Domonic Brown drove in the tiebreaking run on an infield grounder in the eighth and the Philadelphia Phillies snapped the Cincinnati Reds' six-game winning streak with a 5-3 victory on Friday night.

Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer and Cliff Lee threw seven sharp innings for the Phillies, who've won four of five.

Joey Votto hit a tying solo homer off Antonio Bastardo in the eighth, and Jay Bruce hit a two-run shot for Cincinnati.

Lee gave up two runs and six hits, striking out seven. Justin De Fratus (2-0) got two batters out in the eighth and Jonathan Papelbon finished for his eighth save in eight tries.
