MILWAUKEE -- Mark Reynolds homered twice to help the Milwaukee Brewers swept the three-game series from the Cincinnati Reds with a 5-1 win on Wednesday.


Kyle Lohse pitched 6 2/3 strong innings to hand the Reds their sixth straight loss since the All-Star break.


Lohse (11-4) walked two, struck out three and allowed four hits, the last to pinch-hitter Donald Lutz who doubled. Reliever Zach Duke retired Billy Hamilton on a chopper back to the mound to end the seventh.


Reynolds connected on a 1-1 pitch from Reds starter Mike Leake (7-9) for his 15th home run of the season. Rickie Weeks was on with a double to start the sixth.


Reynolds' second home run came off reliever Jumbo Diaz in the eighth.
