Reds struggle into the break, lose 8-1 to Marlins

MIAMI (AP) – Dan Haren repeatedly pitched out of jams and allowed only one run in six innings to help the Miami Marlins beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-1 Sunday.

The Reds stranded seven runners in scoring position against Haren, and threatened in all but one inning he worked. They went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position against the right-hander.

The Reds’ defense was no better, committing a pair of errors that resulted in three unearned runs.

Justin Bour had three hits and three RBIs for the Marlins, who scored 22 runs in the final two games of the series and won three of four from the Reds. Casey McGehee, signed Friday for a second stint with Miami, drove in two runs for the second game in a row.

Haren (7-5) out-pitched Johnny Cueto (6-6), who allowed five runs, three earned, in five innings.
