Janish's base hit lifts Reds over Marlins

May 15, 2008 - 4:11 AM CINCINNATI (Ticker) -- Rookie Paul Janish made his first career hit a memorable one.

Janish lined a game-winning single with two outs in the 10th inning Wednesday to lift the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-6 victory over the Florida Marlins.

Jerry Hairston Jr. went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored and Adam Dunn blasted a solo homer for Cincinnati, which led, 6-0, entering the ninth before blowing that advantage.

With two on and the score tied at 6-6 in the bottom of the 10th, Janish ripped an RBI single down the right field line off reliever Renyel Pinto (1-2), plating pinch runner Johnny Cueto from second base for the winning run.

"I'd like to say that it only gets better from here, but this is pretty tough to beat," said Janish, who received a bloody nose in the post-game celebration. "I got crushed. Somebody got me pretty good in the nose. But it was well worth it. I'd do it again tomorrow if I got the chance."

It was the first major-league hit for Janish, who was called up Wednesday from Class AAA Louisville.

"Janish didn't beat us," Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We walked two guys to set that up. But that was our best guy out there. You tip your hat to the kid."

The rookie infielder, who had batted .296 with four home runs and 20 RBI in the minors this season, was taking the roster spot of injured shortstop Jeff Keppinger, who suffered a broken kneecap on Tuesday.

Reds reliever Jared Burton (2-1) worked the top of the 10th to earn the win for Cincinnati, which has won three straight from Florida.

The game went into extra innings due to some heroics provided by the Marlins in the top of the ninth.

Florida had trailed, 6-0, entering the frame before knotting the game on Cody Ross' three-run homer off closer Francisco Cordero.

"You can't ever give up in this ballpark," Ross said. "You've got to play to the last out in every inning. We did that. We got to Cordero pretty good. I felt pretty comfortable in the ninth."

"Everything was going as scripted until that ninth," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Just goes to show you that the game is never over until that last out."

It was Cordero's first blown save in eight opportunities this season.

"I know Francisco feels terrible," Baker said. "He's not going to blow many of them."

The bullpen's meltdown ruined a solid performance by Reds starter Bronson Arroyo, who threw seven shutout innings on short rest.

"I felt great on three days' rest," Arroyo said. "You pitch one day, and then you're out there again. I felt strong."
