CINCINNATI — Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and boosted Cincinnati’s struggling offense by hitting a double and scoring the only run as the Reds ended a seven-game losing streak by beating the Atlanta Braves 1-0 Saturday night.


Leake (10-11) gave up a pair of hits and walked three, leaving with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh. Jumbo Diaz got Tommy La Stella to hit into a forceout.


Aroldis Chapman, who pitched two innings on Friday night, fanned the three batters he faced in the ninth for his 27th save in 29 chances.


Leake opened the sixth with a double off Ervin Santana (13-7) and came around on Billy Hamilton’s sacrifice and Brandon Phillips’ two-out single. Leake has 67 career hits, the most by any pitcher in the majors since his debut in 2010.
