That included Jimmy Rollins, who broke a 0-for-20 skid with a double to lead off the sixth inning.
The Phillies got home runs from Ryan Howard, Erik Kratz, and John Mayberry Jr.
Howard has 13 RBIs in his last 12 games.
"With more at-bats I have been getting a little better rhythm," Howard said. "For me it has been a lot like spring training, trying to get used to being back in the situation, and I am just trying to let things flow."
Counting Monday's contest, the Phillies began a stretch of playing 13 of their next 16 games against playoff contenders. That includes seven games against these Reds, who are now 74-49.
The Phillies began the evening 11 games out of a wild-card spot, and even the biggest optimist would have trouble suggesting they could get back into the postseason picture. So it appears the best role will be spoiler.
While the offense prospered, righthander Roy Halladay struggled but persevered, allowing five earned runs in seven innings.
"He definitely did not have his good command, but he battled through," Manuel said.
Halladay is looking for more from himself now that he has made seven starts since coming off the disabled list from his shoulder injury on July 17.
"It's beyond mechanics," Halladay said. "I feel it is getting to where I judge myself on how I execute my pitches."
On this night, his effort was more than enough as the Phillies struck for seven runs in 41/3 innings against Reds starter Mike Leake.
Kratz was 1 for 14 on the recent seven-game road trip but went 2 for 2 with the home run, double, and walk.
"I had a few balls that didn't fall on the road trip, but that's hitting," Kratz said. "I need to try to continue to stay within myself and barrel the ball up."
Thirteen of his 18 hits have gone for extra bases, with six doubles and seven home runs.
In addition, Kratz has been solid defensively. He threw out two runners attempting to steal, and has now caught seven of 17 potential base stealers (41 percent).
The Phillies chased Leake in the fifth after Chase Utley's RBI double, Mayberry's RBI single, and a two-run double by Domonic Brown.
"We went up there and battled and [Leake] made a couple of mistakes and we didn't miss them," Mayberry said.
Juan Pierre went 3 for 4 with three runs scored. He also stole two bases, giving him 31 this season.
Now hitting .312, Pierre has recorded 30 or more stolen bases in a single season 11 times.
The Phillies were also able to get lefthander Antonio Bastardo into the game. He pitched two-thirds of an inning in his first appearance since Aug. 8.
Bastardo entered with one out in the eighth, and after serving a single to Jay Bruce, struck out Scott Rolen and Xavier Paul to end the inning.
The Phillies have now won seven in a row over Cincinnati dating back to last year and are 12-1 in their last 13 games against the Reds.
