SAN FRANCISCO -- Brandon Phillips' leadoff homer in the seventh inning of Cincinnati's 3-1 victory over San Francisco on Thursday gave him his 700th RBI as a member of the Reds -- the 12th player in team history to reach that mark.
Phillips has been a National League All-Star for three of the past four seasons and was a first-time starter last year. But in voting results released on Monday, he had dropped from fourth to fifth in balloting and needs a boost from fans if he wants a trip to Minneapolis.
