Reds lose close one to Philly

Tyler Goeddel threw out Eugenio Suarez with catcher Cameron Rupp holding onto the ball following a violent collision to end the game and the Philadelphia Phillies held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 on Saturday night.

Aaron Nola (3-2) tied a career high with nine strikeouts in seven stingy innings, Odubel Herrera hit a solo homer and David Hernandez pitched out of a jam for his first save since July 12, 2013, for Arizona against Milwaukee.

Jay Bruce walked to start the ninth, Suarez hit a single and Adam Duvall followed with a double to cut it to 4-3. After Tucker Barnhart grounded out, pinch-hitter Jordan Pacheco hit a fly ball to left. Goeddel made a perfect, no-hop throw to Rupp, who held on despite Suarez crashing into him.

Cincinnati's Tim Adleman (1-1) allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings.
