Chase Utley hit a three-run homer and Shane Victorino and Greg Dobbs each had two-run shots during a 10-run first inning, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 22-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Cole Hamels (5-5) was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst. The struggling ace allowed one run and three hits in seven innings to earn his first win since shutting out the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 4.

The Phillies tied a club record for most runs in the first inning. They scored 10 three other times, most recently on June 2, 2002, against the Montreal Expos.

It was the most runs by Philadelphia since a 26-7 win over the New York Mets at the old Veterans Stadium on June 11, 1985.
