(Newser) – Pat Burrell hit two of Philadelphia's four homers off Bronson Arroyo, a power splurge that swept Philadelphia to a 5-3 victory Monday and a split of their four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds. Jimmy Rollins and Geoff Jenkins also homered off Arroyo (0-1), who had never before given up more than three in a game. 

Brad Lidge, who came off the disabled list Saturday after recovering from knee surgery, gave up a run in the ninth before closing it out for his first save. Left-hander Cole Hamels (1-0) overcame a maddening first, when the Reds scored both of their runs with the help of a walk and an error. Hamels gave up five hits and three walks in seven innings.
