Ricky Nolasco had a rare off-night in terms of control walking two with the bases loaded in the Miami Marlins 6-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.   Known for his exceptional control, it was a strange sight to see the Marlins’ ace allow those two run scoring free passes during a five run second inning.   The loss was the third in a row for Miami and the team continued to struggle with the bats to fall to 11-28 on the season. Nolasco fell to 2-5 after allowing six runs on seven hits in his five innings of work.    All six of the runs came in the first two innings but the damage was more than done by that point especially for the light hitting Marlins.   Wade LeBlanc, Jon Rauch and A.J. Ramos combined for four innings of shutout relief after Nolasco exited.  On the year, Nolasco now has a 4.39 E.R.A and should have a better record. Adeiny Hechavarria tripled for the fourth time this year in one of his two hits on the day.   Those two were part of a team total of six hits in the game with Derek Dietrich having a pair of singles of his own.   Dietrich also had a run batted in to give him four on the season.    The Marlins were 1-5 with runners in scoring position and left a team total of four men on base. Miami will try and snap the losing streak on Wednesday with Alex Sanabia scheduled to make the start.
