CINCINNATI (AP) -- Todd Frazier and Jay Bruce hit two-run homers on Sunday, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-2 victory and another successful series against the Miami Marlins.

The Reds took two of the three games, with the teams opening the series by trading shutouts. The Reds have won 11 of their last 15 games against the Marlins.

Cincinnati's two hottest hitters carried them in the final game.

Frazier hit a two-run homer in the first inning off David Phelps (4-4), his fifth homer in the last five games. Frazier has 23 homers, two behind Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the major league lead. Fifteen of his homers have come at Great American Ball Park.

Bruce's 11th homer in the sixth inning snapped a 2-2 tie and extended his hitting streak to five games. He's 10 for 20 during the streak with a pair of homers.

Michael Lorenzen (3-2) went seven innings and singled home a run as he won back-to-back starts for the first time in his career.

Aroldis Chapman escaped a bases-loaded, none-out threat in the ninth, getting three strikeouts for his 15th save in 16 chances.

Dee Gordon opened the game with a single, stole second, advanced on Derek Dietrich's single and scored on Stanton's groundout, the outfielder's major league-leading 64th RBI. Justin Bour led off the second inning with his sixth homer, tying it at 2.

The Marlins had an aggressive play turn into an out at the plate in the fifth. Gordon singled, and Dietrich followed with a double off the base of the wall in center. Third base coach Lenny Harris sent Gordon, who slid headfirst into the plate but was tagged for the first out of the inning.


Marlins: Gordon shook his head several times after he was tagged on the left side of the face by catcher Brayan Pena has he tried to score in the fifth. Gordon stayed in the game.

Reds: CF Billy Hamilton was hit on the top of his left foot by one of Phelps' pitches as he tried to bunt in the second inning. He was in pain as he headed to first base but stayed in the game.


Marlins: After a day off, they open a 10-game homestand starting with St. Louis. Jose Urena (1-3) faces Carlos Martinez (7-3).

Reds: Following a day off, they open a series in Pittsburgh. Johnny Cueto (4-4) is 18-4 career against the Pirates, winning his last seven decisions against them since 2012. Jeff Locke (4-3) starts for Pittsburgh.
