Reds blast Brewers

MILWAUKEE – Billy Hamilton led off the game with a home run, Brandon Phillips added a two-run shot in the first inning and Todd Frazier later hit his team-high 15th homer as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 13-4 Sunday.

Hamilton homered for the second straight day, connecting off Marco Estrada (5-4).

Ryan Ludwick hit three doubles and had four of the Reds’ season-high 19 hits. Frazier also doubled and drove in four runs.

Estrada’s infield single with the bases loaded in the fourth helped tie the game at 3.

Frazier’s two-run shot the next inning put Cincinnati up for good. Mike Leake (4-6) struggled through five innings but still hung on for the win.
