Yonder Alonso had an RBI double and Corky Miller hit a two-run home run in the seventh for the Reds, who have posted 90 win for the first time since 1999.
 
Bruce belted a two-run homer in the third to open the scoring and added a solo shot in the fifth to put the Reds ahead, 4-1.
 
Milwaukee got back in the game with a three-run seventh, tying the game 4-4 on a three-run homer to deep left by Casey McGehee, his 23rd of the season. Alonso and Miller answered for Cincinnati in the home half of the frame and the Reds bullpen closed things out.
