Regarding the home run, Brown said, "I was just trying to do what I could for the team."
Not a bad attitude.
"He swung the bat good tonight," manager Charlie Manuel said.
As for Worley, he exited after six innings, allowing two earned runs on eight hits while walking two and striking out two. He threw 99 pitches. By comparison, Arroyo had thrown 59 pitches through six innings.
In his previous three starts, Worley had not been able to pitch six full innings, throwing a total of 132/3 innings, so this was at least progress.
"I kept the team in it and [the Reds] did not really hit the ball hard, so I can say I did my job," Worley said.
The Phillies were again plagued by a lack of patience at the plate.
"Some of our veterans work the count better than others and tonight we didn't do a good job," Manuel said.
Brown ended the second inning with a sensational diving catch to his right about 10 feet from the warning track on what looked like a sure hit by Arroyo.
In the Reds' fourth inning, Jay Bruce hit a one-out high fly to deep right. Brown lost the ball in the lights and what should have been a routine out ended up a triple.
Brown later redeemed himself by easily gunning down Bruce at the plate on Todd Frazier's fly ball.
Cincinnati opened the scoring in the fifth when the No. 8 hitter, Ryan Hanigan, walked, advanced to second on Arroyo's sacrifice and scored on Drew Stubbs' two-out bloop single to right. After Brandon Phillips singled, Ryan Ludwick delivered an RBI single to right.
Brown broke up Arroyo's no-hit bit with a solo home run to right with two outs in the fifth inning.
Arroyo has never been overpowering, but he is known as an innings-eater. He pitched 200 or more innings in six consecutive years until last season - when he totaled 199.
Bruce extended the lead to 3-1 with a towering solo home run to right off reliever Josh Lindblom in the eighth. It was his 26th homer of the season.
The Phillies threatened in the eighth, when Brown hit a one-out double that almost left the park. Placido Polanco reached base on an error by former Phillie Scott Rolen, but Brown was not able to advance.
Then Brian Schneider hit a grounder up the middle that shortstop Zack Cozart grabbed and flipped to Phillips. One of the top defensive second basemen, Phillips then made a difficult long throw that nailed the less-than-fleet Schneider for the inning-ending double play.
Pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen opened the ninth with an infield single to third. That ended Arroyo's evening and in came Chapman.
Frandsen advanced to second on a one-out wild pitch and scored the second run on Ty Wigginton's broken-bat single to right.
Chase Utley popped to center for the second out.
Ryan Howard then hit a sharp liner to left for the final out.
