The Phillies might have lost a tough game to the Reds after getting great starting pitching from Cliff Lee but the biggest story from this Reds vs Phillies game was the catch by Ben Revere. In the bottom of the 2nd inning with a man on 1st and no outs, Todd Frazier hit a bullet to dead center, and Revere ran it down and made an unbelievable full extension diving catch towards the warning track. Then he double off Jay Bruce on 1st who was running the bases thinking it was a hit. It honestly could be the best catch I've ever seen. If you missed it, check it out here.Reds 4 Phillies 2Bronson Arroyo took a shutout into the 8th inning before he gave up a game tying 2-run shot off the bat of Chase Utley. He finished the 8th and got the win after Brandon Phillips had a 2-run single with the bases loaded.Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect 9th inning with 2 strike outs to pick up the save, his 3rd of the year.Cincinnati's bats were quiet until the 7th inning when they scored 2 runs to break a scoreless tie. Joey Votto singled to lead off the inning then it was second and third no outs after Brandon Phillips double. Votto scored on a Cliff Lee wild pitch and Phillips scored on a sac fly off the bat of Todd Frazier.Phillips finished the night going 2-4 with a run scored and 2 RBI.Cliff Lee did not get a decision but he pitched well in this game.
