Jeff Locke (1-1) overcame wildness to record the victory. He issued four walks and failed to record a strikeout but yielded only a pair of hits over five innings.

Justin Wilson, Jared Hughes and Mark Melancon combined for three innings of shutout relief and Jason Grilli pitched the ninth for his fifth save.

Cincinnati's Alfredo Simon (0-1) took the loss in relief of starter Johnny Cueto, who allowed one run over 4 1/3 innings.

Zack Cozart homered as the Reds dropped a fourth straight.
