CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Matt Garza threw a two-hitter for his fourth career shutout, and the Milwaukee Brewers ended their four-game losing streak by beating the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 on Saturday night. Despite a slump that matched their longest of the season, the Brewers maintained the best record in the league and a comfortable lead in the NL Central. Aramis Ramirez singled home a run in the first inning off Homer Bailey (8-5), who gave up seven hits through eight innings. Two Brewers were thrown out at the plate. Garza (6-5) has been one of the Brewers best starters lately, going 4-1 in his last seven games. He retired the first 12 batters in order before Brandon Phillips led off the fifth with a single for Cincinnatis first hit. He allowed two hits, two walks and fanned nine while going the distance for the first time this season, throwing 111 pitches. It was his first shutout since 2010, when he threw Tampa Bays first no-hitter for a 5-0 win over Detroit. It was Milwaukees sixth shutout of the season. The Reds were blanked for the 10th time. Right fielder Ryan Braun struck out swinging in the first inning, and then left the game in the second with spasms in his lower back. Braun is batting .289 with 11 homers and a team-leading 49 RBIs. He missed 14 games in May with a strained oblique. Milwaukee hasnt had much success in Cincinnati lately, dropping 11 of its last 16. The teams have split the first two games of the series, leaving the fourth-place Reds 7 games back. Milwaukee has been alone atop the division since April 9. Jonathan Lucroy doubled with two outs in the first and scored on Ramirezs single to left. Garza made the run stand up by matching his season high with eight innings. Zack Cozart doubled in the sixth inning, the only Red to reach second base. The Reds kept it close by nailing a pair of Brewers at the plate. Ramirez singled with two outs in the sixth and tried to score on Khris Davis double to right, but shortstop Zack Cozart relayed the throw from Jay Bruce in time to get him sliding in. Mark Reynolds also tried to score from first base on Scooter Gennetts double to right in the seventh, but second baseman Brandon Phillips relay from Bruce also was on target.

Price had 22 points and Lavoy Allen added 12 — also season highs for both players — as the Pacers won for the first time since the season opener.

Thats what its been for the couple years for me. I am staying until they tell me to go. Im going to keep playing as hard as I can.Solomon Hill added 13 points for the Pacers, and his dunk on Indiana native and former Butler star Gordon Hayward in the third quarter may have been the turning point for Indiana.The Pacers were trailing 60-57 with a little more than 5 minutes left in the third when Hill drove to the rim.It was just being aggressive, Hill said. I feel like they dont have too much depth at the wing spot so you have to attack the guys that are out there. You want to get him (Hayward) tired, you want to wear him out. He cant be a guy off a back-to-back that plays 40-pluus minutes.ddddddddddddHayward scored 30 points to lead Utah.

Build on the things we are doing well. Just understand that we can be better and correct the things we are not doing well enough.TIP-INSJazz: Former Indiana prep standout and Butler star Gordon Hayward returned home Monday.
