Brewers top Reds 5-4 for 4-game split

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy greeted Ross Ohlendorf with a tiebreaking home run leading off the eighth inning, then caught Billy Hamilton stealing for the final out as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 Sunday for their second straight come-from-behind win.

Lucroy lined the second pitch from Ohlendorf (3-3) over the left-field fence to cap a comeback from a 4-1 deficit and to salvage a four-game split.

Ryan Braun homered the second straight game and is 15 for 35 (.429) during an eight-game hitting streak.

Milwaukee won 13-7 in 10 innings on Saturday after trailing 4-0 and 6-2.
