CINCINNATI (AP) -- Rookie Taylor Jungmann allowed four hits in eight innings and the Milwaukee Brewers extended their winning streak to eight games with a 6-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

Gerardo Parra and Adam Lind hit seventh-inning home runs for the Brewers, who finished off their second undefeated road trip of at least seven games in franchise history.

It's the Brewers' longest winning streak since they won nine in a row from April 4-13 of last season.

Cincinnati starter Mike Leake (5-5) lost for the first time since May 27. Leake, who was 3-0 in six June starts, allowed eight hits and three runs with three walks and four strikeouts in six innings.

Jungmann, who made his major league debut on June 9, retired the first 12 batters he faced before Jay Bruce led off the fifth with a double into the right-field corner.

GOLF-McILROY INJURY

His spokesman, Sean O'Flaherty, McIlroy would continue to assess the severity of the injury.
