Tim Adleman tossed eight innings of one-hit ball, Adam Duvall and Scott Schebler homered and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 on Friday night.
Adleman (3-2) entered with a 6.19 ERA and hadn’t pitched more than seven innings in 19 career starts. But he looked like Greg Maddux against Philadelphia.
Andres Blanco’s first-inning single was all the struggling Phillies got off Adleman. He struck out four and walked two.
Philadelphia is 5-21 since an 11-9 start.
