PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Anthony DeSclafani threw seven effective innings, Brandon Phillips had three hits and two RBIs and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 Thursday night to avoid a three-game sweep.
DeSclafani (4-4) allowed four runs and six hits. He left with two runners on in the eighth and both scored. Aroldis Chapman, whose streak of 29 straight saves ended Wednesday night, tossed a perfect ninth for his 10th save in 11 tries.
Aaron Harang (4-6) had his worst start with the Phillies, allowing a season-high six runs — five earned — and six hits with five walks in 5 2-3 innings. Harang pitched at least six innings in each of his first 11 starts and gave up more than three earned runs once. His ERA rose from 2.02 to 2.45.
