PHILADELPHIA, May 12 (UPI) -- Adam Dunn had two home runs and five RBI Thursday night as Philadelphia fought off Cincinnati, 7-5.

Ken Griffey Jr. scored three times, one of them coming on a homer, helping the Reds win for only the fifth time in 20 outings.

Ramon Ortiz (1-1) collected the victory even though he surrendered four runs on 10 hits in just five innings. Danny Graves picked up the save despite putting two runners on in the ninth.

Bobby Abreu homered for Philadelphia, the fifth straight game he has done so. That ties a club record first set by Dick Allen in 1969 and equaled by Mike Schmidt in 1979.
