SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Zack Cozart drove in two runs with a tiebreaking single and the surging Cincinnati Reds scored five times with two outs in the 11th inning to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3 Saturday night.

Chris Heisey followed with a two-run triple and Billy Hamilton added an RBI double, all but sealing Cincinnati's fourth straight victory and eighth in 11 games.

Brandon Phillips hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth for the Reds before pinch-hitter Buster Posey tied it with an RBI double off hard-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom half.

San Francisco had a great chance to win, with runners at second and third and nobody out. Chapman, however, pitched out of the jam by getting two grounders and a strikeout.

The NL West-leading Giants have dropped three in a row and eight of 11.
