Brandon Phillips felt Cincinnati's fans were a bit premature in their booing, so he took it upon himself to turn the jeers into cheers.
The second baseman homered and had a season-high five RBIs, then scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Todd Frazier's single to help the Reds rally from a six-run deficit in a 7-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday.
''If you're going to boo, wait until the game's over,'' said Phillips, who Cincinnati to its first win after trailing by as many as six runs since wiping out a 6-0 deficit to beat Washington 8-7 on May 21, 2007. ''We feed off the fans.''
Arizona led 6-3 with one out in the seventh when reliever Bryan Shaw (1-4) walked pinch-hitter Xavier Paul and leadoff batter Drew Stubbs. Wilson Valdez's grounder skipped under the glove of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt for a run-scoring error, setting up Phillips' tying two-run double to left-center field.
