PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Zack Cozart hit a tiebreaking homer on Jonathan Papelbon's first pitch in the ninth and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Phillies 5-4 Tuesday night to snap a seven-game losing streak against Philadelphia.

Kevin Frandsen hit a tying RBI triple off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth, but the NL Central-leading Reds went up to stay on Cozart's shot off Papelbon (3-5).

Cliff Lee took a shutout into the seventh before allowing three runs to remain winless at home this season.

The Reds took a 4-3 lead when Todd Frazier connected off Antonio Bastardo with two outs in the eighth for his 18th homer. The Phillies answered off Broxton (2-1). Domonic Brown hit a two-out single, and Frandsen tripled down the right-field line.

Aroldis Chapman finished for his 30th save in 34 tries.
