GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Lyle Overbay got good news in the morning and celebrated with his bat.

Overbay, who was told Sunday that he had made the Brewers' opening day roster, had two doubles and a single in Milwaukee's 9-1 victory over the Reds.

Jonathan Lucroy drove in three runs with a double and a homer as the Brewers roughed up Mike Leake, scoring six runs in the second. Milwaukee had four doubles in the inning.

Logan Schaefer doubled and scored in the first and added a double in the second.

Jay Bruce had an RBI double for the Reds off starter Matt Garza, the free-agent signee. Garza has one more scheduled spring training start.

Lucroy's solo home run off Pedro Beato in the seventh was his second of the spring.
