CINCINNATI -- Scott Rolen tripled and scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning as the Cincinnati Reds won their fifth straight game, 5-4 over the Pittsburgh Pirateson Saturday night. 

The Reds have won 15 of 16 and opened a 5 1/2-game lead over Pittsburgh in the NL Central. 

It was 4-all when Rolen led off the eighth with a line drive off the right-center field wall, beating the relay with a headfirst slide into third base. Todd Frazier hit a chopper that was fielded by pitcher Jared Hughes(2-1) too late to get Rolen at the plate. 

Rolen earlier had a two-run single.

Jonathan Broxton (1-0), acquired on Tuesday from Kansas City, pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. Aroldis Chapmanworked the ninth for his 25th save. 

Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle was ejected in the top of the second after both benches were warned following the second Pirates batter to be hit by a pitch in two nights.
