Votto homers three times, Desclafani strong as Reds beat Phillies

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

By: Seth Graham

The Reds (26-31) pummeled former Red, Aaron Harang (4-7), for an 11-2 victory over the Phillies (22-38) in a game that saw Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips leave early and Joey Votto hit three home runs.

Phillips appeared to hurt himself when he slid into third base in the bottom of the first inning. He ended up leaving the game in the top of the third.

Bruce left the game in a different fashion. In the bottom of the third, he was tossed for arguing with the umpire after he struck out. Bruce did not agree with the inside pitch that the ump called strike three.

This preceded back-to-back homers by Votto and Todd Frazier that would put the reds up 6-1 by the third inning.

Harang had only given up four home runs all year coming into tonight's game. The Reds doubled that total by hitting four home runs off him Tuesday.

The Reds got the offense going early, putting up four runs in the first inning.

Those four runs would be all that they needed, as Anthony DeSclafani (5-4) only gave up two runs and fanned seven in six innings of work.

Votto would end the game 3 for 4 with four RBIs and a walk. The first baseman joins Johnny Bench as the only Red to homer three times in games. Frazier finished 3 for 5 and an RBI of his own.
