The Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers meet Tuesday in Major League Baseball action at Miller Park.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Eric Thames added two more home runs to his total and drew two more walks Monday in an 11-7 defeat of the Cincinnati Reds. Healing process working in Rondo's favorPeterson excited for opportunity with Saints. He threw 93 pitches - 57 for strikes - and was pulled after four innings.

Davidson set a career-high with three hits and tied his best with four RBI.

Carlos Torres (1-2) pitched a scoreless inning of relief and was awarded the win.

Thames became the first Brewers player to hit 10 home runs in the team's first 21 games.

Miguel Gonzalez (3-0) lowered his ERA to 2.00, allowing an unearned run and two hits in eight innings.

Perez has raised his batting average from.179 to.261 over the course of two games by going 5 for 7 with a double, two triples, two home runs and seven RBIs. Later in the inning, Perez hit a three-run shot to put Milwaukee in front 4-0. Eric Thames leads the Brewers with 25 hits and 17 RBI while Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw have combined for 38 hits and 32 RBI. He extended his home-run streak against the Reds this season to five consecutive games with a solo shot to right in the first.

The biggest scare came in the top of the third, when a Orlando Arcia failed to field an easy grounder committing his first error in 43 games.

Braun was pinch-hit for by Jesus Aguilar in the sixth inning due to a bruised left foot suffered when he fouled three pitches off his foot in his first at-bat. X-rays were negative. He is day-to-day. Milwaukee optioned LHP Brent Suter to Colorado Springs in order to activate RHP Matt Garza to start Monday. Mesoraco likely would be activated for the weekend series in St. Louis. Mesoraco is now on the disabled list following right hip surgery and is rehabbing with Double-A Pensacola. Joey Votto (12-for-34, two homers) and Suarez (4-for-9) have had solid success against Garza, who went 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA in a pair of starts versus Cincinnati a year ago. He turned a 3-2 lead over to the bullpen on April 14, but Milwaukee scored four runs in the sixth off Blake Wood and Wandy Peralta and won 10-4.

Zach Davies (1-2, 8.24) pitches game two of the series tonight.

Feldman is 2-2 with a 3.46 ERA in five career starts against the Brewers. He took a no-decision at Cincinnati on April 15.
