MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run homer off Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 7-6 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Jean Segura sparked the winning rally when he beat out a leadoff chopper to shortstop for his third hit. Lucroy then drove a 1-2 pitch to left for his 17th homer, snapping Cincinnati's five-game winning streak.

Lucroy clapped his hands as he rounded first base and ditched his batting helmet before heading into a crowd of teammates surrounding home plate. It was his first career game-ending homer.

Chapman (3-5) had converted each of his last six save opportunities.
