Phillips' two-run homer lifts Reds over Dodgers
Thursday, May 29, 2014 11:00 AM
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Brandon Phillips hit a two-run homer against Clayton Kershaw and Homer Bailey pitched seven effective innings, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Bailey (5-3) allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six.
Yasiel Puig, who has reached base safely in 29 straight games, led off the Dodgers' sixth with an opposite-field homer to right-center to narrow the gap to 3-2. But former Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton retired Puig and Hanley Ramirez on flyballs for the last two outs in the eighth. Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his fifth save.
Kershaw (3-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings and struck out nine.
Phillips, a four-time Gold Glove second baseman, robbed Andre Ethier of an RBI single in the first when he made a diving stop of his grounder in the hole and threw him out after a leadoff double by Dee Gordon. Bailey escaped the inning unscathed.
