Weeks' homer lifts Brewers over Reds

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Rickie Weeks hit a solo home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over Cincinnati to even their three-game series.

Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun also belted solo homers for the Brewers, who bounced back from a 9-5 loss in the series opener on Monday.

Braun homered in his second at-bat -- reaching base for the 23rd straight game to start the season to tie the team record set by Robin Yount in 1983.

Weeks and Yuniesky Betancourt led Milwaukee with two hits apiece and reliever Kameron Loe (2-1) earned the win in a hitless eighth inning.

Brewers starter Marco Estrada gave up two runs, two hits and three walks in seven frames, striking out five. John Axford pitched a perfect ninth for his fifth save.
