MILWAUKEE — Justin Smoak homered and drove in three runs as the Milwaukee Brewers cooled off Trevor Bauer and snapped a four-game skid with a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
Omar Narvaez added a solo home run to help the Brewers win their opener of a 10-game homestand. Curt Casali and Eugenio Suarez homered for Cincinnati. Bauer began the night with an 0.68 ERA that led the majors.
But he fell behind 4-0 in the first four innings Monday as the Brewers reversed their season-long trend of slow starts.
