CINCINNATI (AP) -

Left-hander Cole Hamels pitched into the eighth inning as he stayed unbeaten against Cincinnati, and Jimmy Rollins moved closer to the Phillies' hit record with a solo homer, leading Philadelphia to an 8-0 victory Friday night.

The Phillies ended their longest losing streak of the season at six games. Cincinnati dropped its third straight.

Hamels (2-3) improved to 10-0 in 13 career appearances against the Reds, holding them to three runs or less each time. The Phillies have won all of his 13 starts against Cincinnati, including his five-hit shutout during the 2010 playoffs.

The left-hander allowed five hits and struck out seven in 7 2-3 innings, throwing 125 pitches.

Rollins hit his seventh homer off Johnny Cueto (5-5), who lasted only five innings for his shortest start of the season. The solo homer left Rollins six hits shy of the club record.
