Kolten Wong and Avisail Garcia each homered twice and Eric Lauer took a no-hitter into the sixth inning as the visiting Milwaukee Brewers extended their winning streak to five games with an 11-1 rout of the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

Manny Pina also homered for the Brewers (89-55), who scored seven runs in the first three innings and moved a franchise-record 34 games over .500.

Cleveland (69-72), which became the first team to ever be no-hit three times in a season on Saturday, failed to record a hit Sunday until Ryan Lavarnway singled with one out in the sixth.

Lauer (6-5) allowed one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out eight. Aaron Ashby pitched three scoreless innings for his first career save.

Milwaukee hit three homers against Aaron Civale (10-4), including Wong's eighth career leadoff homer in the first.

The Brewers added to their lead with three runs in the second. Pina, who delivered a run-scoring single during the rally, went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and came within a triple of hitting for the cycle.

Luis Urias and Eduardo Escobar also drove in runs during the second inning for Milwaukee, who outhit the Indians 13-4.

Garcia put the Brewers ahead 5-0 in the third with a leadoff homer to left field.

Civale retired the next two batters before Daniel Vogelbach walked in front of Pina, who blasted a two-run homer to left field.

Civale allowed seven runs on seven hits over three innings. He walked two and struck out three.

Milwaukee added a run in the top of the sixth before Cleveland broke a 15-inning scoreless streak with Myles Straw's run-scoring single in the bottom half of the inning.

Cleveland has lost eight of its last 10 games and recorded a total of four runs and seven hits during the three-game series.

Wong had three hits and belted his career-high 13th homer in the eighth off Bryan Shaw.

Garcia followed three batters later with a two-run homer. Garcia's 464-foot blast gave him a career-high 82 RBIs.
