Phillies Vs. Reds: Philadelphia Concludes Series With 6-2 Victory

The Philadelphia Phillies concluded a three-game set against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday afternoon with a 6-2 victory. The Phillies managed to take two of the three meetings, which marks the second straight series that the club has won.

Philadelphia put the game out of reach early thanks to a four-run second inning, which was boosted by a three-run home run from catcher Eric Kratz and an RBI single by John Mayberry. In the third inning, the lead was aided once again by the long ball when Chase Utley hit a two-run home run.

Starting pitcher Roy Halladay carried the cushioned lead through 7.1 impressive innings that saw the right-hander allow one earned run on eight hits in addition to recording five strikeouts.

Mike Leake was pegged with the loss as he allowed six earned runs on six hits in 2.1 innings of work.
