The Red did something on Thursday afternoon that they hadn’t done since 5/21/07 – they came all the way back from a 6-run deficit to win a ball game. 

Brandon Phillips led the comeback Reds, going 2-for-4 with a 3-run homer and a 2-run double.  He also scored twice.

Mike Leake started on the mound for the Reds and allowed 6 runs on 11 hits in 5.1 innings (1bb, 2k, 2hr).  Alfredo Simon pitched 1.2 scoreless innings of relief to get the win (1h).  Aroldis Chapman fired a perfect 9th for his 15th victory.

The Reds and Diamondbacks split the 4-game set.  The Brewers come to town Friday for a 3-game weekend series at Great American Ball Park.  Tickets are still available.

The Pirates were off today, so the Reds enjoy a first-place lead in the NL Central by a half a game.
