Brandon Kintzler hurled 1 2/3 scoreless innings and Jim Henderson struck out the side in the ninth for his 18th save as the Brewers took a second straight from their division rivals.

Milwaukee scored both its runs on a Logan Schafer double in the fourth inning.

Mat Latos (12-4) was hung with his first loss since July 11, a stretch of six starts, yielding two runs on six hits and three walks in a seven-inning effort. He fanned six.

The Reds' lead over Arizona for the second National League wild card spot shrank to four games.
