Reds trounce Marlins, 'over' cashes

MIAMI (AP) - Billy Hamilton scored three times to help the Cincinnati Reds break out of an offensive slump and beat the Miami Marlins 7-3 on Sunday.

Todd Frazier had a season-high four hits and Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run single for the Reds, who had 15 hits and took three of four games in Miami. They improved to 5-11 since the All-Star break and scored more than five runs for the first time during that stretch.

The Marlins managed only eight runs and 24 hits in the series, and have lost to Cincinnati in eight of their past nine games.

Mike Leake (9-9) allowed one run in six innings. He has won all three of his career starts against the Marlins.

Jacob Turner (4-7), starting in place of injured right-hander Henderson Alvarez, allowed five runs in four innings. That hiked his ERA to 5.97.

Zack Cozart's two-out RBI single in the second put Cincinnati ahead. In the third inning, Hamilton and Jay Bruce each singled, stole second and scored. Bruce singled home Hamilton and scored on a double by Ryan Ludwick.

Two-out, run-scoring singles by Hamilton and Frazier in the fourth made it 5-0. The Reds went 7 for 18 with runners in scoring position.

Garrett Jones hit his 12th homer for the Marlins, who totaled five hits. They went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position.

Leake escaped a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the third without allowing a run. Jordany Valdespin hit into a forceout, Giancarlo Stanton struck out and Casey McGehee grounded out.

Stanton, the NL leader in home runs and RBIs, struck out four times for the second Sunday in a row. Stanton also robbed Kristopher Negron of an RBI extra-base hit when he made a long run for an over-the-shoulder catch near the right-field foul pole in the second inning.

ON DECK

The Reds open a four-game series at Cleveland on Monday when Alfredo Simon (12-6, 2.84 ERA) pitches against Corey Kluber (11-6, 2.61). Simon is 0-3 since his first All-Star selection. The Reds have lost their past nine games in Cleveland, and they're 0-5 on the road against American League teams this year.

The Marlins are off Monday and open a three-game series at Pittsburgh on Tuesday when Brad Hand (2-3, 4.15) pitches against Charlie Morton (5-10, 3.54). Miami has lost six consecutive games in Pittsburgh.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Frazier hobbled briefly when Valdespin stepped on his left foot on a play at first base but remained in the game.
