Recap: Milwaukee vs. Cincinnati

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Ryan Braun's run-scoring double in the eighth inning lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds, completing a three-game sweep at Miller Park.

Braun, who was hitless in his previous 18 at-bats, poked a double to left- center to score Carlos Gomez. Gomez tied the game with an RBI single before Braun's double.

Earlier, Norichika Aoki reached on an infield single with two outs, stole second then moved to third on a throwing error by Reds catcher Dioner Navarro. Gomez followed with a single that just cleared the glove of a leaping Wilson Valdez to plate Aoki. Gomez then stole second before scoring on Braun's double.

"We didn't hit a lot in St. Louis, especially in scoring position," Ron Roenicke said. "We finally got some breaks this series with Gomez's blooper and Braun's hit and out starting pitching was outstanding."

Jim Henderson worked around a two-out walk in the ninth to pick up his second save in as many games.

Gomez finished the contest 2-for-4 with a solo home run.

John Axford (4-6) earned the win after tossing a perfect eighth. Randy Wolf started for Milwaukee, allowing two runs on six hits over six frames. Wolf struck out seven and walked just two in the win.

Newly-acquired Jonathan Broxton (1-1) absorbed the loss after giving up the game-tying and winning runs in the eighth. Mat Latos went seven innings, allowing just one run on three hits and struck out eight. Latos snapped a three-start winning streak.

Navarro's homer in the third put the Reds up 2-0. Miguel Cairo singled before Navarro lifted his first homer of the season over the wall in left.

With the bases loaded in the sixth the Brewers used two stellar defensive plays to keep it 2-0. First Cairo skied a foul ball near the wall in shallow right and Aoki made a running catch and fired a strike to the plate to keep Brandon Phillips at third. Navarro then ripped a hard grounder down the third base line but Ramirez made a spectacular diving stab and gunned it across the infield from his knees to end the inning.

"That was a big play by Ramirez, it kept the ball from going down the line. And Corey made a great play to dig it out," Wolf said. "The bullpen did a great job and we got some big hits. Gomez's hit (in the eighth) put a lot of pressure on them."

In the home half Gomez stroked a solo shot to center to trim the deficit to one run.

"(Latos) is one of the best pitchers of the game," Gomez said. "I was trying to take advantage of anything because I know he's tough. On the home run I tried to get something I could drive out of the ball park and just put a good swing on it."
