Joey Votto walked and Phillips singled to lead off the frame against Cubs starter Travis Wood, and one out later Todd Frazier's ground single up the middle provided the equalizer, sending Phillips to third.

Then with Robinson batting, Phillips took off for home and Robinson laid down a sacrifice bunt to the right of the mound, putting Cincinnati ahead to stay.

Ryan Hanigan and Cesar Izturis each added an RBI to complete the rally, which gave the Reds their fifth straight win and 13th in 16 contests.

Homer Bailey (3-3) earned the decision, yielding two runs on five hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out eight.

Wood (4-3) ended up allowing five runs on seven hits in a 5 2/3-inning performance.

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-3 with an RBI for Chicago.
