MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier each hit two-out grand slams, powering the Cincinnati Reds past the Milwaukee Brewers 16-10 on Tuesday night.

Zack Cozart hit two homers for the Reds, whose offense has reawakened for 22 runs in two games in Milwaukee after manager Bryan Price went on a profanity-laced tirade in his pregame media session Monday.

Mike Fiers (0-3) was shelled for eight runs in four innings for Milwaukee, which lost its seventh straight. The Brewers have the worst record in the majors at 2-12.

For a change, the offense wasn’t the main problem for the Brewers. They broke out for their highest-scoring game of the season despite a lineup littered with backups because of injuries.

Elian Herrera hit a grand slam in the sixth to get the Brewers to 13-10.

The Reds had more punch. Cozart led off the top of the seventh with a solo shot.

Before the game, Brewers 2nd baseman Scooter Gennett joined Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy on the disabled list after he cut his left hand  in the shower.
