Posted: Updated:

 

PHOENIX (AP) - Jason Kubel hit a two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning to rally the Arizona Diamondbacks past Aroldis Chapman and the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Saturday night for their fourth straight victory.

Jay Bruce's second home run of the game gave the Reds a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth.
Paul Goldschmidt singled past Joey Votto at first base leading off the bottom half before Chapman (3-3) issued consecutive walks to Miguel Montero and Cody Ross. With the infield drawn in, Kubel singled over second base for his third career game-ending hit.

Brad Ziegler (4-1) replaced Heath Bell after Bruce's home run and earned the win.
