  Final: Phillies 2, Reds 4. WP: Bronson Arroyo (2-1, 4.05 ERA) LP: Jeremy Horst (0-1, 9.53 ERA) SV: Aroldis Chapman (3) Tonight's game remained scoreless up until the bottom of the seventh inning.  Prior to that, the only real threat of offense from either club came in the bottom of the second inning with Jay Bruce on first base for the Cincinatti Reds.  Todd Frazier made great contact off of Phils' starter Cliff Lee, sending a ball to the deep right-center field alley.  Ben Revere somehow, someway tracked down the ball with his body fully extended and recorded the out.  He then doubled-off Bruce at first-base to complete the double-play. Lee was crusing in his first six innings of work, but struggled greatly in the latter-half of the seventh inning.  He allowed runners to be on second and third base with nobody out, and then subsequently threw a ball in the dirt to allow the Reds' Joey Votto to score on the play for the first run of the game.  After Bruce walked, Lee's first walk allowed since September of 2012, he allowed Todd Frazier to hit a sacrifice fly to extend Cincinnati's lead to 2-0. Chase Utley pinch-hit for Lee in the top of the eighth inning and came through big with a game-tying, pinch-hit, two-run home run off of opposing starter Bronson Arroyo. Cliff went seven innings tonight, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk.  He received the no-decision, as Utley's 411-foot home run allowed him to remain undefeated after his first three starts of the season. Utley now has five career pinch-hit home runs.  His last came off of LaTroy Hawkins on June 1, 2005. Jeremy Horst came into the game in the bottom of the eighth inning and to put in nicest terms, struggled greatly allowing two earned runs to come home on his line.  Those would be the go-ahead and winning runs for the Reds, as Aroldis Chapman shut the door in the top of the ninth inning to end the game.
