Choo Shows Power Against Marlins

Posted: Updated:

 

MIAMI (AP) - Shin-Soo Choo hit two homers and four pitchers combined on an 11-hit shutout Wednesday night to help the Cincinnati Reds extend their winning streak to a season-best five games by beating Miami 4-0.

Choo hit solo homers in the fourth and sixth inning, giving him nine this season. The multihomer game was his second in eight days and ninth of his career.

Mike Leake (3-2) went 6 2-3 innings and pitched around nine hits. The Marlins had 14 baserunners but stranded 12 and hit into two double plays.

That gave the crowd of 14,866 little to cheer about, and the biggest roars came when highlights of the Miami Heat's playoff victory over the Chicago Bulls two miles away were shown on the video scoreboard.

Alex Sanabia (2-6) took the loss.
