Cincinnati, OH (NNCNOW.com) --- Bronson Arroyo ended a four-start winless streak, and Don Lutz hit his first career homer as the Reds completed a three-game sweep, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 on Sunday.

Lutz hit a three-run blast that went off the right-field foul pole in the second inning for the Reds. Xavier Paul added a solo shot for Cincinnati in the seventh, and Arroyo allowed just five hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Brewers starter Wily Peralta gave up four runs, three earned on five hits and two walks in six innings.

Milwaukee (15-20) returns to the diamond on Monday as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Pirates at 6:05 p.m.
