CINCINNATI (AP) -- Drew Stubbs homered and Cincinnati's deep bullpen held off the Arizona Diamondbacks with the help of a homer-saving catch by right fielder Jay Bruce as the Reds moved one step closer to the National League Central title with a 7-5 win Wednesday night.

Orlando Cabrera had three doubles -- giving him five in his last three games -- and scored three runs, and five relievers teamed up to pitch six innings of two-run relief in support of starter Homer Bailey.

He left the game after three innings because of dizziness.

Left-hander Bill Bray pitched a perfect fourth and fellow lefty Matt Maloney (1-2) retired the first seven batters he faced before giving up Kelly Johnson's 21st homer with one out and nobody on in the seventh.
