MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers’ offense finally woke up, Mike Cameron hit a pair of home runs to spoil Micah Owings’ pitching debut for the Cincinnati Reds and the Brewers avoided a series sweep with a 9-3 victory Wednesday.

Milwaukee broke a 3-all tie with five runs in the sixth inning, getting an RBI double by Bill Hall, a two-run double by Jason Kendall and two-run homer by Rickie Weeks to take an 8-3 lead.

The victory gave Milwaukee a break from a rough start to the season. The Brewers came into Wednesday’s game having lost four straight and six of their first eight.

Braden Looper (1-0) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings to earn his first win with the Brewers.
