PHILADELPHIA — Shane Victorino's run-scoring single with two outs in the ninth inning lifted the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds, 3-2, on Wednesday night.

Jayson Werth hit a homer for the National League East-leading Phillies, who are 5-1 since losing 14 of 18.

Reliever Ryan Madson (3-4) tossed two scoreless innings to earn the win in his longest outing this season. The pitching-starved Phillies may have lost another starter because Rodrigo Lopez left with right shoulder inflammation after five solid innings.

The Phillies beat the Reds, 22-1, on Monday, but they have managed only six runs since handing Cincinnati the most lopsided loss in franchise history.
