MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Brewers head to Texas today for a night game against the Astros.

Yesterday, Carlos Villanueva pitched seven scoreless innings and Joe Dillon drove in a career-high four runs, to lead Milwaukee to a 5-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Milwaukee, which scored all its runs with two outs, has won 10 of 15.

The Brewers entered one game behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the N.L. Central.

Villanueva was not spectacular, but kept getting out of trouble early and stuck around for his longest appearance this season.

He scattered six hits, walked three and struck out four to help the Brewers surpass their win total from last year.

They're now 76-72.

Cincinnati had ample opportunities early, with runners in scoring position in the first, third and fourth.

But they couldn't score until rallying against Milwaukee's bullpen in the eighth.
