MIAMI – Jesús Luzardo allowed one hit and no runs in six-plus innings, and the Miami Marlins beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-1 to take the rubber game of their series.

Luzardo had by far his best outing since being acquired from Oakland for Starling Marte at the trade deadline.

The left-hander tied a career high with eight strikeouts.

Jesús Sánchez hit a two-run homer in the first, his sixth homer of the year and his second in two days.

Miami won the final two games of the series after losing 11 in a row to Cincinnati over the past two years.
