Cincinnati doesn’t hit much, but ends 5-game losing streak

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

Cincinnati’s five-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 then hit 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.

Aroldis Chapman retired all three batters he faced in the ninth for his third save in three tries.
