Reds hold off Padres 7-6

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ryan Ludwick drove in four runs with a homer and a single Tuesday night, and Brandon Phillips hit a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning that got the Cincinnati Reds back to winning with a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres.

The NL Central leaders blew a six-run lead before rallying for their 18th victory in 21 games. A loss to the Padres in the series opener snapped a 10-game winning streak on Monday.

Phillips homered on the 110th and final pitch by Jason Marquis (4-6), who had won his last three starts.

Sean Marshall (4-3) got the win with two perfect innings. Left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth - only one strikeout this time - for his 14th straight save and his 22nd in 26 chances.
