MILWAUKEE (AP) — Joey Votto scored the go-ahead run in the ninth after an inning-ending double play was overturned, and the Cincinnati Reds snapped their 11-game losing streak with a tense 7-6 win Saturday over the Milwaukee Brewers. The Reds completed their comeback from a 6-1 deficit when umpires ruled after the review that infielder Scooter Gennett didn't have his foot on second while trying to turn a double play on Adam Duvall's bouncer. The review came after manager Bryan Price, who was out of challenges, spoke to crew chief Jim Joyce.
