Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Brandon Phillips drove in the go-ahead run as part of a three-run rally in the 10th inning and the Cincinnati Reds swept the Miami Marlins with a 5-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Thursday.

With one out and the bases loaded, Phillips hit a sacrifice fly off Steve Cishek (1-4) to left, allowing Daniel Lutz to reach home. Jay Bruce followed with a double, scoring Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Votto.

J.J. Hoover gave up a run in the home half, but was able to notch his third save.

Reds starter Mat Latos, who was looking to win his fifth consecutive start, allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in 8 1/3 innings. However, Aroldis Chapman (3-1) allowed the Marlins to tie the game when he gave up an RBI triple to Marcell Ozuna in the ninth inning.

The Reds have won six straight and 10 of their last 12 games.

Juan Pierre homered for the first time since June 23, 2012, while Matt Diaz drove in one run for the Marlins, who have lost five straight. Starter Jose Fernandez allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in a no-decision.
