Marlins sneak past Reds in 10 innings, 2-1

MIAMI (AP) - After tying the game in the eighth inning, the Cincinnati Reds had an opportunity to take the lead in the 10th.

Instead, they left Chris Heisey stranded at third and the Miami Marlins' Christian Yelich drove in the winning run in the bottom of the inning in a 2-1 loss Saturday night.

''It was going to be one of those games, two good bullpens going against each other after two quality starts by Homer (Bailey) and (Nathan) Eovaldi, who was terrific,'' Reds manager Bryan Price said. ''It comes down to one pitch, one play.''

The Marlins' Mike Dunn (9-5) struck out two batters in the top of the 10th after Heisey delivered a pinch-hit triple.

''There was the option to squeeze right there and that is something we thought about, but Billy (Hamilton) has been good with runners in scoring position,'' Price said. ''What we needed was a base hit.''

Both starting pitchers, the Reds' Bailey and the Marlins' Eovaldi, pitched seven innings and allowed one run.

The Marlins snapped a three-game losing streak overall and a seven-game skid to the Reds.

Two days after Jeff Mathis was the center of a controversial play at the plate, he came up big for the Miami Marlins scoring the winning run.

Mathis doubled to left to lead off the 10th off Sam LeCure (1-3), advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Reed Johnson, and scored on a base hit to center by Yelich.

''He's a huge part of our team, he cares a lot, not only about winning, but the ball club,'' Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. ''...So for him to come up there in that situation and get the big hit to start us off was huge and to score the winning run, I know that means a lot to him and I know he'll sleep good tonight.''

Mathis, who had a call at the plate overturned in Thursday's 3-1 loss as replay officials ruled that he was blocking the plate, had another play at home in the eighth inning of Saturday's game. Billy Hamilton hit a bloop single to left field and Mathis stayed back to wait for Yelich's throw home as Ramon Santiago slid in safely to tie the game at 1-1.

''Back in the day, that guy's out,'' Redmond said. ''Next year he'll be out.''

TRAINER'S ROOM

Marlins All-Star Henderson Alvarez was placed on the disabled list on Friday, retroactive to July 30, with the hopes that he will just need the 15 days before his next appearance.

''It doesn't appear to be a long-term thing, which is great news,'' Redmond said. ''It's just a matter of him just getting himself feeling good, feeling healthy and getting back to playing catch and throwing again.''

Redmond added that catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been dealing with a sore back, giving more opportunities to Mathis.

ON DECK

Mike Leake (8-9, 3.53) will start for the Reds in Sunday's series finale against Jacob Turner (4-6, 5.69). Leake is coming off a win against Arizona on July 29, pitching 7 2-3 scoreless innings and striking out eight.

BAILEY IN GOOD FORM

Bailey didn't feel sharp early, but he was able to get positive results--something he's done a lot of lately. Over his last six starts, Bailey is 1-1 with a 1.88 ERA.

Like Eovaldi, he would have liked to have gone further in the game.

''I would like to have gone eight (innings) but my .110 batting average just does not play very well.''
