Leake leads Reds to 6-2 win over Brewers

Posted:

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mike Leake scattered four hits over 8 1-3 innings and Brandon Phillips had three RBI, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 6-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.
   The Reds put the leadoff runner on base in each of the first seven innings and snapped a three-game losing streak.
   Leake (8-4) bounced back from a rare rough start in his last outing and seemed to get stronger as the game progressed. He allowed four walks while striking out two, retiring 13 consecutive batters from the fifth to ninth innings.
   Milwaukee starter Johnny Hellweg (0-3) had trouble throwing strikes and was battered for his fourth consecutive appearance. The right-hander, who made his major-league debut on June 28, allowed four runs on four hits and five walks in 4 1-3 innings.
