CINCINNATI -- Bases loaded, one out, down by a run with the heart of the order coming up. The Brewers had a great opportunity to pull one out, and all they managed were a couple of harmless pop-ups.Adam Duvall and Tucker Barnhart doubled home runs in the sixth inning Friday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory over Milwaukee that snapped a three-game losing streak.The bottom two teams in the NL Central went into the All-Star break with downturns. The last-place Reds pulled off a three-run rally, then barely held on in the ninth when Milwaukee scored a run but left the bases loaded.We had it set up, manager Craig Counsell said. We had an opportunity, for sure.Duvalls double off Matt Garza (1-3) cut Milwaukees lead to 3-2, the ball hitting the top of the wall in left.

The left-hander retired Gennett on a foul out. Ross Ohlendorf came in and got Ryan Braun to pop up, earning his second save in four chances.Gennett swung at a full-count fastball from Cingrani that might have forced in a run if hed taken it.It was probably ball four, but I got a borderline pitch there, Gennett said. I just got under it a little bit.The Brewers have lost three straight and 10 of 14.Billy Hamilton had a pair of singles, stole a base, and scored twice. He made it home from second on a fielders choice for Cincinnatis first run in the fourth inning.Hes the only guy in baseball that scores there, or even tries, really, Counsell said. Thats what speed does.A grounder that deflected off first base helped the Brewers go up 2-1 in the fifth. Ramon Flores singled and advanced on Garzas sacrifice. Jonathan Villar hit a slow grounder down the line that Joey Votto failed to charge, allowing the ball to hit first base and skip away for an RBI single.Garza gave up six hits and a pair of walks in 5 1/3 innings. Hes still working back into form after missing most of the first half of the season with a strained muscle in his side.Its coming back, Garza said. It feels good.
