Kolten Wong homers 3 times as Brewers beat Reds 5-1

CINCINNATI (AP) — Kolten Wong hit a career-high three homers and drove in five runs, helping Brandon Woodruff and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-1 on Thursday night.

Wong hit a two-run drive in the second inning against Hunter Greene. He hit another two-run shot in the sixth off Dauri Moreta and a solo drive in the eighth against Joel Kuhnel.

Wong has a career-high 15 homers on the season.

“I’m definitely not a guy who hits three home runs very often,” Wong said. “I’ve had a chance to do it a couple of times, but I tried to do too much. I just tried not to do too much and keep my swing tight.”

Milwaukee finished with just four hits, but each of Wong’s first two homers occurred after leadoff walks.
