MLB: Cincinnati 3, Arizona 2

PHOENIX, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Bronson Arroyo tossed six strong innings and helped himself by socking a go-ahead homer Monday in the Cincinnati Reds' 3-2 win over Arizona.

Arroyo (11-7) won for the sixth time in seven starts, holding the Diamondbacks to two runs on five hits over six innings. The right-hander walked one and struck out three.

With the game tied 2-2 in the sixth, the Reds pitcher lofted a 3-2 pitch from Tyler Skaggs (1-1) into the left field corner that bounced off the top of the wall.

The clout was initially ruled a double, but after a video review, the umpires reversed the decision and called it a home run -- the sixth of Arroyo's career.

Sean Marshall and Jonathan Broxton each tossed a scoreless relief frame and Aroldis Chapman recorded his 32nd save for National League Central-leading Cincinnati, which took the opener of a three-game set.

Skaggs, making his second major-league start, yielded three runs (two earned) on five hits in a 5 2/3-inning effort.

Justin Upton belted a solo homer and added a run-scoring single for Arizona.
