Reds snap 5-game slump, beat Phillies 4-2

CINCINNATI (AP) - Brandon Phillips drove in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single in the eighth inning and the Cincinnati Reds ended their 5-game losing streak by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 on Monday night.

Cincinnati's 5-game slide matched its longest slump from last season, when it won the NL Central.

The Reds still didn't hit much, but left-hander Cliff Lee helped them by letting in a run on a wild pitch in the seventh. Todd Frazier followed with a sacrifice fly for a 2-0 lead.

Bronson Arroyo (2-1) gave up pinch-hitter Chase Utley's two-run homer in the eighth, but Cincinnati rallied against the Philadelphia bullpen. The Reds loaded the bases against Jeremy Horst (0-1), and Phillips singled off Mike Adams to break the tie.

Aroldis Chapman got his third save.
