Reds 8, Brewers 2
Edinson Volquez lowered his ERA to 2.29 and struck out 10. (AP)
Adam Dunn got hold of a hanging curveball in the first inning and sent it over the right-field wall, giving the Reds three early runs. That was all Edinson Volquez needed, although Dunn helped provide late insurance when he and Edwin Encarnacion went back-to-back in the ninth.
