Simmons homers twice, Braves beat Reds 7-4

CINCINNATI (AP) - Andrelton Simmons homered twice and drove in a career-high four runs on Monday night, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 7-4 victory that ended the Cincinnati Reds' winning streak at three games.

The Braves won at a place where they've had little success lately. They were 0-4 at Great American Ball Park last season and 14-25 overall since it opened for the 2003 season.

Paul Maholm (4-3) held down an offense that's been all-or-nothing. The left-hander allowed four hits and two runs in 5 2-3 innings. Craig Kimbrel gave up a pair of hits in the ninth while getting his 10th save in 12 opportunities.

Atlanta scored in 4 of 5 innings against Bronson Arroyo (2-4), who gave up four runs in his shortest outing of the season.
