PHOENIX (AP) - Bronson Arroyo pitched six strong innings and homered in the sixth inning for the go-ahead run of the Cincinnati Reds' 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night.

Brandon Phillips added an RBI double for the Reds, who remained six games ahead of St. Louis in the NL Central and gave manager Dusty Baker his 400th win with the club.

Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 32nd save.

Justin Upton drove in both runs for the Diamondbacks, who have lost four straight and six of eight during their 10-game homestand.

Arroyo (11-7) allowed two runs and five hits for his fourth straight win.

Skaggs (1-1), making his second career start, gave up three runs and five hits over 5 2-3 innings.
