MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of a potential go-ahead homer with a spectacular catch in center field in the ninth inning, saving the Milwaukee Brewers' 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

Jonathan Lucroy homered for the third consecutive game for last-place Milwaukee, which had dropped three of four. Jean Segura had three hits off Homer Bailey in the right-hander's first start since his second career no-hitter.

But Gomez made the biggest play of the game when he made a perfectly timed jump to grab Votto's drive to center for the final out of the game, sending a charge through the crowd on an otherwise sleepy night at Miller Park.

Kyle Lohse (5-6) pitched into the seventh inning for his fourth consecutive winning decision.
