Braun homers, Brewers beat Reds 8-1

Posted:

 

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Ryan Braun hit his NL-leading 41st home run on Wednesday night, and the Milwaukee Brewers kept their wild-card chances flickering with an 8-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. 
   Milwaukee entered the day trailing St. Louis by 41/2 games for the final NL wild-card spot, a long shot that left no margin for error. 
   Shaun Marcum (6-4) went six innings for his first victory since returning from an elbow problem, allowing only four hits, including Joey Votto's RBI double. 
   Norichika Aoki homered to start a three-run third inning off Bronson Arroyo (12-9) and added an RBI double. Braun, the NL's Most Valuable Player last season as the Brewers won the NL Central, hit a two-run shot in the seventh off Logan Ondrusek. 
   The Reds have clinched the Central title.
