CINCINNATI (AP) -- Joey Votto hit three homers in a game for the third time in his career - matching Johnny Bench as the only Reds players to do it - and Cincinnati piled up five total on Tuesday night in a 11-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Votto hit two of the Reds' four homers off Aaron Harang (4-7), who had given up a total of four all season. Votto added a two-run homer in the seventh inning off Dustin McGowan, then grounded out in the eighth, finishing one shy of the major league record.

Anthony DeSclafani (5-4) matched his career high by fanning seven batters and gave up two runs in 6 1/3 innings to a lineup that struggles away from Citizens Bank Park.
