PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- John Mayberry Jr. hit a two-run homer and Ryan Howard and Erik Kratz had solo shots to back Roy Halladay, helping the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Cincinnati Reds 12-5 on Monday night.
Halladay (7-7) wasn't sharp, allowing five runs and 10 hits in seven innings. But the offense bailed out the two-time Cy Young Award winner.
Domonic Brown hit a go-ahead two-run double off Mike Leake (5-8) in a four-run fifth. Mayberry had three hits and three RBIs, Chase Utley, Howard and Kratz each drove in two and Juan Pierre had three hits and three runs.
The Phillies have won seven straight over the Reds and 12 of 13, dating to 2010. This was their first meeting this season.
The NL-Central leading Reds lost for just the third time in 11 games.
The five-time defending NL East champions have won three straight, but are eight games under .500.
After the Reds took a 5-4 lead in the fifth, the Phillies answered in the bottom half.
