Rookie, Iglesias Pitches Gem for Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) - Reds rookie Raisel Iglesias pitched eight innings of two-hit baseball in his second career start and Todd Frazier connected for his 12th home run of the season, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-1 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

Marlon Byrd added a solo homer, his seventh of the season and fifth in his last 10 games. The Reds won the rubber match of the three-game series and seven-game season series between the teams.

The Braves have lost five of their last six.

Iglesias (1-0), a Cuba native, was recalled from Triple-A Louisville before the game. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Pinch-hitter Eric Young Jr. broke it up with a leadoff bloop single to shallow center field.
