Reds lose fifth straight on walk-off

(FOX19) -

Jonathan Lucroy hit a ninth inning walk-off home run as Milwaukee sent the Reds to a fifth straight loss.

Lucroy hit a solo home run down the left field line off Sam LeCure for his second homer of the night in a Brewers 4-3 win.

"Let's forget the silver lining tonight, we gave up four home runs and lost 4-3," said Bryan Price. "I don't have much more to say than that. We've got to step it up, there's really nothing else to say, we've got to play better."

Reds pitchers only gave up six hits, but four solo home runs.  Homer Bailey allowed three home runs in six innings.

Trailing the entire game, the Reds tied Milwaukee with a two-run seventh inning.  Brayan Pena was the only Red with a multi-hit game.

The Reds have lost each of the five games they've played since the end of the All Star break and now trail the Brewers by 4 ½ games in the NL Central.

"We're all disappointed," added Price. "It's just we haven't executed. We just haven't played terribly well. We need to play a lot better than we have. You  know, played hard, just haven't won."

Zack Cozart left after being hit on the hand by a pitch.  He had x-rays on two fingers on his right hand, but the x-rays were negative.

The Reds finish their series with Milwaukee on Wednesday trying to avoid a second straight sweep to start the second half.
