Frazier's homer lifts Reds over Nats in 15

WASHINGTON — Todd Frazier's two-run homer in the 15th inning lifted the Cincinnati Reds over the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Monday night.

Brandon Phillips singled off Ross Detwiler (0-2) to open the inning and with one out, Frazier homered to center. The home run also ended a 27 2-3 innings scoreless streak by the Nationals' bullpen.

Logan Ondrusek (1-2) worked two innings for the win, allowing an RBI single to Greg Dobbs in the bottom of the 15th before getting Danny Espinosa to fly out to deep right to end the 4-hour, 58-minute game.

The Reds' defense twice extended the game with two-out diving catches that prevented the winning run from scoring.

Phillips robbed Wilson Ramos behind second base with a runner on third to end the 11th. Billy Hamilton's diving grab in right center of Anthony Rendon's liner sent the game to the 15th.
