A sacrifice fly in the 13th inning off the bat of Brandon Phillips gave the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday.  Once again, the story for Miami was great pitching and lackluster offense.   The two runs for Miami both came in the fifth inning and the team only compiled eight hits in the thirteen frames.   The loss means the Marlins will go at least one more series without a series win. Wade LeBlanc only lasted four innings in which he allowed two runs on seven hits.   The lefty threw 85 pitches due to a lack of command allowing three walks in the four frames.   The story was different with the bullpen however which combined for 8.2 innings consisting of twelve strikeouts and one run allowed.  That run came in the 13th off of Steve Cishek who was working his second inning of the day.   The loss was charged to the Marlins closer’ after he followed efforts by Tom Koehler, Mike Dunn, Chad Qualls, A.J. Ramos and Ryan Webb. Miguel Olivo picked up his first double of the year while Placido Polanco added his fourth for the only two extra base hits on the day for Miami.   Juan Pierre was 0-6 with three strikeouts, the second straight game that saw the left fielder strike out three times.    This is especially odd as Pierre is known for rarely striking out in his career. Miami will try to split the four game series on Sunday with Alex Sanabia scheduled to make the start.
