-out single to Phillips. Gallardo was replaced by Brandon Kintzler, who gave up consecutive singles to Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick. But Kintzler got pinch hitter Xavier Paul to ground into a double play to end the inning.

Kintzler pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Jim Henderson struck out the side in the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.
