PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Cody Asche, Jimmy Rollins, Wil Nieves and Marlon Byrd all homered, and the Phillies beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-3 on Sunday.

Cliff Lee (4-4) struck out three in 6 2-3 innings for his first home victory of the season.

Cincinnati's Devin Mesoraco had a career-high four hits, including two doubles and an RBI. The Reds again played without the injured Joey Votto, who remained in Cincinnati during the three-game series with a strained quad.

Philadelphia's offense came to life for a second straight day. Despite playing in hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies entered Sunday second to last in the NL in home runs with 27.
