Phillips flirts with cycle in Reds win

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - Brandon Phillips tripled, homered and doubled in his first three at-bats, Greg Reynolds beat his former team for his first major league win in two years, and the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Colorado Rockies 8-3 on Saturday night.

Phillips scored three times, drove in two runs and just missed becoming the first Reds player to hit for the cycle since Eric Davis did it against the San Diego Padres on June 2, 1989.

Phillips struck out and grounded sharply to third in his last two at-bats.

He began the night with an RBI triple that rolled to the center-field wall, and scored on Joey Votto's groundout. Phillips connected in the third off Juan Nicasio for his 17th home run, then doubled to left in the fifth and scored.
