Votto's late RBIs broke a 2--2 tie registering wins for Reds
Votto's sixth-inning RBI single broke a 2-2 tie and gave the Reds the lead for good en route to their second straight win over the Phillies after a 9-4 drubbing in the series opener on Thursday.
The loss spoiled the Phillies debut of Asdrubal Cabrera, acquired Friday from the New York Mets. Cabrera started at shortstop and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout.
After starting pitchers Matt Harvey of the Reds and Vince Velasquez of the Phillies exited a 2-2 tie after five innings, Cincinnati jumped on Philadelphia reliever Tommy Hunter (2-1) for two runs in the sixth.
Eugenio Suarez's infield out plated Gennett to make it 4-2.
Wandy Peralta (2-2), who entered the game in the sixth inning and got the first four outs in relief of Harvey, was credited with the win.
Hughes, who got the final five outs, got his seventh save.
After retiring the first nine batters he faced, Harvey limited the Phillies to two runs -- a two-run homer by Rhys Hoskins in the fourth -- and two hits in his five innings. He walked two and struck out five.
The Phillies were limited to four hits, including Hoskins' 21st homer of the season.
