LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) – Brandon Phillips hit a two-run homer against Clayton Kershaw and Homer Bailey pitched seven effective innings to lead the Reds to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.

Bailey (5-3) allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six.

Yasiel Puig, who has reached base safely in 29 straight games, led off the Dodgers’ sixth with an opposite-field homer to right-center that narrowed the gap to 3-2. But former Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton retired Puig and Hanley Ramirez on flyballs for the last two outs in the eighth after replacing Manny Parra with a runner at second, and Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his fifth save.

Kershaw (3-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings and struck out nine.
