CINCINNATI (AP) — TJ Friedl hit a three-run homer on a four-hit night, rookie Elly De La Cruz added a solo shot and the Cincinnati Reds extended their winning streak to 10 games with an 8-6 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Will Benson had a solo homer in the sixth, helping the NL Central-leading Reds to their longest winning streak since 2012, when they also won 10 straight.

De La Cruz had three hits as fans chanted "Elly! Elly!"

Jorge Alfaro's three-run homer in the eighth, which bounced off the top of fence in center, couldn't keep the Rockies from their seventh straight loss.

Alex Young (2-0), the second of six Cincinnati pitchers, was the winner.

Alexis Díaz got his 20th save.
