MLB: Philadelphia 5, Cincinnati 3

May 17, 2013 at 10:52 PM

PHILADELPHIA, May 17 (UPI) -- Michael Young raced home on a fielding error to give Philadelphia the lead in the eighth inning Friday and the Phillies held on to down Cincinnati 5-3.

Philadelphia let an early three-run lead slip away, but benefited from a Cincinnati miscue to end the Reds' six-game winning streak.

Jimmy Rollins staked the Phillies to a lead with his two-run homer in the third and Young tripled in starting pitcher Cliff Lee.

The Reds then rallied on a two-run blast by Jay Bruce in the sixth and a solo shot from Joey Votto in the eighth.

Young reached on a one-out walk from Sean Marshall (0-1) in the bottom of the eighth, moved to second on an infield hit by Ryan Howard and advanced to third when Delmon Young was hit by a pitch.

Domonic Brown followed by hitting a grounder to second baseman Brandon Phillips, who booted the ball while Young was scoring the go-ahead run. Carlos Ruiz delivered a sacrifice fly later in the inning.

Justin De Fratus (2-0) retired the final two men in the top of the eighth to get the victory in relief. Jonathan Papelbon survived a leadoff walk in the ninth to collect his eighth save.
