Lohse retires 23 straight in Brewers win

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Gomez went 3 for 4 with 5 RBIs while Kyle Lohse retired 23 consecutive batters at one point and finished with a four-hitter, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Cincinnati had three consecutive hits to open the second, but then had 23 batters in a row retired before Jay Bruce walked with two outs in the ninth. The Reds have dropped three of four.

Lohse (10-9) started the season 1-6 after missing most of spring training, signing with the Brewers as a free agent on March 25. Since the slow start, he has gone 9-3.

After allowing three consecutive singles to open the second, Lohse recorded an out on Devin Mesoraco's RBI fielder's choice grounder to third.
