Brewers Slug Their Way Back To First Spank Reds 10-5

The Milwaukee Brewers started off their game Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds with a bang, three bangs to be exact! Milwaukee became only the third team in MLB history to start off a game with three consecutive home runs as they toppled the Reds 10-5. The Brewers gave a rude welcome to Cincinnati starter Phil Dumatrait, as Richie Weeks, J.J. Hardy, and Ryan Braun all went yard to lead off the game. Dumatrait never made it out of the first giving up hits to the first five batters he faced, getting nobody out and leaving responsible for four runs. The Brewers weren't done after the first as Weeks and Braun both went deep again and Hardy had a pair of two-baggers, before the fourth inning was over. Ben Sheets got the win for the Brewers seeing his record improve to 12-4. The win put Milwaukee in sole possession of first place in the N.L. Central leading the Chicago Cubs by one game. The Cubs lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates ironically by the same score: 10-5.
