CINCINNATI (AP) — Sam Hilliard homered twice — his first homers since last April — and Kyle Freeland had a season-high nine strikeouts, and the Colorado Rockies held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-5.

Freeland (1-3) has given up two or fewer earned runs in four straight starts, allowing two runs and eight hits with one walk in 6 2/3 innings.

Hilliard hit a two-run home run in the third and a solo shot in the fifth for his third career multi-homer game, first since April 24, 2023, when he homered twice against Miami while with the Braves.

Jonathan India hit a solo homer for Colorado.

Reds starter Frankie Montas (4-7) gave up five earned runs and eight hits in seven innings.
