MIAMI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds' push toward the playoffs was slowed Friday by a last-place team and a rookie who earned his first National League victory. Jacob Turner allowed only two hits in a career-high seven innings to help the Miami Marlins beat the NL Central leaders 4-0. Turner (1-2) outpitched Bronson Arroyo (12-8), who gave up four runs in six innings. The Reds became the final NL team to make their debut at Marlins Park, and they couldn't muster much offense in the spacious ballpark. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth to complete a three-hitter, and Cincinnati was shut out for only the third time, fewest in the NL. Turner's 10th career start was his best yet. He walked two, struck out three, lowered his ERA to 3.75 and helped the Marlins break a three-game losing streak. The 21-year-old right-hander's only other career victory came July 22 for Detroit. He was acquired the next day by Miami in a trade that sent right-hander Anibal Sanchez and second baseman Omar Infante to the Tigers. Arroyo, who had been 5-0 in his past six starts, gave up nine hits, including Greg Dobbs' fifth homer. The Marlins' Justin Ruggiano reached base three times and doubled home a run. Miami scored twice as a result of a wild sequence in the fifth inning. With Ruggiano at second base and Jose Reyes at first and two out, Carlos Lee singled to right field. After Ruggiano beat the throw home, Lee was hung up between first and second. Reyes then broke for home and beat shortstop Wilson Valdez's throw to the plate for a 4-0 lead. Lee was then tagged out at second when he slid headfirst into Valdez's right leg, and he left the game with a strained neck. His status is day to day. Miami took a 1-0 lead in the third. Rob Brantly led off with a single, advanced on a single by Bryan Petersen and scored on a double by Ruggiano. Dobbs homered to lead off the fourth. NOTES: Reyes' sharp single in the fifth deflected off the gloves of Arroyo and a diving Brandon Phillips at second base, then continued into center field. ... The Marlins transferred INF-OF Emilio Bonifacio to the 60-day disabled list and selected the contract of INF Gil Velazquez, who entered the game for Lee in the sixth. ... Reds 3B Scott Rolen was given the night off. ... RHP Johnny Cueto, scheduled to start Saturday for the Reds, has a 5.63 ERA in three career starts in Miami. LHP Mark Buehrle, scheduled to start for Miami, has a 1.29 ERA in three starts against Cincinnati.
