Orioles use 3 homers to down Reds 7-5

Derrek Lee and Mark Reynolds homered in a four-run fourth inning, Luke Scott added a solo shot in the seventh and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Cincinnati Reds 7-5 Sunday. Baltimore totaled nine home runs in taking two of three from the sputtering Reds.

The team combined for 16 homers in the series, including 14 in the last two games. Brandon Phillips and Ramon Hernandez connected for Cincinnati, which fell to 3-9 in interleague play.

The Reds stranded 14 and went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position.

Baltimore went up 5-0 in the fourth when Lee hit a three-run drive and Reynolds sent a 1-2 pitch from Homer Bailey into the bullpen area in center field, an estimated 443 feet from home plate.
