CINCINNATI -

Brandon Phillips homered and made a spectacular rally-busting play -- using his left knee to get a forceout and start a double play -- as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 on Friday night.

Phillips had an RBI single off Yovani Gallardo (3-2) and added a solo homer in the seventh after making a saving play in the top of the inning.

With two Brewers aboard, he got to Ryan Braun's grounder up the middle, tagged second base with his left knee while falling down and threw to first for a double play.

Milwaukee got solo homers from Jean Segura and Braun, but lost for the seventh time in eight games.

Alfredo Simon (3-1) threw two innings in relief of rookie left-hander Tony Cingrani.
