CINCINNATI (AP) - Ryan Doumit and Ben Revere each had four hits Friday night, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 5-4 victory that gave the Cincinnati Reds their season-high fourth straight loss.

Doumit hit a solo shot off Homer Bailey (5-5), who angrily left the field after failing to get through the sixth inning. Revere broke an 0-for-15 slump with four singles.

Chris Heisey and Scott Rolen had two-run homers off Nick Blackburn (4-4), who lasted only five innings. Glen Perkins escaped a threat in the ninth for his second save in place of Matt Capps, out with a sore shoulder.

Plate umpire Jerry Layne left in the fourth inning after the barrel of a broken bat hit him on the left side of the head, going to a hospital for tests.
