Reds finally get to Hamels, drop Phils, 6-4

CINCINNATI (AP) – Ivan De Jesus Jr. hit the first homer of his big league career, the Cincinnati Reds finally beat Cole Hamels with the help of a couple of Phillies misplays that set up a 6-4 victory over Philadelphia on Monday night.

De Jesus hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the sixth inning off Hamels (5-5), who was unbeaten in 14 career starts against Cincinnati, including the playoffs.

Mike Leake (3-4) got his first win since May 6. He gave up three runs and 10 hits in six innings, including three hits by Maikel Franco. Aroldis Chapman walked two and let in a run on a wild pitch while getting his 11th save in 12 chances.

Heading into the game, Hamels was 10-0 with 1.45 ERA against the Reds, including a shutout during the 2010 playoffs. The Phillies had won all 14 games.
