Worley wins again, Phils sweep Reds
Cincinnati, OH – Ryan Howard and Michael Martinez homered to game sweep of the Reds with a 6-4 victory.
Philadelphia hadn't swept a four-game series in Cincinnati since 1916, and completed the feat Thursday thanks to Worley (10-1), who limited the Reds to four runs in six-plus innings.
The Phillies have won his last 13 starts, the longest stretch for the team this season. The rookie right-hander hasn't lost since May 29.
Worley allowed a three-run homer to Chris Heisey before being pulled, but by that point Philadelphia had built a 6-1 lead, thanks to the Howard and Martinez homers.
Reds starter Mike Leake (11-9) also gave up four runs in six innings, but took the loss.
