Shin-Soo Choo singled, doubled and scored twice, helping left-hander Tony Cingrani get a victory in his first major league start, and the Cincinnati Reds won their fourth in a row, beating the Miami Marlins 11-1 on Thursday night.
The Reds' winning streak has featured stingy starting pitching. The 23-year-old Cingrani needed a lot of pitches, but kept up the trend.
The left-hander gave up five hits, including Justin Ruggiano's solo homer, in five innings, striking out eight and throwing 102 pitches. Manager Dusty Baker gave him a congratulatory handshake and a big smile when he reached the dugout after fanning Greg Dobbs to end the Miami fifth.
He got the better of a matchup of two up-and-coming starters. Right-hander Jose Fernandez (0-1) lasted only four innings, giving up five runs and seven hits while taking his first big league loss.
Miami fell to 3-13, worst in the majors. The Marlins have been shut out or limited to one run in nine of their games.

Tony Cingrani mowing down Marlins batters.What a game that was yesterday! It’s amazing how a four-game winning streak makes you forget all about a five-game losing streak. It’s almost as if winning cures all.
Except for criticizing Joey Votto, but that’s lead to a fabulous new meme.
Yesterday had everything. Good pitching, good offense, and a feel-good story about a bat boy...
This will be one of if not the best home run of the season--and yes, I am saying that with a 145 or so games left for all 30 MLB teams. In Thursday night's contest against the Miami Marlins Reds third baseman did something that you don't see many people do. He promised the team's batboy, Ted Kremer, a home run.

Cincinnati Reds right-handed starting pitcher Johnny Cueto hit the disabled list earlier this week due to a lat strain. Initially, the team was optimistic that he would only be required to miss a few starts. However, Cincinnati still doesn't know when Cueto will resume throwing, according to John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Reds trainer Paul Lessard told reporters that...
On December 11, 2012, Shin-Soo Choo was brought to the Cincinnati Reds along with Jason Donald in a three team, nine player trade that also involved the Arizona Diamondbacks. The trade sent former Reds center fielder, Drew Stubbs, to in-state rival Cleveland.

When one door closes, another door opens.
Such is the case with Johnny Cueto and Tony Cingrani -- the latter of which figures to replace Cueto's spot in the rotation once the time comes.
On Monday, the Reds promoted RHP Justin Freeman from Triple-A Louisville to provide some help to a weary bullpen. However, Cingrani is expected to make Cueto's next scheduled start...

When the Reds game ended tonight, Todd Frazier’s OPS sat exactly on the beautiful .900 number.
He has become a middle of the order hitter, and he’s done it his way just like Sinatra. The Toddfather’s way is **** swings. Borderline flailing at pitches. Wasting a guy’s best stuff with your worst. When he’s not suspecting it and his back is turned, you pull out your Tommy...
