Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Todd Frazier's solo home run to right field with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning sent Cincinnati to a 2-1 win over Atlanta in the third contest of a four-game series.

Facing Cristhian Martinez (2-1), Frazier drove an 0-1 pitch barely over the wall for his fourth homer of the year, giving the Reds their fifth walk-off win of the season.

Jay Bruce drove in the other run for Cincinnati, which won its season-high fifth straight contest.

Bronson Arroyo, who was making the 300th start of his major league career, allowed four hits, walked two and had seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in the start for the Reds. Ardolis Chapman (4-0) fanned a pair of batters in the ninth to get the win.

Tommy Hanson threw six frames, yielding four hits and a run while fanning five for Atlanta.

Dan Uggla homered in the fourth inning for the Braves.
