PHOENIX (AP) - Chris Heisey hit two of Cincinnati's four home runs, including the tying two-run shot in the seventh inning, to rally the Reds to a 6-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Dioner Navarro's solo shot two batters after Heisey's first blast put Cincinnati ahead, Brandon Phillips added a two-run homer in the eighth and Heisey capped the scoring two outs later.

The NL Central-leading Reds swept the three-game series and sent the reeling Diamondbacks to their sixth straight home loss.

Reds starter Matt Latos (11-4) pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts and three walks.

Patrick Corbin (5-6) took a shutout into the seventh while limiting Cincinnati to two hits. However, he gave up a one-out double to Todd Frazier, the two home runs, and a single to Latos before being replaced.
