MIAMI, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Greg Dobbs stroked a key two-run double in the eighth inning and Florida posted a 6-5 win over Cincinnati in the first game of a doubleheader.
The Marlins broke a 3-3 tie with three runs in the eighth.
Bill Bray came in to relieve and the Marlins scored two more crucial runs when Logan Morrison singled and, one out later, Dobbs scalded a 2-0 pitch into the right field corner.
The Marlins needed those runs in the ninth when Cincinnati's Todd Frazier blasted a two-run shot off Edward Mujica, but Steve Cishek recorded the final two outs for his second save for Florida.
Morrison, in his first game back with the Marlins after a controversial demotion to the minors, smacked a solo homer and Jose Lopez also went deep for Florida.
Joey Votto cracked a two-run homer for the Reds.
