CINCINNATI (AP) - Alfredo Simon moved into a tie for the National League lead with his 11th win and Billy Hamilton homered as the Cincinnati Reds snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.

Skip Schumaker and Joey Votto had run-scoring doubles for the Reds, who were coming off being swept in a three-game series at San Diego.

Simon (11-3), making his career-high 17th start, overcame Jonathan Lucroy's home run to move into a tie with the Dodgers' Zack Greinke and the Cardinals' Adam Wainwright for the NL lead in wins.

The Central Division-leading Brewers dropped their fourth straight, matching their longest losing streak of the season.

Simon allowed six hits and two runs with two walks, three strikeouts and a wild pitch in 7 1-3 innings to improve to 5-0 over his last seven starts.
