COPY-Votto's single rallies Reds over Angels 5-4

CINCINNATI (AP) - Brandon Phillips hit a three-run homer in his new role as Cincinnati's cleanup hitter, and Joey Votto drove in the winning run with a ninth-inning single Wednesday night, rallying the Reds to a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

They've split the first two games of the first interleague series to open a season.

Votto's first hit of the season off left-hander Scott Downs (0-1) deflected off the glove of first baseman Albert Pujols and rolled into the outfield, allowing Shin-Soo Choo to score from second base.

Phillips hit the Reds' first homer of the season off C.J. Wilson in the fourth inning, when Cincinnati sent nine batters to the plate for four runs.

Left-hander Aroldis Chapman (1-0) walked one in the ninth.
