Phillies Vs. Reds Final Score: Jay Bruce's Two-Run Shot Downs Philadelphia, 2-1

The Philadelphia Phillies' Kyle Kendrick and the Cincinnati Reds' Mat Latos matched zeroes much of the night, but it was Reds outfielder Jay Bruce who was the difference maker, connecting on a two-run homer to give the Reds a hard-fought 2-1 victory on Tuesday.

Latos gave up just one run through seven innings and Kendrick surrendered just two in six innings pitched at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.

The Phillies scratched across their first and only run on a Domonic Brown bases loaded walk in the fourth inning. That was all the scoring the game featured until Bruce drove Ryan Ludwick home with a two-run shot to right field in the sixth inning.

Bruce's blast was all the Reds needed, as Jonathan Broxton and Aroldis Chapman combined to shut out the Phillies in the eighth and ninth frames.
