Joey Votto and Jay Bruce both hit homeruns to send the Reds to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday afternoon. Votto’s two run shot in the 8th scored Johnny Gomes as the tying run, and as he crossed the plate, he gave Cincinnati the lead.

Philadelphia got the offensively party started off Cincinnati veteran Aaron Harang. Catcher Dane Sardinha blasted a three run homerun in the fourth inning, which ended up being the only offense Philadelphia received.

The Phillies ended the game with nine hits, including two from Shane Victorino and two from Wilson Valdez. Brandon Phillips, Johnny Gomes and Jay Bruce each picked up two hits for the Reds. Catcher Ramon Hernandez finished the game with three hits.

Roy Halladay took the loss for the Phillies. The veteran pitched eight inning, allowing 13 hits and 4 runs. He struck out 10 batters, and did not walk a man, but the homeruns were what cost him the game. He is now 9-7.

Harang pitched the first 6.1 innings, allowing 8 hits and 3 runs, while striking out 5 and walking 1. He was replaced by Logan Ondrusek, who pitched to just two batters, retiring them both. Arthur Rhodes picked up the win, throwing a hitless 8th inning. Then, in the ninth inning Francisco Cordero picked up his 21st save of the season.

Cincinnati moved to 44-35 on the season and 27-19 at the Great American Ball Park. The Reds will head to Chicago, for a four game series against the Cubs over the weekend. Philadelphia remains in third place in the MLB National League East with the loss. The Phillies are now 41-35 overall and 19-19 on the road.
