Cincinnati Reds Ride Big Offensive Day in 7-3 Victory Over Miami Marlins

For the first time since the All-Star break, the Cincinnati Reds scored more than five runs in a game, and they did it in a big way. The offense collected 15 hits, including four from first baseman Todd Frazier in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Miami Marlins. 

"Everyone did a good job today manufacturing runs," said Frazier. "Ryan Ludwick hit a double — but we were hitting singles. That goes to show you we do have the power, but at the same time, we know how to get runs in doing the little stuff."

Every starter with the exception of Kristopher Negron collected a hit including pitcher Mike Leake. Leake also pitched well on the day going six innings allowing just one earned run on three hits. 

"Forget the quality start and the statistics, everybody was going out there and pitching like we've come to expect with this group," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "It's not just a six-inning, three-run quality start, but really pitching deep in the game and limiting the runs and giving us a chance to get a lead. We've been very good with a lead this year."

Cincinnati was able to score early and often plating runs in three of the first four innings. Zack Cozart collected an RBI single in the second and Jay Bruce did the same in the second. Later in the second, Ludwick doubled home Bruce to make it 3-0 in favor of the Reds. 
An inning later, Billy Hamilton and Frazier both had run scoring singles to push the lead to five. The final two runs came from Devin Mesoraco's two-run single in the sixth inning. 
With the win, the Reds took three of four from the Marlins giving them their first series win in the second half. Cincinnati heads back to Ohio Monday, but head north to Cleveland for a two game series with the Indians before making their way to Great American Ballpark.
