May 15, 2012 at 12:04 AM

ATLANTA, May 15 (UPI) -- Brandon Phillips and Chris Heisey each supplied RBI doubles in the eighth inning Monday, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 verdict over Atlanta.

With the game tied 1-1 in the eighth, Drew Stubbs led off with a single and went to second on a wild pitch by Jonny Venters (2-2). One out later Phillips belted a pitch off the top of the left-field wall, easily scoring the go-ahead run.

Heisey later laced a pitch into the left-center field gap for an insurance tally, and the Reds went on to snap the Braves' three-game winning streak.

Lyle Ondrusek (3-0) earned the win in relief of Homer Bailey, who had limited Atlanta to one run on six hit over 6 2/3 innings.

Sean Marshall picked up his sixth save with two strikeouts in the ninth.

Braves starter Randall Delgado pitched well in a no-decision, surrendering one run on four hits over 6 2/3 frames.

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the loss.
