Bailey, Reds finish off Marlins

MIAMI (AP) ― One pitch from being pulled, and one strike from victory, Homer Bailey unleashed a 97 mph fastball to finish off the Marlins.

With his 125th pitch ― a career high ― Bailey completed a six-hitter and helped the Cincinnati Reds extend their winning streak to four games by beating Miami 6-2 Tuesday night.

Bailey went to a full count on the final batter, Greg Dobbs, and wouldn’t have faced another, manager Dusty Baker said.

“We were counting pitches in the ninth inning,” Baker said. “We were like, ‘Come on, Homer. Quit fouling them off, Dobbs.’”

Dobbs finally lined out weakly, and Bailey earned his first victory since April 5. The Reds climbed a season-best seven games above .500 as they began a nine-game trip.

The Marlins, who have the NL’s worst record, lost their third game in a row and fell to 5-12 at home.

Dodgers 2, Nationals 0
