(Philadelphia, PA) - Zack Cozart put Phillies closer Jonathan Paplebon’s first pitch into the left field seats as the Cincinnati Reds got past Philadelphia 5-4.
The game see-sawed back and forth with Jimmy Rollins tying the game in the seventh with a two-run double.
Todd Frazier hit a solo homer off Antonio Bastardo with two out in the eighth to put Cincinnati up 4-3, but Kevin Frandsen's RBI triple in the bottom of the frame tied it back up at 4-4.
Paplebon came on to pitch the ninth and made the mistake to Cozart on his first pitch.
Aroldis Chapman came on to pitch the ninth for the Reds, giving up a leadoff single before getting an out on a fielder's choice and striking out the final two batters to record his 30th save.
The Phillies had a three-game winning streak snapped.
