Reds rip Marlins for another home win

CINCINNATI (AP) - Brandon Phillips drove in the go-ahead run for the second straight day, Joey Votto homered and had three hits, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Miami Marlins 10-6 Sunday for their sixth win in seven games.

Todd Frazier hit a three-run double in an eight-run seventh inning for the Reds, who won three of four from the Marlins and improved to a major league-best 10-3 at home.

After trading most of their best players in an offseason payroll purge, the Marlins have the worst record in the big leagues at 4-15 - the poorest 19-game start in team history.

With the score 2-2, Shin-Soo Choo drew Cincinnati's fifth walk off Alex Sanabia (2-2), who also hit Chin with a pair of pitches. Singles by Xavier Paul and Votto loaded the bases, and Phillips had an RBI single against Jon Rauch, and Paul scored when right fielder Giancarlo Stanton bobbled the ball for an error.

Phillips had a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 13th inning Saturday.

Devin Mesoraco added an RBI single, Frazier hit a bases-loaded double off the right-field wall for an 8-2 lead, Choo followed with an RBI double and Paul greeted Tom Koehler with a run-scoring single.

Logan Ondrusek (1-0) struck out the side in the seventh to win in relief of Homer Bailey, who allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings with eight strikeouts and three walks.

Sanabia (2-2) gave up five runs and five hits in six innings.

Miguel Olivo, who spent most of spring training as a non-roster player with the Reds before signing with Miami, hit a pinch three-run homer off Manny Parra in a four-run ninth.

Votto hit the first pitch he saw in the game for his third homer of the season and second in two days, a drive in the first inning. He homered in back-to-back games for the first time since Sept. 10-11, 2011, at Colorado.

Chris Valaika's had a tying single in the second. The Reds went back ahead in the fifth when Bailey beat out an infield hit on a dribbler up the third-base line and scored from second when Votto singled and center fielder

Justin Ruggiano overran the ball for an error. Valaika had another tying single in the sixth.

NOTES: The Marlins started 5-14 in 1995, 1998 and 1999, according to STATS. ... The Reds placed C Ryan Hanigan on the 15-day DL with a strained left side. Hanigan, also dealing with a bruised left thumb, injured his oblique reaching for a high fastball thrown by Aroldis Chapman on Friday night. The contract of C Corky Miller was selected from Triple-A Louisville, and RHP Nick Masset was moved to 60-day disabled list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. ... Choo has been hit nine times, tying the Reds record for a month set by Mike Donlin in May 1903, according to Elias Sports Bureau and reported by the Reds. Shoo has reached base 11 times in 12 plate appearances over the last two games. ... Stanton finished the series 4-for-18 with eight strikeouts. He is hitting .188.
