CINCINNATI (AP) - Brandon Phillips hit a tying triple with two
out in the fifth inning and scored the tiebreaking run on shortstop
Alex Gonzalez's error, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the Atlanta
Braves 2-1 on Sunday in the rubber game of the weekend series.

Ramon Hernandez was on first when Phillips lifted a fly ball
down the right-field line that eluded a diving Jason Heyward and
bounced into the corner. Orlando Cabrera followed with a routine
grounder to Gonzalez, but the former Reds infielder dropped the
ball, and Phillips scored while Cabrera easily beat the throw to
first.

The NL East-leading Braves have lost three of four and went 3-6
on their 10-day trip, earning one win at each stop.
