Posted: Updated:

 

MIAMI (AP) - NL RBI leader Brandon Phillips homered in the sixth inning and drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th, helping the Cincinnati Reds complete their second three-game sweep in a row by beating the Miami Marlins 5-3 Thursday night.

Mat Latos and two relievers combined on a six-hitter. Aroldis Chapman (3-1) blew a save for the first time in nine chances.

J.J. Hoover gave up a run in the 10th but earned his third save.

Pinch-hitter Donald Lutz led off the 10th with a single against Steve Cishek (1-4). Following a walk, a bunt and an intentional walk, Phillips lifted a flyball for his second RBI of the night and 36th of the season.

Jay Bruce followed with a two-run double and finished with three RBIs.
