MIAMI -- Martin Prado wasnt optimistic when the ball left his bat, and Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly also underestimated the opposite-field fly. Cheap Giovani Bernard Jersey .Right fielder Jay Bruce was fooled, too, which meant trouble for the Cincinnati Reds.Prados fly fell for a two-out, two-run double that put the Marlins ahead to stay in the fifth inning, and they beat shaky Cincinnati 4-2 Saturday.It was weird -- the ball kept carrying for some reason, Prado said. It had a weird spin, and I think Bruce misjudged it and overran it. Im glad. Its one of the signs Im blessed.Prado went 3 for 3 to hike his average to .323. J.T. Realmuto added two hits and scored three times.All-Star Adam Duvall hit his 23rd home run for the Reds, and Brandon Phillips had two hits and an RBI with a broken left hand. Phillips played less than 24 hours after suffering a hairline fracture when he was hit by a pitch from Jose Fernandez.But too often the last-place Reds hurt themselves, and the Marlins were able to capitalize.You take wins any way you can get them, Mattingly said. Weve had some losses in these kind of games. Theyre the kind were going to have to continue to win.John Lamb (1-6) took the loss despite a career-high nine strikeouts in five innings, and defensive lapses contributed to all three runs against him, with one unearned.Worst was the misplay by Bruce hours after he was added to the NL All-Star team.Obviously it looked terrible, and it was embarrassing, Bruce said. I felt like I had plenty of time. I looked back up and it wasnt where I thought it was going to be.In addition, conservative baserunning likely cost Cincinnati a run in the fifth. Catcher Ramon Cabrera led off with an apparent triple to right field, but third base coach Billy Hatcher stopped him at second.Miami center fielder Marcell Ozuna threw out Phillips trying to advance from first to third on a single in the seventh. Phillips was initially ruled safe, but the call was reversed in a replay review, and the Reds failed to score despite three hits in the inning.Just an incredible throw, Mattingly said. Thank God for relay, right?Cincinnati also dropped the ball on a rundown but still came managed the putout, however unsightly. It was scored 1-3-6-3-1-4.Adam Conley (6-5) singled to start a rally, raising his average to .065. The left-hander also limited Cincinnati to two runs in 5 2/3 innings.He got us where we needed to get, Mattingly said.Four relievers combined for 3 1/3 shutout innings. A.J. Ramos pitched around a walk in the ninth for his 27th save and was helped by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, who made a leaping catch of a liner by Phillips.Miami has won the first two games of the series while outscoring Cincinnati 7-3.The Marlins scored an unearned run in the first inning when Lamb threw a curve that crossed up and eluded Cabrera, allowing Realmuto to score from third on a passed ball.My fault, Lamb said. Coming into the game we knew our signs and I happened to have a brain cramp.MUSCLING UPMiamis Giancarlo Stanton drove in a run in the eighth with a single that shattered his bat.Thats what you call strong, Prado said. Youve got to be strong to get a base hit when your bat is in 25 pieces.ALL-STAR PROMOTIONOzuna learned less than two hours before the game he will start in the All-Star Game because of injuries to other players.I feel awesome, Ozuna said. I never think of starting in the All-Star Game.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: RHP Carter Capps is scheduled to begin throwing July 19 and remains on schedule in his comeback from Tommy John surgery.UP NEXTMarlins RHP Tom Koehler (6-7, 4.40) is scheduled to start Sunday against LHP Cody Reed (0-3, 9.00). Cheap Andre Smith Jersey . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. Cheap Bengals Jerseys . Nathan MacKinnon, Jamie McGinn and Jan Hejda also scored for the Avalanche, who won despite being outshot 38-23. MacKinnons goal, also on the power play, came with just over a minute remaining. . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins.Shaun Murphy avenged his Crucible final defeat to Stuart Bingham by winning a deciding-frame contest to lift the World Grand Prix title in Llandudno. Bingham overcame Murphy 18-15 to become world champion last May, but it was Murphy who held his nerve this time to win 10-9. Murphy had looked in total command after taking a 4-1 lead but, in a scrappy contest, Bingham hit back with four frames in a row to take a 5-4 advantage at the break.In the evening session Murphy took control to go 8-7 up, but Bingham cleared the ccolours in a lengthy next frame to level matters. C.J. Uzomah Jersey. Murphy made a break of 120 under extreme pressure in the 17th frame - the first century break of the final - before Bingham took the 18th to ensure a winner-takes-all shoot-out.The final frame was a disjointed affair but Murphy held his nerve to close out his first major event title since the 2015 Masters.
