Brewers take over 1st place with 8-6 win over Reds


Christian Yelich hit his 30th home run and the Milwaukee Brewers got the win over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night 8-6. The Brewers are now in first place all alone with the win and Chicago Cubs' loss.

Yelich is now the first Brewer to hit 30 home runs before the All-Star break. Keston Hiura and Lorenzo Cain also hit home runs for the Brewers, who used a five-run seventh inning to rally from a 3-1 deficit.

Adrian Houser, who was recently moved into the starting rotation from the bullpen, pitched five innings and gave up three runs.

The four-game series continues Tuesday night in Cincinnati.
