Reds 5, Marlins 3
The Reds have won four straight and could wake up tomorrow morning 7 1/2 games out in the mighty NL Central.
Aaron Harang pitched seven solid innings to go to 13-3. Jeff Keppinger, Brandon Phillips and Javy Valentin came up with big hits. David Weathers got the save.
But the most encouraging thing for the Reds may have been Gary Majewski pitching a scoreless eighth. Putting Majewski in to protect a one-run lead in his first stint here would have been managerial suicide. But Majewski's looks like a different guy this time around.
"Huge," Pete Mackanin said of Majewski's contribution.
If Majewski, who's got a 3.38 ERA in nine games since returning from Louisville, can join the set-up crew, the bullpen becomes much more solid.
