CINCINNATI (AP) - Don Lutz hit his first career home run, a three-run drive off the right-field foul pole in the second inning that led the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep.

Lutz, who made his big league debut on April 29, homered off Wily Peralta (3-3), and pinch-hitter Xavier Paul homered in the seventh, sending Milwaukee to its fourth straight loss and ninth in 10 games.

Bronson Arroyo (3-4) ended a four-start winless streak, allowing five hits in 6 2-3 scoreless innings with one walk and five strikeouts. He had been 0-3 since beating Philadelphia on April 15.

Sam LeCure struck out Jeff Bianchi looking to end the seventh, Jonathan Broxton allowed an unearned run in the eighth and Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth.

Peralta (3-3) gave up four runs - three earned - five hits and two walks in six innings.

Dusty Baker got his 1,603rd win as a manager, moving past Hall of Famer Fred Clarke into sole possession of 17th on baseball's career list, 16 behind Ralph Houk for 16th place.

Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce opened the second inning with singles and, one out later, Lutz lined a 1-0 pitch 366 feet off the pole.

Cincinnati scored an unearned run in the third. After a throwing error by Peralta on a comebacker, Bruce hit a possible inning-ending, double-play grounder, but shortstop Jen Segura's relay sailed over first baseman Yuniesky Betancourt for another error.

Paul led off the seventh with second homer of the season, a 404-foot drive into the right-field seats on an 0-2 pitch from Mike Fiers, recalled from the minor leagues on Saturday and making his first big league appearance since April 16. Paul has four pinch-homers, including two this season.

Alex Gonzalez scored on Ryan Hanigan's passed ball in the eighth.

NOTES: Reds RHP Johnny Cueto is scheduled to make his second injury rehabilitation start on Tuesday for Class A Dayton. Cueto has been on the DL since April 15 with a strained muscle in his upper right arm. LHP Manny Parra, on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained left pectoral muscle, and OF Chris Heisey, out since April 29 with strained right hamstring, both are due to start rehab assignments on Monday with Double-A Pensacola. ... The Reds are off Monday before opening a nine-game trip Tuesday at Miami. ... Milwaukee's 10-game trip resumes Monday for the opener of a four-game series at Pittsburgh.
