CINCINNATI, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Bronson Arroyo racked up his fifth consecutive decision Saturday, stifling Houston for seven innings in Cincinnati's 5-1 victory over the Astros.

Arroyo (12-7), who hasn't lost since Aug. 6, yielded only one run on seven hits, walking two and striking out five.

The right-hander placed 67 of his 98 pitches for strikes as the National League Central-leading Reds evened their three-game series.

Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips each knocked a solo homer to spark Cincinnati's offense.

Houston's Bud Norris (5-12) was touched for five runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Justin Maxwell knocked in the Astros' only run.
