CINCINNATI (AP) -- Khris Davis hit a pair of two-run homers in consecutive at-bats for the first multihomer game of his career, powering the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.
Scooter Gennett also homered for Milwaukee, which won at Great American Ball Park for only the second time in seven games this season.
The Reds lost for only the fifth time in their last 17 games, a surge that has tightened the NL Central race. They came in a season-high 18 games over .500.
Davis connected in the sixth off Homer Bailey and again in the eighth off Alfredo Simon (5-4), who had a rough inning. He also gave up Gennett's solo homer, which was upheld on review. Gennett also singled and doubled and scored twice.
