CINCINNATI (AP) - Justin Ruggiano hit a solo homer off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning Friday night, sending the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 victory that snapped the Cincinnati Reds' winning streak at four games.
It was a stunning moment for the Marlins, who have the worst record in the majors at 4-13 and had only four homers - fewest in the majors - when Ruggiano connected off the Reds' spotless closer for his second homer in two games.
Chapman (2-1) hadn't allowed a run in his eight previous appearances. Ruggiano connected on a 3-1 pitch, driving it deep to center for his third homer.
Left-hander Mike Dunn (1-0) retired the last two batters in the eighth. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth for the Marlins' first save of the season.
