MILWAUKEE (AP) - Ryan Braun snapped an 0-for-18 slump with an RBI double in the eighth inning, lifting Milwaukee to a three-game sweep of Cincinnati with a 3-2 win Wednesday.
Jonathan Broxton (1-1) started the eighth with the Reds leading 2-1. He retired the first two batters before an infield single by Norichka Aoki. With Carlos Gomez up, Aoki stole second and took third on catcher Dioner Navarro’s throwing error. Gomez hit a soft liner that just got over the outstretched glove of shortstop Wilson Valdez and Aoki scored to tie the game.
Broxton had given up only three hits and no earned runs in his last four outings.
John Axford (4-6) pitched the eighth for the win and Jim Henderson got his second career save in as many days.
The Reds’ fourth straight loss matched their season-worst set June 18-22.
GIANTS 15, CARDINALS 0
Scutaro had an RBI single in the third, a two-run double in the eighth and then hit his third career slam, connecting in the ninth off Mitchell Boggs.
Ahead 2-0, the Giants broke it open with five runs in the sixth. They turned the game into a rout with four runs in the eighth and four more in the ninth.
Vogelsong (10-5) gave up three hits in seven innings. He has gone at least six innings in all 21 of his starts, the longest such streak for a Giants pitcher since Bill Swift did it 24 straight times in 1993.
Joe Kelly (2-5) took the loss.
