MLB: Miami Marlins vs. Cincinnati Reds

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.
