Reds shortstop Zack Cozart hit a two-run home run in the first inning and finished 4-for-4 with one walk. It was the third four-hit game of his career, and first since 2013.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Scooter hammers a hanger: Eugenio Suarez singled and stole second in the sixth inning, when Scooter Gennett hit a 1-1 hanging curveball from Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff to right field for a double to score Suarez and tie the game at 3. It was the first run Eickhoff had allowed since Cozart’s two-run homer in the first that handed the Reds a 2-0 lead.

Three is better than none: Cesar Hernandez homered in the first, Michael Saunders homered in the second and Joseph homered in the fourth to score three runs in five innings against Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo and give the Phillies a 3-2 lead. It was the first time since May 20 that the Phillies scored three runs against a starting pitcher. The Phillies have not scored four or more runs against a starting pitcher since May 13, when they scored four against Washington’s Tanner Roark.
