Recap


Reds 3, Marlins 2 (13): Shin-Soo Choo reached base a career-high six times and scored the go-ahead run on Brandon Phillips’ walk-off sacrifice fly as host Cincinnati improved to 9-3 at home.

Choo went 3-for-4 and walked three times – becoming the first Cincinnati player since Sean Casey in 1999 to reach base six times – while Joey Votto added four hits and homered for the Reds. Alfredo Simon (1-1), the fifth Cincinnati pitcher, tossed a perfect 13th to collect the win.

The Reds managed to push a baserunner past second base for the first time in six innings when Choo reached on a ground-rule double to lead off the 13th inning and moved to third on a fly out from Cesar Izturis. Phillips lifted the second sinker he saw from Steve Cishek (1-2) into center, allowing Choo to score easily.

Votto led off the third with his second homer of the season to open the scoring and doubled the lead to 2-0 in the fourth when he followed a hit by Devin Mesoraco and a walk to Choo with a line-drive RBI single past second baseman Donovan Solano.

The Marlins answered with two runs in the fifth against Reds starter Bronson Arroyo. Pinch hitter Joe Mahoney delivered his first major-league hit and RBI on a liner up the middle and Placido Polanco followed with a run-scoring double two batters later to knot the game at 2.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Arroyo, who allowed two hits and fanned six over eight innings, became the 10th pitcher in team history to record 1,000 strikeouts with the Reds. … The Marlins have scored more than three runs twice through 18 games. … Cincinnati has limited opponents to two runs or fewer in six straight games for the first time since July 2010.
