Frazier followed with his two-run shot the next inning to put Cincinnati up for good. Hamilton led off the inning with a single and drew a few pickoff throws before Frazier homered on an 0-1 fastball up in the zone.

Leake gave up Jonathan Lucroy’s homer to center leading off the bottom of the fifth to get the Brewers within 5-4 before the Reds broke it open with five runs in the eighth. Brewers reliever Rob Wooten allowed six straight hits without recording an out and watched his ERA balloon by nearly two runs to 4.98.

“I did what I could, but our offense really came around today,” Leake said.

Lucroy added a double to go 2 for 4 and raised his average to .336.

NOTES: Reds LHP Tony Cingrani pitched scoreless two innings in his first relief appearance since getting bumped from the rotation following the return of starter Mat Latos from the disabled list. … Brewers LHP Tom Gorzelanny tossed a scoreless sixth inning in his season debut after coming off the disabled list Saturday. Gorzelanny had offseason shoulder surgery. … The Reds have an off-day Monday before starting a series Tuesday in Pittsburgh. … RHP Wily Peralta (6-5) has returned to the Brewers after attending to a personal matter in his native Dominican Republic.
