PHOENIX, June 22 (UPI) -- Paul Goldschmidt hit two home runs during a 15-hit onslaught Friday that sent Arizona rolling over Cincinnati 11-5.

The Diamondbacks produced four runs in both the fifth and sixth innings to break open a tie game and win their third in a row. It was Arizona's 40th victory of the campaign.

Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer to snap a 3-3 tie in the fifth, Martin Prado had a sacrifice fly later in the inning and Jason Kubel came in with the final run of the frame on a wild pitch.

Goldschmidt's solo blast touched off Arizona's four-run sixth.

Arizona starter Wade Miley was unable to make it through the fifth. Instead, Will Harris (1-0) came on to record the final out in the fifth and that was enough to bring him the second victory of his career.

Harris has appeared in 35 games with three teams over the last two seasons.

Johnny Cueto (4-1) was roughed up for seven runs on 11 hits in 4 1/3 to take the loss.
