CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Phillies jumped to an early 1 - 0 lead in game three of the National League Division Series.  Placid Polanco was able to score on a throwing error by Orlando Cabrera. 

It was all the Phillies needed to sweep the Reds to go onto National League Championship Game.

The Reds went scoreless in 9 innings.

The Reds threatened with double in the bottom of the 7th by Hernandez but Jay Bruce flew out to right field to end the inning.  Brandon Phillips singled in the bottom of the 9th as the Reds attempted to rally but Joey Votto hit into a double play.

Jonny Cueto was pulled in the bottom of 5th after throwing 83 pitches.  In his five innings there were two runs, one unearned.  Homer Bailey was sent in as relief at the top of the 6th. Bill Bray started the 8th inning and struck out the only batter he faced.  Nick Masset was the 4th Reds pitcher of the evening who retired the final two hitters.  Aroldis Chapman took the mound in the 9th inning. 

Carlos Ruiz was able to hit 105 mile per hour fastball off Chapman up the right field line for a double.  The speed was measured by the Cincinnati scoreboard.

Bailey gave up one hit in the sixth to Jimmy Rollins.  And Ruiz reached base on an error after Scott Rolen bobbled a fast grounder.   Hamel then flew out to Jay Bruce to end the inning.

Shane Victorino led off the top of the 7th with a base hit off Bailey but was thrown out as part of a 6 - 4 - 3 double play.

Scott Rolen had his first post season hit in the bottom of the fourth with a base hit up the middle.  He was thrown out at second for the 3rd out of the inning.

In the third Ryan Howard reached first with an infield single to third base.
