Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Jacob Turner spun seven scoreless innings of two-
hit ball Friday, as the Miami Marlins blanked the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0, in the
opener of a three-game set at Marlins Park.
Turner (1-2) struck out three and walked two to earn the victory. Heath Bell
turned in a scoreless eighth, while Steve Cishek worked around a two-out walk
in the ninth to secure the shutout.
Greg Dobbs clubbed a solo home run and Justin Ruggiano added an RBI and a run
scored for the Marlins, who were coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of
the Philadelphia Phillies.
Bronson Arroyo (12-8) was tagged with the loss after giving up all four runs
on nine hits and two walks with six strikeouts. The right-hander had won his
last five decisions.
The Reds managed just three hits overall in the setback, but maintain a
double-digit advantage atop the NL Central.
