Recap: Cincinnati vs. Philadelphia

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Homer Bailey had an impressive day, firing eight innings of one-run ball and driving in two runs to help the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-1 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies in the rubber match of a three-game set at Great American Ball Park on Sunday.

Bailey (7-3) allowed just six hits and three walks while fanning seven to win his fourth consecutive start. He also hit the go-ahead two-run single in the fifth to support his own cause.

Billy Hamilton stroked a two-run home run for the Reds, winners of two straight after a three-game skid.

In his fourth career start, David Buchanan (1-3) lasted six innings, yielding four runs on six hits but tied a career best of six strikeouts in the loss.

Chase Utley drove in the lone run on a sacrifice fly for the Phillies, who continue to struggle with their eighth loss in nine contests.

Ben Revere and Jimmy Rollins both slapped one-out singles to left in the third. Revere stole third to put runners on the corners before Utley's sac fly to left that put the Phillies on the board first but that's all they could account for.

With runners on the corners and one out in the fourth, Cesar Hernandez hit a grounder to third baseman Todd Frazier, who made an easy throw home to keep the deficit at one. Buchanan then grounded into a force out to end the inning.

Frazier dropped a ball right over the glove of Rollins to start the fifth. Zack Cozart smacked a liner off the end of his bat down the right-field line for a double. Bailey sent a two-run single back up the middle with one out to give the Reds a 2-1 edge.

Hamilton then followed by crushing a hanging changeup for a two-run homer to left to increase the cushion to three.

Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth to capture his ninth save of the season.

Game Notes

With the win, Bailey has now beaten every National League team ... Philadelphia went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position, while leaving eight men on base ... The Phillies have lost five of six at Great American Ball Park.
