July 9, 2013 at 12:09 AM

MILWAUKEE, July 9 (UPI) -- Jonathan Lucroy bashed a two-run homer in the first inning Monday and the Milwaukee Brewers went on to post a 4-3 victory over Cincinnati.

Lucroy's blast with Jean Segura aboard put Milwaukee ahead to stay and the Brewers built a 4-1 lead with RBI from Segura (3-for-3) in the second and Rickie Weeks in the third.

Kyle Lohse (5-6) earned the victory, yielding three runs on nine hits and a walk over 6 2/3 innings.

Jim Henderson tossed a scoreless eighth and Fernando Rodriguez notched his ninth save despite allowing a walk in the ninth as the Brewers claimed the first of a three-game set.

Homer Bailey (5-7), coming off a no-hitter in his previous start, was roughed up for four runs on 10 hits in a 5 2/3-inning performance.

Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a solo homer for Cincinnati.
