Brewers Lose to Reds 3-5

Luke Hudson has a perfect record against Milwaukee -- and can't explain why.

Hudson improved to 3-0 in four career starts against the Brewers by giving up three runs and five hits -- including two homers by Rickie Weeks -- leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-3 victory Friday night.

Hudson (4-5) walked five and struck out three in six innings to win his third straight start, but he didn't have an answer for his success against the Brewers.

"I couldn't tell you," Hudson said. "They have good hitters over there. I have no idea."
Hudson also drove in a run in the fifth, helping Cincinnati to its fourth straight win and ninth in a row on the road.

"Everybody is confident," said Hudson, who has just eight career victories. "Everybody is going out there expecting to win. Everyone is on a roll."

Weeks had three hits for Milwaukee, which has lost four straight after returning to the .500 mark with a win Sunday at Philadelphia.
Tomo Ohka (7-6) will face Ramon Ortiz (6-8) on Saturday.
