CINCINNATI (AP) — Bronson Arroyo took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Tuesday night before giving up a three-run lead, but Drew Stubbs led off the bottom of the inning with a homer, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

After Milwaukee pulled even with three hits in the eighth, Stubbs connected on he first pitch from John Axford (1-5) for his first homer since June 2. Jay Bruce also had a three-run homer.

The defending NL Central champions fell to 8{ games behind the first-place Reds, matching their biggest deficit of the season.
