Willingham HR off Chapman in 9th, Twins top Reds

Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off shaky Cincinnati closer Aroldis Chapman, rallying the Minnesota Twins over the Reds 4-3 Sunday.

Joe Mauer opened the ninth with a double off the left-field wall against Chapman (4-4). Willingham followed with his 15th homer of the season, a 438-foot drive into the second level in left field.

In Chapman's previous outing, he gave up a game-ending, two-run homer to Asdrubal Cabrera in the 10th inning at Cleveland last Tuesday.

Willingham's homer overcame Joey Votto's eighth-inning, two-run homer that had given the Reds a 3-2 lead.
