Homer Bailey didn't let the Milwaukee Brewers' earlier success bother him one bit.

Bailey allowed one run and three hits in eight innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Brewers 9-1 on Sunday.

Bailey (8-10) won his third straight decision by beating a team that has given him trouble in the past. He improved his career mark against Milwaukee to 2-7 in 14 starts with his first win in three starts against the Brewers this season.

"For some reason this team has usually done pretty well against me" Bailey said. "I never really thought about it so I just kind of went out there and tried to pitch a little bit."

He did more than a little bit against the Brewers thanks to good fastball location and a tough curveball.

"He's got incredible stuff" Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett said. "He was getting ahead for the most part. When guys with good stuff get ahead it makes it that much harder."

Gennett's double in the second and Khris Davis' solo shot in the fifth and infield single in the seventh were the only hits for the Brewers.

"We didn't have that timely hit" Gennett said. "He was down for the most part in and out of the zone working in and out of the zone with pretty much all of his offspeed pitches which makes it quite tough to hit."

Bailey walked one and struck out eight including Juan Francisco three times.

"Since we have seen these guys so many times I am starting to get a better feel for them" Bailey said after earning his first win at Miller Park.

Bailey had been 0-3 in five career starts in Milwaukee.
