Turner (1-2) picked up his first win in four starts since the Marlins acquired him from Detroit. He struck out three and walked two in just his second major-league win. Heath Bell and Steve Cishek each pitched a scoreless frame to finish the three-hit shutout, which was only the major league-best third this season for the Reds.
Carlos Lee had an RBI single before leaving the game with a neck strain. Lee lined a run-scoring single to right in the fifth, and a second run came home when he was caught in a rundown between first and second. Lee injured his neck on a head-first slide as he was tagged out by shortstop Wilson Valdez.
Reds starter Bronson Arroyo (12-8) allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings, snapping a streak of five straight wins dating to Aug. 6.
