Reds 7, Marlins 0

Another great pitching performance.

Another shutout.

Another winning road trip.

Edinson Volquez got the win, going eight shutout innings and allowing just three hits. He has now allowed just five hits in his last 21 innings. Volquez is now 4-2 and his earned run average is down to 3.47. Nick Masset pitched the ninth and looked outstanding.

The Reds have the lowest team ERA (3.61) in all of baseball. The pitching staff has six shutouts, matching the total for all of last season.

Brandon Phillips had his best game of the season, collecting three hits and driving in six runs. One of those hits was his fourth homerun of the year. Jerry Hairston, Joey Votto and Ramon Hernandez each had two hits. The Reds as a team had 14 hits on the night.

With the two-game split against the Marlins, the Reds now have a road series record of 4-0-1. Let’s hope they can keep it going and improve on their home record, starting tonight against the Brewers. It will be Manny Parra (0-4) against Bronson Arroyo (4-1).
