WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) – Alfredo Simon settled down after a rough start and came back after a 61-minute rain delay to lead the Reds to a 2-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.

Simon won his sixth game, allowing one run over seven innings. He gave up a leadoff homer to Denard Span in the first, worked out of a jam in the second, then allowed only three more baserunners as the Reds finished a road trip by taking two of three from Washington.

Simon (6-2) threw two innings after the storm that interrupted the game for just over an hour. Jonathan Broxton handled the eighth, and Aroldis Chapman pitched a one-two-three ninth for his third save, hitting 103 mph on the stadium’s radar gun on a pitch while striking out Danny Espinosa.

Brandon Phillips and Brayan Pena had RBI singles in the fourth against Tanner Roark (3-2), who allowed six hits and two runs — one unearned — over six innings for the Nationals.

The Reds have placed first baseman Joey Votto on the 15-day disabled list with a left leg injury.

The team also reinstated outfielder Jay Bruce from the 15-day DL. He had arthroscopic surgery May 5 to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
