CINCINNATI – Pablo López allowed two hits and tied his career high with 11 strikeouts over seven dominant innings and the Miami Marlins edged the Cincinnati Reds 2-1.
Joey Wendle hit a two-run single off Hunter Greene as Miami for the third time in nine games.
A day after Cincinnati piled up 11 runs in a romp, López turned in a stopper-like performance for the Marlins.
He overcame Mike Moustakas’s solo homer to finish with a flourish, retiring his final nine batters and striking out the side in the sixth.
Lopez didn’t walk anybody while retiring 21 of his last 22 Cincinnati batters.
