CINCINNATI (AP) - Scott Rolen drove in the winning run in the
ninth inning with a sharp infield single that third baseman Hanley
Ramirez failed to handle, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a
come-from-behind 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Jay Bruce started the comeback with his second home run of the
game and third of the season, an opposite-field drive into the
left-center field seats that cost Marlins new closer Heath Bell
(0-1) a save in his first opportunity. One out later, Drew Stubbs
chopped a single that hit off a leaping Ramirez's glove. Stubbs
moved to third on Ryan Hanigan's single to right field.
Pinch-hitting, Rolen hit a grounder to third that Ramirez, a
converted shortstop in his first season at third base, tried to
backhand but failed to grab it.
Left-hander Aroldis Chapman (1-0) pitched two shutout innings of
relief for the win.
