Cincinnati hit three home runs in the sixth, including a two-run shot by Adam Duvall, Sal Romano threw seven strong innings and the Reds beat R.A. Dickey and the Atlanta Braves 5-3 on Friday night.
Matt Adams' homer in the second inning gave Atlanta a 1-0 lead that Dickey held until the four-run sixth. Duvall's homer drove in Joey Votto, who hit a leadoff single, to give the Reds the lead.
Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker added back-to-back homers with one out for Cincinnati's first three-homer inning of the season.
Romano (3-5) snapped a streak of three straight losses in August. The rookie right-hander was dominant after giving up a second-inning homer to Adams. He allowed one run and five hits in his longest of nine starts in the majors.
Tyler Flowers had a run-scoring double off Kevin Shackelford in Atlanta's two-run eighth. With Flowers on second base, Adams just missed another homer on a drive to right field that curved foul. Shackelford walked Adams before Blake Wood ended the inning on Ozzie Albies' fly ball to left field.
Dickey (8-8) allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings.
Billy Hamilton led off the seventh with a double to right off Rex Brothers and scored when Duvall hit into a bases-loaded double play.
Rasiel Iglesias pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 24 chances.
The Braves wore 1974 throwback uniforms to launch their Hank Aaron Heritage Weekend. The 83-year-old Aaron and his wife, Billye, took an open-convertible ride around the field in a pregame ceremony.
