Selke already made it 1-0 after five minutes as he sent the ball into the top corner with a fine finish after a cross from Alexander Esswein.
Shortly after, Hertha were reduced two ten men as Jordan Torunarigha was sent off after he brought down Timo Werner in a dangerous position. But that didn't stop the guests from making it 2-0 as Salomon Kalou headed the ball into the net after a free-kick cross.
In the second half, another set piece led to Hertha's third goal as Davie Selke made it 3-0 after a corner.
With 68 minutes on the clock, Willi Orban got RB Leipzig a goal when he headed the ball into the net.
It looked as if the game would end 1-3, but in the injury time Marcel Halstenberg suddenly made it 2-3. But it was too late for RB Leipzig to more, and Hertha's 10 men got the three points.
Elsewhere, in Hannover, a true goal show took place earlier today in the Bundesliga as Hannover 96 and Bayer Leverkusen drew 4-4.
