Slugger Rowdy Tellez slammed two home runs and set a Brewers team record with eight runs batted in during an 18-3 pasting of Cincinnati. A grand slam by Tellez in the third inning broke a 2-2 tie and the slugfest was on for the normally light-hitting Milwaukee team. Pitching has carried manager Craig Counsell’s squad to a 17-and-8 record and first place in the National League Central standings – but not Wednesday night. Freddy Peralta picked up his first win of the season and the score was so lopsided there was no save to be recorded. The stumbling Reds team record fell to 3-and-21, the worst in baseball. Adrian Houser starts for the Brewers this afternoon (Thursday) as they go for the sweep.
