July 7, 2007

Reds 8, Diamondbacks 1

Cincinnati - Ken Griffey Jr. tied Frank Robinson for sixth place on the home run list, and Kyle Lohse pitched a four-hitter as Cincinnati beat Arizona.

Griffey capped Cincinnati's three-run fifth inning with his 586th homer - 23rd of the season - a two-run shot off of right-hander Micah Owings that traveled 419 feet into the right-center field seats.

Adam Dunn and Brandon Phillips also homered as the Reds won back-to-back games for the first time since wins over the Cleveland Indians on June 10 and the Los Angeles Angels on June 12.

Lohse (5-10) had five strikeouts and two walks in his sixth career complete game, his second this season. He scattered six hits in a 4-0 win over Pittsburgh on May 28.

Arizona's only hit before the ninth was Orlando Hudson's double to lead off the fourth inning. He went to third on Chad Tracy's groundout to first before being stranded. Lohse allowed a run in the ninth on three singles and a double-play grounder by Tracy.

Owings (5-4) allowed six runs and six hits and three walks in 42â3 innings. He had four strikeouts.
