MLB Scores: Miami Marlins 2, Cincinnati Reds 5

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Jarred Cosart's first start for the Miami Marlins went well for five innings, but an ugly sixth inning proved to be the team's undoing in a 5-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

For about five innings, Jarred Cosart was looking like an impressive addition for the Miami Marlins in his debut against the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds threatened and picked up a run in the fourth, but otherwise Cosart was getting ground balls and avoiding free baserunners. Through five innings, he has struck out two batters and walked none. He also allowed 11 grounders in 17 balls in play in tonight's game, a staggering 65 percent ground ball rate. Things looked like they were progressing smoothly.

Then the sixth inning came and, with the game tied at one run a piece, everything ran afoul. Cosart got his third strikeout, then walked two batters and gave up a single to load the bases. Mike Redmond turned to Chris Hatcher, who gave up an unfortunate bloop double to shallow left field to Ryan Ludwick that scored two runs. One sacrifice fly later and the Marlins were down 4-1.

The Marlins could not really fight back versus Mat Latos and company. The only pop left in their bats was Giancarlo Stanton, who launched his National League-leading 26th homer of the season out to the Clevelander to lead off the eighth inning. That was one of two Miami hits after the sixth inning, and the Fish were simply unable to mount the comeback as the team eventually fell 5-2.
