MILWAUKEE -

Yovani Gallardo gave up three hits in 6 1/3 innings and Logan Schafer had a two-run double to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.

Gallardo (9-9), who came off the disabled list Friday, struck out three to lead Milwaukee to its second straight win over the Reds.

Gallardo did not give up a hit until the fourth inning when Brandon Phillips singled after Joey Votto walked. But Phillips was caught in a rundown after the ball got away from Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

The Reds threatened to score in the seventh inning as Gallardo gave up a one-out single to Phillips. Gallardo was replaced by Brandon Kintzler, who gave up consecutive singles to Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick. But Kintzler got pinch hitter Xavier Paul to ground into a double play to end the inning.

Kintzler pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Jim Henderson struck out the side in the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.

Mat Latos (12-4) pitched seven innings for the Reds, giving up two runs and six hits. The two runs he gave up in the fourth inning snapped his scoreless streak at 19 innings. Lotus' career high is 21 consecutive shutout innings, most recently accomplished April 19 to May 5.

The Brewers scored the only runs of the game in the fourth inning. Khris Davis and Scooter Bennett singled with two outs. Schafer followed with a double to right field to score both runners. Schafer's double broke an 0-for-21 slump.

Notes: Brewers All-Star center fielder Carlos Gomez missed his second straight game. He is listed as day to day with a sprained right knee after making a catch at the wall during Thursday's 2-1 loss to Cincinnati. ... Ludwick got his first hit of the season in the fifth inning. Ludwick returned to the lineup this week after missing most of the season with a right shoulder injury. ... RHP Wily Peralta will start the series finale on Sunday for the Brewers. He will be opposed by the Reds' Homer Bailey.
