Reds win on Frazier single in 10th

CINCINNATI (AP) - Todd Frazier got a second opportunity and made the most of it.
Chris Heisey scored from first base on Frazier's 10th-inning double into the left-field corner, and the Cincinnati Reds rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 Sunday.
Frazier's soft line drive resulted in an inning-ending double play in sixth, when the Reds had loaded the bases against Kyle Lohse.
"Fortunately, I got another chance," Frazier said. "The best thing about baseball is you get another chance tomorrow. This time, I only wanted three innings."
Heisey drew a two-out, four-pitch walk from Tyler Thornburgh (3-1), and Frazier followed with a line drive that one-hopped the wall. Heisey beat shortstop Jean Segura's off-target relay to the plate to give the Reds three wins in their four-game series against the team with the majors' best record at 21-11.
Third base coach Steve Smith had been criticized by some for having runners thrown out at home several times this season.
Brandon Phillips greeted reliever Brandon Kintzler with a tying 425-foot homer to center with one out in the eighth, Phillips' second homer this season and first since April 5.
Sam LeCure (1-1) pitched the 10th for the win.
Lohse allowed a season-high eight hits, including Brayan Pena's home run. Lohse lasted 6 1-3 innings, giving up two runs with one walk and two strikeouts.
Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon, who hadn't allowed more than two runs in any of his first five starts, gave up three in seven innings including solo home runs by Scooter Gennett and Khris Davis.
