CINCINNATI, May 18 (UPI) -- Joey Votto and Adam Dunn homered Sunday to lead the Cincinnati Reds past the Cleveland Indians 6-4 for a three-game inter-league sweep.

Dunn -- who has homered in four straight games -- belted a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth inning one day after his game-winning three-run blast in the ninth Saturday gave Cincinnati a 4-2 victory. Votto launched a two-run pinch homer in the sixth.

Brandon Phillips had an RBI single in the fifth and an RBI ground-out in the first. Paul Janish had three hits and Dunn two in the Reds' sixth straight win.

Cleveland got one RBI each from four players, including Michael Aubrey, who hit a solo homer in the sixth.

Winner Edinson Volquez (7-1) yielded two earned runs and four hits in six innings with four walks and five strikeouts.

Losing pitcher Cliff Lee (6-1) surrendered six runs -- five earned -- and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings.
