Marlins Vs. Reds Final Score: Cincinnati Manages Walk-Off 6-5 Win

In Sunday's series finale, the Miami Marlins were unable to pick up another win over the Cincinnati Reds, giving up two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for a walk-off 6-5 Reds win.

All told, Zambrano went six innings and gave up four earned runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out six.

Miami was able to go up 5-4 in the top of the seventh, on a Chris Coghlan RBI double, a Jose Reyes RBI groundout and an Emilico Bonifacio RBI single. They were unable to hold the lead, however, as Heath Bell served up another Jay Bruce solo home run to start the Reds half of the ninth. Bell gave up singles to Drew Stubbs and Ryan Hanigan and pinch hitter Scott Rolen singles to bring in Stubbs for the walk-off win. Bell takes his first loss and first blown save of the year.

Marlins Vs. Reds Preview: Marlins Hope To Take Series From Reds If Offense Continues

After a disappointing loss opening their new stadium, the Miami Marlins bounced back on Saturday with a victory over the Cincinatti Reds. Giancarlo Stanton had three hits and batted in three runs, and Omar Infante, Hanley Ramirez and John Buck added three home runs to top the Reds 8-3. They're looking for their strong pitching to continue and hoping their offense has found its feet rather than flashed in the pan.

Carlos Zambrano will make his first start for Miami. He's looking for a fresh start with the Marlins, after a disappointing few years with the Cubs, posting a 29-20 record in his final three years with the club. Bronson Arroyo will be throwing for the Reds, and they hope that he looks more like his 17-win 2010 self than his 9-12, 5.07 ERA 2011 self. They may have hope there, as he gave up only 1 run in six and one-third innings in his final spring training game.
