Recap: Milwaukee vs. Cincinnati

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Clark hit a three-run homer to highlight a five-run seventh inning as the Milwaukee Brewers topped the Cincinnati Reds 9-2 in the rubber match of a three-game series at Miller Park.

Jonathan Lucroy had three hits and two RBI for the Brewers, who remained 1 1/2 games behind Pittsburgh for the NL's second wild-card spot. Matt Garza (8-8) gave up a run on four hits, walked three and struck out six in six-plus innings.

Todd Frazier hit a solo home run in the sixth for the Reds, while Mike Leake (11-12) allowed three runs on eight hits and walked three over six innings.

Leake pitched out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the first and ran into trouble again in the second. Mark Reynolds led off with a walk and Jean Segura followed with a single. After being sacrificed to third by Garza, Reynolds scored on a sacrifice fly by Carlos Gomez.

Lucroy singled home two in the fourth to make it 3-0, and the Brewers blew the game open against the Cincinnati bullpen.

Scooter Gennett hit an RBI single and back-to-backs walks by Lucroy and Ryan Braun forced in another run.
