Reds 5, Giants 2
Aaron Harang notched his first victory since May 25. (Ben Margot/AP)
Aaron Harang hadn't posted a victory over his previous 13 starts, but a solid seven innings vs. the Giants and help from his offense ended his winless streak. Brandon Phillips and Adam Rosales belted homers in support, with Rosales notching three hits in place of the injured Scott Rolen.
