Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer in Cincinnati's four-run third inning, Shin-Soo Choo also homered, and the Reds beat Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves 8-4 on Sunday.

Bruce led the Reds with three hits. Brandon Phillips had a two-run double in the ninth, and Choo had two hits and scored three runs as the Reds split the four-game series.

Reds right-hander Logan Ondrusek (3-0) threw two scoreless innings as the second reliever behind Tony Cingrani, who lasted only four innings.

Teheran (7-5) allowed five runs, seven hits and two walks in 5 1-3 innings.

Andrelton Simmons and Dan Uggla hit homers for Atlanta.

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was held out because of a jammed left thumb that will prevent him from playing in the All-Star game on Tuesday.

Atlanta catcher Brian McCann was named to replace him on the NL All-Star team.
