    He did just that with a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 13th inning, giving the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday. Brandon Phillips drove in the go-ahead run for the second straight day and Todd Frazier hit a three-run double in an eight-run seventh inning for the Reds, who won three of four from the Marlins and improved to a major league-best 10-3 at home. Brandon Phillips didn't want to let his bobblehead day go by without doing something good. Facing Steve Cischek , Miami's seventh pitcher of the game, Shin-Soo Choo led off the 13th with an opposite-field liner down the left field line that bounced into the stands for a ground-rule double, his sixth time on base in seven plate appearances he walked three times. They had to overcome going 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and leaving 17 runners on base, the most since they left 17 runners on against Philadelphia in a 19-inning game on May 25, 2011.
