CINCINNATI (AP) -- Brandon Phillips drove in four runs with a home run and a triple during Cincinnati's 10-run sixth inning and the Reds came back from a five-run deficit to snap a nine-game losing streak with a 12-5 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
In the makeup of a game postponed on June 18 by rain, former Detroit shortstop Eugenio Suarez homered and doubled during Cincinnati's biggest inning since scoring 10 runs against Arizona in August 2005. Fourteen Reds batted in the inning against four Detroit pitchers, including reliever Al Alburquerque (3-1), who allowed three runs while not retiring any of the three batters he faced.
Skip Schumaker gave the Reds a 6-5 lead with a two-run single.
Collin Balester (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to set the stage for Cincinnati's biggest comeback of the season and earn his first major league win since 2012, when he was with Detroit.
