Phillips' 2-run HR lifts Reds over Cardinals 6-5

CINCINNATI (AP) - Brandon Phillips hit a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth inning off Fernando Salas on Friday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in another wild finish to the NL Central's nastiest rivalry.

Phillips connected on the second pitch from Salas (5-3) for his second career game-ending homer, stopping to wave his arms in joy before reaching first base. Phillips injected much of the ill-will in the rivalry last season, when he called the Cardinals whiners and sparked a brawl.

St. Louis went up 5-4 in the eighth on Albert Pujols' two-run homer off hard-throwing Aroldis Chapman. The Cardinals' dependable closer couldn't hold on, blowing a save for the third time in 19 chances.
