Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill last week hit for his second cycle of the season against the Milwaukee Brewers.

He became the second major-league player since 1900 to accomplish  the feat twice in the same season.

Hill also singled, doubled, tripled and homered on June 18 against Seattle.

Brooklyn Dodgers player Babe Herman had two cycles in 1931, according to STATS LLC.

Friday night off Brewers starter Randy Wolf, Hill doubled in the first inning for his 1,000th MLB hit; singled in the third; hit a home run in the fourth, his 11th of the year, a two-run balst.

In the sixth inning, Hill completed the cycle with a triple off Livan Hernandez.

MLB UPDATE: Reds and Indians Sunday results

Atlanta at Cincinnati

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips made the most of very few scoring opportunities for the Reds on Sunday.

Phillips hit a tying triple with two-out in the fifth inning and scored the tie-breaking run on shortstop Alex Gonzalez’s error, helping Cincinnati win the rubber game of the weekend series over Atlanta, 2-1.

Ramon Hernandez was on first base when Phillips hit a high a fly ball down the right-field line that just eluded a diving Jason Heyward and bounded into the corner.

Orlando Cabrera followed with a routine grounder to Gonzalez, but the former Reds shortstop dropped the ball, allowing Phillips to score while Cabrera easily beat the throw to first base.

The NL East- leading Braves have lost three of four and went 3-6 on their 10-day road trip, winning one game in each city.

The Reds have won three of four and remained a half-game behind the St. Louis Cardinals who swept Pittsburgh with a 9-1 win on Sunday.

Edinson Volquez (2-1) was the winning pitcher. He was wild in five innings, walking five and hitting a batter but gave up just one run, three hits, struck out seven on 96 pitches in just his fourth start since undergoing elbow surgery last August.

The Reds bullpen was solid again with Jordan Smith, Bill Bray and Nick Masset each pitching one inning. Closer Francisco Cordero finished for his 29th save.

There were 40,871 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. The third sellout of the series, put the total at 122,855, the most for a three-game weekend series since the park opened in 2003.

Cleveland at Toronto

Asdrubal Cabrera belted a two-run homer, Jason Donald added a solo shot and the Indians beat the Blue Jays 5-4, their sixth win in seven games against Toronto.

Major League home run leader Jose Bautista (#32), Aaron Hill and Yunel Escobar all blasted solo homers for Toronto, but the Jays lost for the ninth time in 13 home games against the young Indians.

With all of the recent trades by Cleveland lately, Travis Hafner and Shelley Duncan are the only players over the age of 30 and Asdrubal Cabrera is 24. All three are considered leaders of the team.

For the second time in three weeks, right-hander Jeanmar Gomez (2-0) came through for Cleveland after being called up from Triple-A Columbus. Working on three days rest, Gomez threw 85 pitches, allowed two runs on five hits, walked two and struck out two.

Five Indians relievers preserved the win: Tony Sipp, Frank Hermann, Rafael Perez, Joe Smith and Chris Perez, the new closer, picked up his 12th save.

Toronto leads the majors in home runs with 161 and have hit one in 13 consecutive games, blasting 31 during that time frame.

Masterson, who is 3-7, blanked the Blue Jays until Jose Bautista led off the ninth with a double and Aaron Hill hit an RBI single with one out. Frank Herrmann came in with bases loaded and got Jose Molina to bounce into a double play for his first major league save.

Masterson gave up eight hits, walked none and struck out five.
