PHOENIX (AP) - Paul Goldschmidt homered twice and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Cincinnati Reds 11-5 Friday night in Johnny Cueto's worst outing in three seasons.

Goldschmidt drove in three runs to raise his NL-leading RBI total to 65. Gerardo Parra hit a leadoff home run for Arizona and Jason Kubel tied his career high with four hits.

Kubel doubled in a run and scored twice.

Cueto (4-1) went 4 1-3 innings and allowed seven runs, his most since Milwaukee scored eight against him on Sept. 22, 2010. The 11 hits off him matched his career worst.

Jay Bruce hit his 150th career home run for the Reds. Joey Votto drove in two runs with a long homer and a double.
