The slumping Milwaukee Brewers were swept out of the Great American Ballpark on Mothers Day, falling to the Reds for the third straight time, 5-1. Donald Lutz became the first German born player to hit a major league home run by swatting a three run blast off the right field foul pole against Wily Peralta in the second inning. Xavier Paul also went deep for the Reds, a solo shot off just recalled reliever Mike Fiers in the seventh. The only Brewers run was scored by Alex Gonzalez on a passed ball in the 8th. Peralta (3-3) took the loss, working six innings, giving up five hits and four runs, three of them were earned as Milwaukee comitted a pair of errors. Bronson Arroyo pitched six and two thirds scoreless innings, allowing five hits for his third win against four losses. Milwaukee managed 7 hits in the game, Jean Segura and Yuniesky Betancourt each had a pair. The Brewers are now just 1-9 in the month of May and have slipped to 15-20 on the season, seven and a half games behind division leading St. Louis. The Brewers road trip continues with a four game series in Pittsburgh. Marco Estrada faces A.J. Burnett in the opener at PNC Park Monday night. Pre-game coverage begins at 5:30 PM on WTAQ.
