Reds top Marlins in 13 innings

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - Brandon Phillips had a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 13th inning, giving the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday.
   
Facing Steve Cischek (1-2), Miami's seventh pitcher of the game, Shin-Soo Choo led off the 13th with an opposite-field double down the left field line, his sixth time on base in seven plate appearances - he walked three times. Zack Cozart sustained an apparent right-hand injury while trying to bunt, and pinch-hitter Cesar Izturis moved Choo to third with a fly ball to center field. Joey Votto was intentionally walked, and Phillips - on his bobblehead day - lofted the fly to center field.
   
Alfredo Simon (1-1) retired the Marlins in order to get the win.
