Phillies Fall to Reds

Jay Bruce homered for the third straight game on Tuesday night, hitting a two-run shot that sent the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies with first baseman Joey Votto watching from the bench.

Votto was activated off the disabled list before the game, but didn’t play. Cincinnati went 32-16 without him, taking control of the NL Central.

Bruce’s 31st homer in the sixth inning ended a four-game winning streak by Kyle Kendrick (8-10). Bruce has homered in four of his last five games.

Mat Latos (12-4) gave up one run — on a bases-loaded walk — and four hits in seven innings.

Jimmy Rollins doubled off Latos in the fifth inning, making him the fourth Phillies player to reach 2,000 career hits.
