Braves 7, Reds 4

CINCINNATI — Andrelton Simmons homered twice and drove in a career-high four runs on Monday night, leading the Braves to a 7-4 victory that ended the Reds' winning streak at three games.

Atlanta won at a place where it has had little success lately. The Braves were 0-4 at Great American Ball Park last year and 14-25 overall since it opened for the 2003 season.

Paul Maholm held down an offense that has been all-or-nothing for 52/3 innings. Cincinnati stranded five runners in scoring position overall.

Craig Kimbrel gave up two singles in the ninth before striking out Joey Votto, picking up his 10th save in 12 opportunities.

Atlanta scored in four of five innings against former Hernando High standout Bronson Arroyo, who had his shortest outing of the season.

Simmons had a solo shot and an RBI single off Arroyo. He added a two-run homer in the eighth off Logan Ondrusek, matching his career high for hits.
