MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Sean Halton hit a solo homer with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-5 comeback victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

Halton's home run came off reliever Zach Duke (1-2), the fifth Cincinnati pitcher. It was Halton's third homer of the season and first career walk-off.

Jean Segura sparked a rally with a two-run triple and Carlos Gomez made a game-saving catch for Milwaukee, which dealt a big blow to the Reds' pursuit of the NL Central title. The Brewers entered the eighth trailing 5-2. Segura's hit came after Reds relievers walked the first two batters of the inning. Jonathan Lucroy followed with a sacrifice fly to tie it.

Jim Henderson (4-5) pitched a scoreless inning in relief to pick up the win.
