Reds hit 3 solo homers to beat Rox 3-2

CINCINNATI (AP) - Joey Votto hit the last of Cincinnati's three solo homers, spoiling Kevin Millwood's return to the majors, and the Reds turned a season-high four double plays Wednesday night, holding on for a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

Votto's leadoff homer in the sixth inning snapped a 2-all tie and put the Reds in position for only their second win in their last seven games. Edgar Renteria and Jay Bruce also homered off the 36-year-old Millwood, who signed a contract before the game.

Mike Leake (10-7) gave up 11 hits in 7 1-3 innings, including Troy Tulowitzki's solo homer, but managed to become the Reds' first 10-game winner.
