After Bruce ties it, Reds walk off with series win
 
Quote:

The way Scott Rolen was talking, you'd think he was lousy at pinch-hitting. Games like Sunday's certainly proved again that's not really the case.

Rested from the lineup, Rolen's RBI infield single as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the ninth scored Drew Stubbs to give the Reds a thrilling 6-5 come-from-behind win over the Marlins and two of three in the series.

"I said, 'Scotty, get ready,'" Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "He said, 'I'm already ready.' Scotty knows what to do."

Rolen would not have had an opportunity to come through if several others hadn't done likewise in front of him. First, there was lefty reliever Aroldis Chapman, who delivered two scoreless innings of one-hit relief with three strikeouts to hold Miami's 5-4 lead.

"Chapman had a masterful two innings," Baker said.

Leading off the Cincinnati ninth against closer Heath Bell in his first save situation as a Marlin, Jay Bruce sent a 2-1 fastball into the first row of seats in left-center field for his third homer of the season and his second of the day.
