Estrada, Brewers blank Reds 3-1

Caleb Gindl homered for the second straight game, and rejuvenated Marco Estrada held Cincinnati's lineup to one single over seven shutout innings on Sunday, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-1 victory over the Reds.
The Brewers took two of three from the Reds, who remain right behind Pittsburgh and St. Louis in the NL Central race.
Estrada (6-4) gave up Shin-Soo Choo's leadoff single in the first inning, and then left the Reds swinging at nothing. He walked two, fanned a season-high nine and retired 10 batters on popups or fly balls -- usually a risky thing in homer-friendly Great American Ball Park.
Jim Henderson gave up Joey Votto's 20th homer in the ninth inning while picking up his 21st save in 24 chances.
