Marlins 3, Reds 0
Tommy Phelps limited hot-hitting Cincinnati to one double over seven innings Wednesday, leading the Florida Marlins to a 3-0 victory that ended the Reds' winning streak at seven.
The Reds were held to one hit for the first time since Sept. 26, 2001, when Philadelphia's Randy Wolf beat them, 8-0.
Hee Seop Choi hit his fourth homer in his last five games against the Reds, who lead the National League Central and have the league's best record after a late-May surge. Ken Griffey Jr. went 0 for 3, ending his streak of homers in three consecutive games.
Phelps (1-0) got the Marlins started on their playoff surge last season at Great American Ball Park. He made his first major league start on May 23 and got his first win, an 8-4 victory that was the beginning of Florida's turnaround. His second appearance in Cincinnati was even better than the first.
The left-hander allowed only two walks and one hit in seven innings -- Sean Casey's double just inside first base in the fourth, turning a 2-0 lead over to the bullpen.
