CINCINNATI (AP) - Todd Frazier homered and drove in four runs Monday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds out of their offensive slump to an 8-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants in a game shortened to six innings because of rain.

Frazier had an RBI single and a three-run homer off left-hander Mike Kickham (0-3), who has been hit hard in each of his three major league starts.

Zack Cozart added a sacrifice fly and a run-scoring double as the Reds piled up their most runs since a 12-2 win at Wrigley Field on June 11.

Bronson Arroyo (7-6) gave up a pair of hits in six innings, including Brandon Belt's homer.

Rain halted the game after the sixth. The umpires waited 1 hour, 28 minutes before calling it.
