CINCINNATI (AP) — Kyle Lohse made the most of another wasteful day for Milwaukee’s offense, throwing a two-hitter and driving in a run on Wednesday night for a 5-0 victory that forestalled elimination from the playoffs a bit longer.

Even with the victory, the Brewers would been eliminated from the wild card race; but the Dodgers kept alive by beating the Giants.

The Brewers led the NL Central for 150 days, but fell apart at the end. Since June 28th, they’ve gone 30-45. The offense has unraveled, scoring two or fewer runs in each of the previous six games.

Lohse (13-9) gave up a pair of singles by Jack Hannahan in his second shutout of the season. Lohse was 2-1 in five starts against the Reds this season with a 2.13 ERA.

The Crew trails San Francisco by 4 games with 4 to play.  so one more loss by Ron Roenicke’s team, or one more win by the Giants would end their slim hopes of making the post-season party.
