India, Castellanos homer to back Gray; Reds beat Brewers 5-1

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Jonathan India hit a three-run homer, Nick Castellanos also went deep and the Cincinnati Reds beat the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 to avoid a three-game sweep.

Sonny Gray allowed three hits in six scoreless innings for the Reds, who still trail the Brewers by 8 1/2 games.

Cincinnati does hold the second NL wild card spot.

Gray struck out six while walking only two batters and didn’t give up his first hit until Avisail Garcia’s two-out single in the fourth.

It was the second consecutive scoreless outing for Gray, who hasn’t allowed a run in his last 13 innings.
