ATLANTA (AP) -- Bronson Arroyo pitched seven sparkling innings, Brandon Phillips hit a two-run single in Cincinnati's three-run first and the Reds beat the depleted Atlanta Braves 4-2 on Friday night.

Arroyo (8-7) allowed three hits, including Brian McCann's two-out solo homer in the seventh, and walked one. Sam LeCure pitched a perfect eighth and Aroldis Chapman gave up a run in the ninth before earning his 21st save.

Braves outfielders B.J. Upton and Justin Upton left the game with injuries. Jason Heyward was held out one day after he strained his right hamstring.

B.J. Upton strained his right adductor muscle in the first inning. Justin Upton strained his left calf while running to first base in the seventh.
