CINCINNATI, July 22 (UPI) -- Jose Acevedo yielded two hits in seven innings and Russell Branyan smacked a grand slam Monday night as Cincinnati thumped Milwaukee, 11-2.

With the victory, the Reds snapped a seven-game home losing streak.

Jose Guillen added a solo homer and a two-run single for the Reds, who had lost 12 of 15 overall posted their fifth straight win over Milwaukee. They swept three games at Miller Park heading into the All-Star break to end an eight-game losing streak.
