CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jason Marquis ended Cincinnati's long streak of clutch-hitting futility with a run-scoring single, and slumping Jay Bruce homered and drove in three runs on Monday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Reds ended a three-game losing streak by beating the worst team in the majors, one that's trying everything to get going. Manager Ron Roenicke left slumping Ryan Braun out of the lineup on Monday to change things up.
All it led to was another loss that dropped the Brewers to 4-16.
Marquis (2-1) had an RBI single during a four-run second inning that snapped the Reds' 0-for-20 streak with runners in scoring position.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds put starter Homer Bailey on the 15-day disabled list on Monday night with a sprained ligament in his right elbow, the same one he had surgery on last September.
Bailey was limited during spring training while he completed his comeback from surgery on the forearm where it attaches to the elbow. He made two starts, throwing 92 pitches in a 5-2 loss at St. Louis and 79 pitches in a 4-2 loss at Milwaukee.
Bailey is 0-1 with a 5.56 ERA. His next scheduled start was Thursday at Atlanta.
The Reds recalled right-hander Carlos Contreras from Triple-A Louisville. Contreras made 17 relief appearances last season, going 0-1 with a 6.52 ERA.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Alex Gordon, Mike Moustakas and the Kansas City Royals kept AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber winless this season, beating the Cleveland Indians 6-2 Monday night.
Kluber (0-3) gave up six runs, four of them earned, and 10 hits in 6 1-3 innings. After going 18-9 last year, he hasn't won in five starts and has a 4.24 ERA.
Gordon drove in two runs, and had a go-ahead double in the sixth. Moustakas had four hits, including an RBI single in the seventh, and is 11 for 25 lifetime against Kluber.
The Indians committed a season-high three errors and have lost seven of 10.
Jason Vargas (2-1) gave up two runs in five innings.
