Rowdy Téllez sets RBI record with Brewers, Peralta wins his first

Rowdy Tellez hit a pair of homers and set a franchise record with eight RBIs as the Milwaukee Brewers blew out the Cincinnati Reds 18-4 on Wednesday night.

Tellez broke a 2-2 tie and put the Brewers ahead for good with a 453-foot grand slam off Vladimir Gutierrez (0-5) in the third inning.

In the sixth, he hit a two-run shot off Dauri Moreta. The ball traveled 431 feet. Tellez capped his big night with a two-run double that hit the right field wall in the eighth inning off Matt Reynolds, an infielder who improvised as a pitcher, when Cincinnati had already capitulated.

Tellez has hit four home runs in his last four games, bringing his total to seven this season.

Kolten Wong also homered for Milwaukee. Andrew McCutchen went 4-for-5, scored twice and drove in four runs.

Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBIs.

The Reds have lost eight in a row and 19 of 20. They have also lost in their last 12 visits.

It’s the first time since 1945 that Cincinnati has spun 12 home park trips in the same season.

The victory went to Dominican starter Freddy Peralta (1-1), who recovered from a turbulent opening. He allowed three runs in five innings, with seven strikeouts and two walks.
